Default Lightly scraped one of my rims...

So, I was pulling up to the curb this morning to park, got a little to close and light scraped my r/f rim. It isn't a gash, but I notice it.

I don't want to get the rim re-finished or anything like that, but was wondering if there is anything I can get to use on it to smooth it out, like sand paper or something?

Or should I just Let it Be?

If it is painted or clearcoated leave it alone, sanding will only remove more clearcoat or can probably touch it up...if plain metal, you might be able to sand and buff a bit depending on the depth.

I found a great site for any detailing / paint repair advice. Check out

Lot of work, but effective (until the next time it happens).
