Scuffed Up Door Panel

I know this is minor, but seems like every car I get this area always gets scuffed up right below th speaker (Black is probably the worst). Does anyone do anything to prevent this?

Re: Scuffed Up Door Panel

Make a point to open the door all the way when getting in and out, or at least as far as you can.

That's a good point, unfortunately it's the passenger side that get's scuffed up the most, so harder to control that. This must be a problem for most, I'm surprised manufacturer's haven't put a scuff proff material there.

GM used to carpet the lower portion on many vehicles.

Yeah, I considered a strip cut from stick-on carpet for that area, but the family design coordinator pretty much shot that idea down.
What we need is a holder that could carry replaceable scuff plates or carpet, with the ability to use either in any given vehicle.

You better get your monitor calibrated ... that's Maximum Steel!

Yeah, the indigo panels scuff just like black. The only color I ever had that made the scuff marks less noticeable is grey.

LOL, sorry 'bout that. Maybe I'll put some velcro there to cover it up and stick various things there, what I have no idea.

Re: Scuffed Up Door Panel

Look up correcting it with a heat gun....it works great. Back to black also works decent.
