I got too close to a post under my carport, and scuffed the side of our blue Escape with white paint from the post.
I tried to clean it up with rubbing compound, but that accomplished nothing.
These pics are how it looks right now. The close-up reflection is of grass & shrubs next to the driveway.
What else can I do that doesn't cost a ton of money? We intend to trade it in, because we found out it's full of rust underneath. Which must be why we got a good deal on it to begin with. I know, I should have checked it out, but we needed something in a hurry after someone ran a red light and totalled my wife's Civic.

Bug begone may loosen the paint and leave the paint on the car alone.

Thanks for the idea. I had some Gunk Bug & Tar Remover, so I tried that. But it didn't work.

Drop by a detailer or paint shop, they can use a power buffer with a slight abrasive, then wax the area to clean up.

Shouldn't take a lot of time / money. I've seen some use acetone to remove paint scuffs.
