    Hi guys:

    loving my MX. I've had it about 5 months and driven it for more than 6 thousands miles. somehow managed to escape any scuffs or marks to the car.

    then last week happened. an errant shopping cart struck my car along the rear passenger side and scratched the black portion of the trim around passenger side rear wheel. and then my family driving car, backing up scratched up front part of the car. all within 2 days time span.

    anyone know of any ways to fix the scuff marks on black trim?

    Thanks

    No!!!! You can get new trim pieces from Service Center. Should be less than $200 total. Let us know.

    In the mean time, get some tire and rubber coating and out on top. May help. Here is a link to a great one: https://www.amazon.com/Chemical-Guys-TVD_107_16-Plastic-Dressing/dp/B00FJIT9BO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1506981486&sr=8-1&keywords=chemical+guys+vrt

    You can use these applicators: https://www.amazon.com/Chemical-Guys-ACC_3002-Contoured-Applicator/dp/B00BJCHTFW/ref=pd_bxgy_263_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00BJCHTFW&pd_rd_r=7QHACZGH71JBS45TNNWX&pd_rd_w=z9Ik2&pd_rd_wg=62CSr&psc=1&refRID=7QHACZGH71JBS45TNNWX

    I use this to restore and protect my trim. It also makes it darker. It looks great. You can use for tires too.
