    Long story short, My roomate backed into me when the evo was parked, Basically just dented the licence plate, and got some paint on the bumper, New licence plate is on the way. I'm not mean enough to make him pay for a new spray or anything, and a couple of my freinds said that I could easily take that off, Im just worried about with what, I was going to go at it with a polishing pad and a dremel and see how that worked out, I can almost scrach the paint off with my fingernail but some of it is a little too deep. What would you guys suggest?

    scratchx and a terry cloth should take care of that

    Yes it does, it should remove all the red paint. The scuffing probably can't be fixed perfectly, but Scratch X should make that look better too. You should be able to remove all the red paint in a couple of minutes.

    If you havent gotten it out yet, i would be happy to meet you somewhere and remove it for you.

    A little clay and some scratch-X should fix it right up. All in exchange for taking your EVO on a spin. :naughty:

    I just did a job similar to this one, the bumper was made out of black plastic the paint was gouged and with the the other cars paint. First sanded, cleaned, touch up paint, sanded then buffing I had a apply a second coat, looked good as new

    Thanks guys, I did it with the X and it took a damn long time, I took a buffer pad and just went crazy for like a half hour, it took forever, but it came off just fine, Thanks guys
