Someone Scraped My Car! Detailers help please!

Went out to my car during lunch at work today and saw the below scrape(s).:censo r:

The one I am worried about it the length of my iphone and I can feel it when I scrape my nail accross it. Anyone, have some tips for getting this out? It is white so I am assuming just the primer is affected and not the paint.

btw, car is Topaz

The pic is inconclusive for me but it looks like paint transfer (although you did say you have a scratch you can feel with a fingernail). I took some AIO to a paint "rub" last weekend and it removed the transferred paint very easily.

Send a message via AIM to trippmann
you may have to contact a professional with wet sanding skills.

I had to get someone to wet sand it for me (blows)... family friend did it for cheap though. I feel like my car is a magnet, every time i turn around there is something going on with it.

I had to sand this scratch and didn't think I'd get rid of it but I did.

Before:




After sanding and compounding:



I think this was a "finished" picture.
