Thumbs up Removing "other cars" paint and fine scratches after being sideswiped in lot...

Last week i walked out of my office to find my rear drivers side quarter panel all scratched up and lots of white paint streaks on it (it's a dark grey car). Not much damage, just lots of paint transfer and scratches. After reading the interwebz, i decided to try Meguiars scratch x 2.0 .

Scratch X + microfiber pad + a little elbow grease is all that was needed. It worked phenomenally well! It removed 90% of all the white paint and cleared up some of the fine scratches. It's not perfect, but it worked enough so i don't have to repaint the bumper/panel.

I touched up a few spots where paint came off the car and applied wax after and the car looks pretty damn good considering how bad it was.

I thought i had taken 'before' photos earlier, but i can't find them. so i only have the 'after' photos. Fail, i know. Just imagine a LOT of very large white streaks and scratches all over that rear quarter. it was a mess and i was afraid i wouldn't be able to fix it. But it came out damn good... not perfect, but good enough:
