Inexpensive removal of red paint mark from a Ford Escape bumper before and after pics

If you have ever had a parking lot mishap like this, you probably think its a trip to the body shop. The cost is on you because of your deductible. If you have a tube of Wenol polish around, why not try it?  You really can’t make it any worse, you were going to take it to the body shop guy anyway. So we started by doing a quick wash on this section of the car to get off the road dirt and grime. Then applied a little dab of Wenol polish onto a paper towel and rubbed it on the red paint transfer marks. We tried to keep right directly on the paint marks that were transferred as all we wanted to accomplish was to take off the marks to make it look better. You will need to apply some pressure to get the marks to lift, but Wenol did it for us. It took us about 10 minutes to get the bumper looking like it did in the middle picture. The red you see in the bottom of the bumper in that  picture is just the reflection of the tube of Wenol in the polished bumper after we rubbed it down with a microfiber cloth. The black marks left on the bumper is where the original paint was removed by whatever had scraped the car. Those can be touched up to of course. You can go to YouTube and watch videos all day for tips on touch up paint. If you have some Wenol metal polish hanging around give it a try. A tube of Wenol costs some where around ten bucks depending on where you buy it.
