That’s odd, especially as it must have risen/fallen in height.
I also think whoever was in control of it had pasta for lunch, and is possibly a racist.
Other than that pish, you need Nealglover.

Ive had cars that were pristine and got so wound up when they inevitably get scratched. My current car however i deliberately went out to find a scratched and dinged example just so i wouldnt give a shit. Also meant i got something of a bargain. Hell its even got a ding in the roof.
If you have to repair it try yourself with those colour repair sticks from halfords is the cheapest option if not the best.Posted 4 years ago
Hmmm the scrote idea is concerning as my partner has had a disagreement with our next door neighbours teenage friends who park at the rear of our property and drop litter. It was my first thought when she sent me the pics to be honest.
Though she seems certain it wasn’t there this morning prior to her long drive to see family. She seems to think it more likely it happened in the supermarket carpark.
Probably to stop me from practicing with my gaelic curling stick out the back of the house…a joke
Were gutted but not wound up?
Friends have lost children and weve lost both our mothers in the last few years!? Its only a car..just intrigued.
Re the battered car tips…
I drive an old van for this very reason. My partner wanted a nice safe car in which to transport our new born… 🙄Posted 4 years ago
It looks like it has gone through the clear coat and damaged the colour coat underneath.
If that’s the case then the Dupont Scratch Repair Stick won’t touch it I’m afraid.
The DuPont Repair Stick is basically just very thinned down clear coat that acts as a filler on light scratches in the clear coat to stop them disturbing the path of the light to the colour coat beneath.
But being very thinned down it won’t last all that long anyway, so it’s only a temporary measure really.
The colour sticks are even more temporary, they are basically a hard wax with a pigment added that fill the scratch.
A crayon the right colour would do a Similar job 🙂
But if it’s broken through the clear and damaged the colour, the scratches can’t be removed by machine polishing, so I’m afraid your only two real options are to have it painted, or leave itPosted 4 years agoConquerorMember
Difficult to see how deep it is. Looks like it might be deep enough to need filled.
Might need filled, sanded, painted, adjusted. Its this labour that could cost a fair bit.
Paint could be 100-150 £ … they’ll probably mix up more than they need.

Although if it’s gone to the bare metal it will become strucutral at some point, if you don’t get it resprayed, at least fill it with lacquer to protect the metal underneath, (I’ve used clear nail varnish in the past on cars I didn’t much care about)Posted 4 years agoamplebrewSubscriber
That looks like intentional damage as the marks whilst going in the same direction, are slightly different shapes
That type of damage would suggest a young person. From experience, adults tend to damage vehicles by kicking or punching (usually whilst drunk and/or angry) rather than use some type of implement.Posted 4 years agoInbred456Member
I know it’s crap and there is not much you can do. Put the money aside and get everything done before you sell. The only thing worse than this is to get it repaired then bump the car or have it scratched again. If it’s not down to the metal it’ll be fine over the winter.Posted 4 years ago
