    Problem 1: These scrapes that look like they could be rubbed off but don't. They came from people opening their doors into my car, so I guess it is their paint or plastic or something :dunno: Or do they need to be repainted?

    Good sized dent with that scrape I am talking about inside the dent

    Movre of the same on the driver's side (not so much of a dent though)

    Problem 2: Dirty exhaust pipe. I assume I should use some sort of abrasive polish, no idea really :dunno:

    Thanks :hs:

    That first scratch looks like it'll need touch-up paint. You may be able to remove the second one with an abrasive polish like Meguiar's ScratchX or similar (that is, if you don't want to order something online).

    As for the exhaust tip, I'd get some #0000 steel wool, and follow that with a good metal polish. I'd probably grab for some Meguiar's NXT Metal Polysh.

    Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

    Although it doesn't look like it in the pics, both 'scrapes' look like the same color. Thanks again though, :wavey:
