    My car scraped against a rusty pole (it was lower than my window, I couldn't see it).

    So it scraped up my paint a bit but mostly it's just got rust on/in the paint that came off the pole.

    My buddy told me it was a "that'll buff right out" kind of thing. I don't know much about cars and I don't have the money to take this to the shop right now but I'd like to clean it up a bit. I don't mind the paint scrapes but is there a way I can get that rust off/out at home with common or inexpensive materials?

    Picture would help. Usually a cleaner wax or product like Meguiars ScratchX will take off minor scuffing that transfers something to your paint.

    The dark black is where it's all the way through the paint. The rest is rust from the pole and shallow scratches.
