    Oops, caught the neighbours bumper on his van with the back corner of the motorhome. Luckily no major damage just black scuffs and bit of a scratch. Anyone know what's best to use to try to get rid of black marks? Luckily the neighbour couldn't establish what was old/new damage to his van and was very nice about it...phew!

    I would guess the black mark maybe rubber off some part of your bumper, that will virtually rub off with your finger

    Not so sure about the scratch though, would have been T cut a few ago, not sure if still made or works on modern paints

    good luck though, any mark on your MH? need a good scratch repairer myself o_O

    The black marks and scratch are on the motorhome, sorry I didn't make that very clear. The neighbours van isn't too bad luckily. Motorhome is only 2 months old...oops!

    Black scuffs on paint should come off with a cloth and WD 40 unless they are in deepish scratch marks
    Bit of wax on the paint after cleaning.

    I have used Silky paste in the past and also something called Pampervan. The silky is probably the best but would recommend a bit of polishing after.

    T-Cut will do it.. But don't rub too hard. Then wax polish AFTER you have rinsed off the
    T-Cut.
