    Took my girl out last night to a few places and this morning I notice this:

    WTF?

    Black paint. What should I use to try and get it off? Claybar? Magic Eraser?

    I've always had luck removing some minor scuffs with a finishing or polishing compound. It is much finer and less abrasive than rubbing compound.

    Doesn't look like it broke the paint, hopefully it rubs off.

    Thanks Ron I'll give that a shot if the claybar doesnt take care of it. Waiting on a few more cleaning products to come in so I'll probably just hold off until next weekend when I have time to give it a full bath / claybar / paint sealant.

    Do you just put that stuff on a microfiber towel and start buffing?

    Yep, doesn't look bad in the picture at all; more like a rub mark. No dent, right?

    Nope it looks like just a surface mark from what I can tell. Don't think it made a dent. May even try hitting it with some rubbing alcohol and a microfiber rag whenever I get the truck back from round 2 at bestbuy this afternoon.
