Hi, I accidentally ran into another vehicle today. Here is the damage:

I don't want to spend big money on it, but I do want to make it look better. I am thinking about buying touch up paint and taking care of it myself.

Currently, I can't tell if the whitish blemish is due to another vehicle's paint or it's my exposed primer? Should I try to rub it out with alcohol first?

Thanks

Here's a closer up:

I just want to make the metallic paint look better...

I would try a wax/cleaner product on a microfiber pad either by hand or with an orbital polisher with a pad with a light cutting property.

I don't see any deep scratch so "It'll buff right out". :)

Buy some POLISHING (not RUBBING) compound at an autoparts store, use as directed.



Don't know if you could remove and pop that plastic cladding out using a heat gun from the inside????
