That car never hurt anyone. Why people do this blows my mind. I don't see that buffing out man. If painted it most likely won't match that drivers side fender either. So it's going to be costly to get it right or it's going to be cheap but be obvious it was painted.
If it goes into the paint it needs to be repainted. If it's just the clear, which it looks like from the pix.
Wet sand with 1500 then 2000. Polish with a 3 stage compound system and it will look better then factory.
I'll try that. I don't have a DA just those that you plug into the drill but I'll give it a shot. I told her to try and file an insurance claim and see if getting the cops involved would help but she's a little hesitant
