1st pic - use some bondo, fill the crack / hole. Sand it even and then paint over it. I patched a whole in my lip about 3" wide and 1" tall with bondo.

2nd pic - same as first

3rd pic - a damn good wax job. OR if your brave enough, wet sand it and re-paint if necessary.

wax job didn't work. I've tried so many fuckign times. Got the special wax and that lipstick look alike stuff to try to fill it in. Just a fucking pain in the ass. Fucking key mark goes all the way down from front quarter panel and stops right before the tail lights.

Hvae to try that bondo stuff for sure...hopefully i can get it to turn out alright

dont use bondo on plastic.
there is a plastic repair kit you can get from wal mart and it will do the job and still be flixible. you might even want to mold it back together with a lighter or a torch before you fix the crack.
the second one, you can bondo, but make sure to sand the s**t out of it first.
you can wet sand the third one, or take it to get the whole car detailed, you would be real suprised what a good detail shop can do on a key mark

holy s**t dude ur paint is hell :shock:.

i had a key mark like that. started at the beginning of my driver side door and went all the way to the gas cap. waxing didnt work cuz it went all the way down to the metal. then i got into an accident which was the other persons fault and they just so happen to replace everything to get rid of the key mark :lol:.

but if waxin dont work, wouldnt bondo be the option as shorty mentioned like the other 2 problems?

Actually the paint and body are in really good sshape. The only bad spot is by the front fender, and the keymark of course. it's just really dirty right now, so looks like s**t and that flaky spot...fuuuuuuuuuuuuck looks terrible, but ti's not noticable unless you're up close

i was out crusin' on some dirt roads last night in the wee hours of the morning, so she's a fucking mess

I'm a Canuck

East Coast...Moncton, New Brunswick

so what you're saying is drive straight through 4 sets of lights, turn right, hit the next left and it's just up the road? :P

I do appreciate the offer though

Nope that's a stock bumber. I cut out the inside of it and had that mesh s**t in there. Friend of mine backed into me, cracked the bumper and the type R grill that I had. Took the top type R off put stock back, and took the bottom mesh grill s**t off, cause it started to tear from where the bumper cracked.

Tip 1: Get some shorts that reach your knees.

Tip 2: File that chip down , file it, prime it, and paint it.

Tip 3: get a plastic repair kit at a variety store (ie target, walmart, kmart). take the lip off, weld the crack together from behind, and use the plastic kit filler to repair the front.

Tip 4: get the car detailed to get out the scratch. if it is deep, your not gonna be able to buff it out and need to get it painted.

You don't like my sexy legs??? Actually jus so you know those are basketball shorts that come down way below my knees, just the way i was crouched to take the pic...

I've got some stuff on the way now, my cousin, just rebuilt an 81 Tansam, it's in immaculate condition, and he's getting me some stuff to redo it, which i'll prolly do next weekend since it's raining now. I'll be sure to post lost of pics

Paint job is coming too, prolly some sort of black and pearl colour i'm thinking...
