I F'd UP

I was backing up the hay trailer in the dark and had the mirrors upward so i can see the bales as I drive, nonetheless i scratched the sh!t out of my door on a piece of machinery. Anyone have a good trick or am I going to have to get the door repainted? the real crummy part is I have a old graphic that goes across my door and the rest of my truck and I'm sure it would have to come off and leave the shadow... get what Im saying? Any suggestions would be appreciated and maybe help settle my stomach.

Depending on how deep the scratch is, wet sand and a buff might take it out if the scratch didn't go through the clear coat. Even if it did it should help out the look of it a little bit. Same being said about the graphic, if you do end up pulling it off you can buff out the shadows that were left there. Just be careful if you have never done it before, you can end up doing more harm then good and send that buffer straight through the clear if it sits to long in one spot. A few pics could help out a little bit for us to.

If it makes you feel any better I managed to blow off like a 4 square inch section of paint from my front number the other day with a power washer. Grabbed a spot of touch up paint and peeled it off and that took some factory paint along for the ride. Now there is a big black spot of primer on my bumper.

Bright side: you made it farther than most without denting/severely scratching your truck if you have steady used it to work and this is your first mishap. Bed, bumpers and roof on my truck look like I work it (which I do). It used to bother me, but the way I see it is my truck is a tool...and while I try to take care of my tools, I'm not going to lose sleep over a small dent.

Now when my wife backed her tiny diesel into my big diesel...that dent was SERIOUS

2005 F350 Lariat, DRW, CCLB, 6.0L, 6spd, 4x4 (all the normal stuff replaced, leaky head gaskets [again]...)

2006 F450 XL, DRW, RCNB (regular cab, no bed ), 6.0L, Auto, RWD. Stock head gaskets, stock bolts, running strong without a hint of puking.

2000 Excursion (project)

2001 TDI Jetta (wife's ride). Injectors. Still slow as molasses in winter.

How badly is it scratched? Any pictures? It could be as easy as wet sand and buff

Yeah, that sucks, sorry man. I'd say if you like the graphic, take some good photos of it, get some measurements and check with some vinyl graphics companies about having the reproduce it. If you've kept a good wax on the truck, I don't think you'd have a problem with the paint being a different shade behind the graphic.

That is quite a bit more than a SCRATCH. That is dented as well. You need body work and paint

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
