Thread: Door scuffs

  1. #1

    Default Door scuffs

    Hey folks, I have a1994 Z-71 with a little over 51,000 on the clock. I am very anal about my truck and don't drive it enough because of this. Anyway i go to great lengths to park away from others but this week some AZZZZZ managed to scuff up my passenger door a little> Not real bad but noticible. If wax doesn't hide it what should I try next?Sorry for the long rant. Thanks

    maybe some rubbing compund, swirl mark remover, and polish? do it with a random orbital buffer if you have one. it will really save your arm and get the job done quicker!

    hope this helps! keep us posted!

    Im not big on rubbing compound it can take paint off if not used correctly pretty easily.

    Try some No7 polishing compound or turtle wax polishing compound its white vs rubbing compound that is red.

    It will take scuffs out and stains like from trees or the likes also.

    All depends on the damage,sometimes you have to use a 2000 grit sandpaper to get it off. Then rubbing compound then the polish compound..
