The trim around my rear quarter window recently came into a disagreement with a pressure washer.
At the very least replacing the damaged part requires removing the entire rear quarter window, something which I am not too keen to jump straight in to. I'd much rather attempt to clean it up first and see how it looks.
I'm afraid I'm not too sure what material it is made from, it feels the same as the seals around the door just to the right of the damage. Normally I would refer to this as rubber, but I don't know if this is an accurate name for the material used.
It is soft to the touch, applying light pressure will cause it to flex inwards (elastically), and running my finger nail lightly across the surface will leave a small mark.
What compound/technique can I use to lessen the visual impact of the damage below?
