    The front passenger door is not deep. Primer level or above deep. The suicide door is deep. :wtc:

    I used Milin's SSR2 last Friday and took off the water spots I had. This event happened on my bday too.

    I don't know what to do. The marks are killing me. :wtc:

    Sucks that some dirtbag decided you can't have nice things, huh? Polishing will help but repainting is the only way to make it perfect.

    I know how you feel, my Accord was broken into once and a later attempt did $600 in damage to the door. :sad2:

    Find a local body shop or mobile touch up painter who performs SSR (Sprayless Scratch Repair). See these examples:
    http://www.mingdrdent.com/ssr/

    They color match your paint, mix a paste that they rub into the scratch, then buff it out. It takes 25 minutes, and will probably cost about $200 for the entire car. And of course...it's permanent.

    that's really sad :(
    this is one of the reason people with roadsters either park with the top down or leave the doors unlocked.

    if they want in, at least they won't have to cut the top :wtc:

    thieves do what thieves do. Keying is so vengeful though!

    A civic on campus (a very nice looking 04 civic Si) which looks to be this guys pride and joy was keyed. I noticed it yesterday. It isn't bad at all and im tempted to offer him my services to try and buff it out at a discounted rate.

    it makes me really REALLY sad. :-/
