    Mudguards damaged paint on skirts

    Ive just got round to taking my front mud flaps off my coupe, because they were slamming into the ground all the time, and its still standard ride hight at the moment.

    But where they wrap around the, side skirts, it rubbed the paint really really bad. (ill get some picks tomorow) but will this be posible to get out with some fancy polish, as im really not up on the cleaning side of cars. or is it a job for the paint shop.

    If it's rubbed the paint, then polish isn't going to reaply paint for you I'm afraid.

    Wishful thinking i suppose then lol. at least there only a small section that would need spraying.

    Might get away with going over it with a touch up pen, then wet sanding it back with some 1500 then some 3000, then polish it up and wax it.
