Default Need to remove a black spot on door...

I've been meaning to fix this for a long time now, but I lived in an apt complex and of course had trashy neighbors that would park next to me. One day I noticed a black 'smudge' spot on my door. I'm just about 100% sure that its where the side molding on their geo or w/e hit my car when they swung the door open.

My question is, what can I use to remove this spot? If the light is at a certain point, you can barely notice a difference where they hit it but mostly its just a little black smudge. Maybe a rubbing compound??

TIA!

A little compound might work. If you have never used some try nufinish scratch remover as its pretty much the lightest duty out there.

G'luck!

....a generally good, readily available product is Scratch-X from Meguiars:



I keep a tube of it in my car for spot fixing scratches, paint/plastic transfer, etc. It's mildy abrasive and can usually take of of most small issues I might run in to. I've used it more on friends/family cars than on my own while I'm out and about.

Cool cool. Thanks guys. I dont know much about this subject so I didnt want to get a compound and make it worse.

I'll check for Meguire's and Nufinish at the local auto parts store.

you can get them both at autozone, if you try both and they don't get the smudge off try a clay bar....

you can use a buffer as well, however if you have never used one before, be careful and take your time so that you don't burn your paint...
