New - just signed up to hopefully get some advice. I have a 2002 Silver MitsuEclipse GS - Within the last 6 hours, I was side swiped by a gigantic tired dump truck. I have side (tire) marks in the plastic behind the rear left wheel, a few scratches across the paint, and a small dent below the mid part of the car (again more towards the plastic, not the metal portion of the rear panel).

I plan to soapy water it up tonight to get off all the tire crap and see what's left. It's pretty easy to tell the paint was compromised though.

Is is worth going the sand / buffer / rubbing compound / polishing compound direction? Anyone had any experience in this department? Any information is much appreciated, link to 'damage' below.
