blonde prick hits my car

So a ****ing 16 yr old blonde(no offense to other blondes) prick hit my car from behind today, not serious but it left a white mark on the right side of the bumper, so i wrote his punk ass plate number and went home(talked to him told him to **** off, cause it wasnt that bad) So i got home cleaned it with some aerospace protectant, cause i didnt know what else to use and theres a rough scruff mark in the plastic(~2'')and the plastic think under there where the refector is has a bit of plastic sticking out. What do you guys think I should do, i mean on a sclae of 1-10 this would prob be a 1.5-2, not to serious but it pisses me off cause my car doesnt even have 1000 miles on it yet.......god damnit

Ill get a picture of it soon with my nasty camera phone

If you could take a digital pic and send it to me I could be helpful. Is the scuff just paint transfered from the other vehicles bumper?

scuff marks

If you are that new to the game you may want to defer to the experts and take it to a local detail shop. They can probably wet sand it. I can not say for sure just from looking at the pictures if the spot will look 100%. It can't hurt if you want to give it a shot with some rubbing compound. Your local auto store may have a small container of 3m or meguiars. I sell those but for one bottle plus shipping you would be better of going local. Feel free to still ask any question I will be more than happy to assist.

wow man, i got to give you credit for letting him go like that. I'll bet he was sweating bullets because he just started driving and hit a BMW. Some people would have gone crazy on him but you were chill. I respect your actions.

Get some scratchx from your local autozone, rub the hell out of it. That should take out most of it.
