    Scratches on my door!

    This has been a pretty rough winter in Northeast Ohio, along with many other parts of the country. It's not only taken it's toll on me, but also on the REX. I now have a couple of scratches on my passenger side door due to driving in the curb lane and getting stuck between a giant SUV that couldn't stay in his lane and a hard, icy snow bank overflowing off the edge of the sidewalk. Horrible experience.

    I know nothing of body work and repair dents or scratches, so please, for those of you who do know a little something, help me out here. Is this bad? Can it just be "buffed" out by a detailer or do I need to take more extensive steps to fix this?

    This 2011 WRX is leased, with one year left to go. I have kept it in impeccable condition with very low mileage and it was my intention to buy it out, sell for a profit, and get a new one. Obviously, this complicates matters. Please, any advice is welcomed and appreciated. And forgive the horrible water marks all over, I need a wash! Thanks!

    I would wash the water marks\dust off first.

    Then, try some rubbing compound from Mequiars. I know I didn't spell it right, but I have used it on a few vehicles with good to great results. Depending on the scratch, or marks, I was able to subdue the appearance, or totally remove the damage.

    If that doesn't take care of it, then other measures will be required.
