Scratched Shadowline Trim

So a buddy of mine runs into my office to let me know that some worker spilled a little paint on my car and wiped it off using his workman's glove. I rush out to find that the shadowline trim and a bit of the front passenger door is pretty scratched up.

I don't have any good pictures of it yet to upload, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the standard procedure is to repair the trim?

Did a quick search on the forum and didn't see anything about scratched trim.

Clay off any paint left over and then polish the trim as if it was a painted surface. If you need to buy polish I would go with meguiars 105 and 205

Interesting. My detailing supplies came in recently, including Megs 105/205.

Thanks. I'll still try to post pictures. I moved recently and canceled my appointment with my internet guy to go to the track. Gotta wait until Monday.

Try the M205 first a 12/10 (M105) polish may be too abrasive

Just tried this product last month and it works great! Hopefully, it will fix your issue.

Yep, I polish my door trim all the time. Apparently people can't close my doors without getting their grubby mitts all over it.
