OMFG! Need Advice

<A HREF="http://img4.imageshack.us/my.php?image=0604090907.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/4180/0604090907.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>Scrape is on the passenger side rear bumper. The very bottom of the fender right above the bumper has a "slight" indentation to it with the paint taken off.<p>The guy I was driving in with got behind me to back me up and kept telling me "you're fine keep backing up"and then this happens a split second later. Right into the side of a steel cabinet.<p>I live in Staten Island, NY. My question is does anyone have a place that they go to and/or trust to do good body work. I am very short on funds right now as buying the car have pretty much wiped me out. I would like to try and get it buffed out as much as possible and the paint touched up just so it doesnt rust. Down the line I'll get it fixed "the right way" when I add more scratches to the car and have more money in my pocket.<p>Thanks for the help.<p><A HREF="http://img194.imageshack.us/my.php?image=downsized0604090908.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/1025/downsized0604090908.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br>this is the cabinet <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Joe

leave it the way it is...it's not that bad. Cars get scraped all the time. Some of it will buff out...put some wax on it and it will darken

Re: (MancUnited1)

If you really want it fixed, I'm sure you can find a auto detailer that you can give some touch-up paint to and they will buff it out as well.

Damn. That happened to me with a Chrysler I owned last century. That sucks.
