Scraped Wheel Arch
Posted 10 February 2019 - 12:40 PM
I've had my car 4 years today and this is the second time I've scraped it, reversing it into the garage, which in my opinion is pretty good going.
The first time the driver's side mirror hit the wall, which I replaced, and now I've lightly touched the front passenger side wheel arch which has taken a bit of paint off.
I'm worried about rust. Anything I can put over the marks to protect it?

Bugger! Not the best 4th Anniversary present.
Have the marks gone through the clear coat? I would put a layer of wax over it to protect it, but I guess it cannot be polished out?

Sorry to hear about the scrape
Les has good advice. Some wax would do the job well. Or even some quick detailer (not as good, but better than nothing).
How bad is it mate?

It's been raining today.
If I remember, I'll take a photo to show you.
Can you recommend some wax, perhaps one you can get from Halfords?
I have my car washed by a detailer, he will know if it can be polished out I guess.

I've got one of those garage mirrors in my garage so I don't get too close to stuff, might be worth an investment!
