    I used this video to fix a paint scuff on the back bumper of my car. By coincidence it was also be a C4 Corvette! This one was my fault though. Backing into the garage with an unfamiliar car...mistakes were made. But luckily because of this video it's like it never happened. Thanks Chris!

    Had a paint related question and didn't see a video on it.
    I've got a black car that's over 13 years old and the front bumper doesn't look very good. Lots of dings and gashes from years of getting hit with small debris, won't come out with normal polishing compound.
    What would you do to restore it to a like-new condition for minimum cost? Remove the bumper, sand and spray paint? Buy a used bumper from a parts car? Seems like the perfect topic for a new video..

    Hey Chris, what else do you recommend using other than the Magic Eraser? I can't found those over where I am. Does 3000 or 5000 grid sand paper work the same?

    lol. I love your videos but spare us the bullshit.
    The story that starts with "after a nice Dinner at Jc Penny's" is usually a lie.
    You know how hard someone has to try to scrape your car there.and literally nowhere else? Really difficult. In fact, one of the few ways you get scratches there and nowhere else is because you tried to fit it into a tight spot at an angle. Chris didn't leave a note though. =D

    I don't usually put much into these hack fixes BUT this worked 100%. There were a few factors. First it must be topical paint transfer. It can't be embedded into the paint job. Second your directions and instructions were spot on. And third you MUST have patients. Thanks again for this video. My red mustang looks as good as new. BTW it was yellow paint transfer from a parking lot pole.

      @ChrisFix If you could check my message to you on twitter that would really be great! Because the paint from the pot is like sticking out if you know what i mean, there's like this small tab and im scared to just pull it off because i might make the situation worse. Im about a month driving and parking is really tough for me.. thats where i got it. i'm really glad you were able to reply...i appreciate it!

    It is bad to park your car a far distance in a parking lot. It can discreetly and easily be stolen or broken into.

    Chris, I could freaking hug you right now!!! I have watched your channel for awhile now, and have followed some of your advice, but I had to pop on here and thank you for all these videos, especially this one. I saved for 2 1/2 years to buy a brand new vehicle in cash, and have tried to be as gentle as possible to her. I was so mad at myself for managing to hit a shopping cart in the middle of a parking lot. Just when I thought I was going to have to live with the blemish and maybe try buffing it out, I stumble upon your vid. Followed the directions to the letter, came out perfect!!!! I cannot thank you enough, and I am so happy right now.

    Lacquer Thinner will take the transferred paint off in a heartbeat! As long as the cars paint is original or has been professionally repainted this won't harm the finish. Use some common sense when doing this. Take a soft cloth or paper towel and wet it with the thinner (NOT DRIPPING WET ! )Just moisten the cloth or paper towel well and then wipe over the area with light pressure. It will remove paint transfer and scuff marks. Do this outside and dispose of the cloth/paper towel in outdoor garbage can! Then buff the area with some compound because there is likely damage to the paint underneath the transfer. May not all buff out but should improve it.

    Hey friends ... I love love love Mr. Eraser ... I use it for everything when I can't removed a mark: walls, switch plates, stainless steel fridge, all kinds of car stuff. One drawback is it gets easily wrecked, just all dirty and smashed up, so what I do is cut it into a piece that matched the task, because the power of the spongey part is right under your fingertips so I make strips, squares, even 1" square, cut in half or quarters, etc. etc. The rest stays in my cabinet in perfect condition. There is no product that matches this one, the pores are so small that it gives you the best chance of removing a stubborn mark. I think it was developed for NASA use, but anyway just sharing.

Just 10 minutes ago I was at the carwash and I bumped into one of those yellow poles and I had yellow paint transfer on my white car and I just followed this video and it came right off like it never even happened. You're a real headache savor.
