Anyone had similar damage to theirs yet? She got beaned by a tire that came off a trailer from the vehicle in front on the freeway!

Rub it with a microfiber towel with a dollop of Meguire's Scratch-X 2 on it...you'd be amazed how much of that will rub off.

i was going to say, that may just buff out. looks horrible though, must have really sucked when it happened. glad you're okay.

i scraped one of those yellow posts at the bank, and the body shop buffed it out. i thought for certain i'd need the quarter re-painted. (it was in fact, and old cutlass)

Hope the guy pulled over or you at least got his license plate?

Another PRIME example of what spending a few hundred dollars on a dash cam can save you. "Most" states have laws on not securing your load, makes it 100% fault of the driver that did not secure their load.
