    Ok... so my driveway is a complete B!tch! to park in! i have to high walls either side and about 2 inches either side of my car!!
    this means i have to pull right out to the other side of the road to get my car in, and when theres traffic around this can be a bit time consuming!

    so last night there were 2 busses behind me and a lorry infront of me and i really did not want to be responsable for holding them up! so i took the turn at a tighter angle still taking it out wide and i have managed to scrape the paint back to bare metal on the passangers rear arch!

    now is there a cheap easy way that i can repair this myself to look like new or do i have to take it to a body shop?

    Thanks

    on a arch if you where to do yourself to have it looking good you would rpobly need to paint the full panel. a good sprayer will be able to do just the arch and you wouldnt tell mate. it wont be fortunes for it done maybe 100 or so
