Sleepyk Posted October 25, 2006 Share Posted October 25, 2006 Yesterday on the way home, my baby was assaulted by a flying foot-long piece of tire tread at freeway speeds. The errant tire tread struck the front bumper just to the right of the license plate. While the plastic bumper cover is not cracked, there are smears of rubber and gouges in the plastic (probably from the steel belts). I think the rubber will just buff out, but I don't know what to do about the gouges. As it stands now, I think that the pushed up part of the plastic gouges would completely destroy a foam pad if I tried to polish. I know the gouges are there to stay, but anyone have any ideas how I can "safely" remove the raised portions so I can polish the rest (have PC 7424) without difficulty? Or perhaps just choose an old pad and shred it? My wife thinks that I would have exploded when I saw the damage, but I'm really secretly glad that the tire didn't hit any sheet metal.
