    It's not my truck but its still pissing me off! I'd go ape shit!! I'd sit in my truck until he came out and ask him WTF his problem was!

    If you don't like confrontation, try pouring fish juice into his air intake at the bottom of his windshield. Or sugar in the gas tank.

    Of course, I'm just joking and would not indorse these illegal activities!!

    :D

    I just got done cleaning , touch up painting ( from idiot who hit my rear qtr panel ) and removing light scuffs and scratches . I was park at my condo and my truck was apparently slammed into , broke light , big dent and minor scratches . Still hunting for this pussy but anyways back to the point of this thread I just used a magic eraser and wow for any light scratches and bugs on the front end this product is simply amazing !

    Are you talking the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? That's like 1000 grit scotch brite... I might work but the paint/finish is still paying the price.

    Hmmmm I might try the magic eraser. My truck is a gold color so any swirls it makes shouldn't be too noticeable. :)



    Besides, I'd rather have some swirls that you can hardly see unless you're looking at it in th light from a certain angle than those hideous marks! :p

    Wow.. once or twice is one thing, but damn!! thats a whole lotta disrespect.


    One reason i got sliders a year before i knew i would actually need them is to prevent some dings. After i bought the taco, i park in my garage religiously, NEVER in the condo parking lot anymore.


    Ya might want to be the good neighbor and warn the new occupant of the parking spot haaa.

    Perfect-It

    It is a very fine cut rubbing compound use it by hand, orbital or high speed.

    It is pretty hard to ruin your vehicle paint with it except if you use a high speed buffer incorrectly.

    It is what pros use but a novice can as well it will take out scuffs and and residual clear coat burn or paint from the other vehicle.

    Some auto part stores carry it.

    I have never tried a magic eraser on a vehicle, but I guess as long as you do it softly and with enough water it is a very fine cut pad. 3M makes a perfect it pad as well.

    Contrary to belief sugar doesn't wreck a engine. It only clogs the filters. Put bleach, or put some water in his tank for some damage :)
