Scuffs on door panels
 
Have you guys found a way to prevent scuffs other than not hitting your shoes on the door panel and then is there a product out there that lessens the appearance of them. Im particular about my jeep and can't control other peoples shoes. haha

Thanks

The only advice I can give is tell them not to let their shoes hit the panels. I'm also interested in a product for making the black trim black again. I've used a product called Black Again but it's not working for a scuff I have on the plastic around the fender.

I hit my drivers door below the cup holder half the time. A friend has a KIA Sportage. and has a carpet matching piece that is form fitted his door to prevent this he got from a Kia site. I haven't seen one for the JGC though.http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o...Rear20Door.jpg

Are you talking about the plastic trim around the wheel wells? If so, a replacement piece is cheap! I just replaced the fender flair (wheel-well trim) on the rear passenger side for less than $25. I was shocked that a trim part for a new vehicle was this inexpensive. If this is your need, don't buy the plastic pop-rivets from the dealership. Buy the riveting kit from Harbor-Freight for $15. It comes with the tool and a bag of the rivets.

If this is not your issue, never mind....:o

use a good protectant from our vendor detailedimage. They have some very good interior detail products that will help prevent scuffs etc. if applied ever so often

Any recommendations Scott? I have head a lot about 303 products but have no experience in this.

I'm not a Meg's fanboy, but I do really like their Ultimate Protectant for exterior trim. 303 looks nice -- until it rains or gets wet. The Ultimate Protectant I use is in the liquid-paste form (not spray). I prefer Surf City Dash Away for cleaning plastic/vinyl trim (and interiors). I've also read a lot of good things about Poorboys Trim Restore, Ultima, etc. Your options are almost endless if you want to go mail order. A cleaner/protectant won't cure/fix a scratch though.

Try and Mr. Clean magic eraser they get rid of most of the scuff marks on my lower door panels and kick panels.

Yes. Thanks for that information. I got it fixed though. I used something called Nu-Vinyl and it worked perfectly.
