If the pumice in toothpaste can take the enamel off of your teeth it can handle a little scuff mark of paint on your mirror.

I had some buffing compound and I also had some extra-strength "Goo-Gone" so i went with that.

Which actually softened the plastic of the mirror body. Yeow!

But I did manage to get it looking reasonable. I guess now the mirror looks as old as the truck.

Some folks just won't listen ...

Buffing compound, by the way, is not the same as rubbing compound, and Goo-Gone, as you discovered, has some fairly strange solvents.

One feature I miss here that I enjoy in some other places is an "Interest" button/drop down.. Or alternative Ignore.

As with any forum there are topics that frankly.. DO NOT interest me.. And likely never will.. Now in a forum like this they are not as common as say some of the old Compuserve forums that I belong to.. but still the ability to mark them "not interested" would be nide, on the occasions where it happens.
