As we have spoken about many time mate,Newspaper is a great medium for weathering .it leaves a nice patina on the paint and give a very cool real world look.The other thing for thick scuff marks is the rubber trim from the lid.Just swipe it across here and there.

Pastels from the art shop are good for weathering as well, but newspaper is my favourite...

I'm going to try this tonight. How hard do you rub the newspaper?

Easiest way EVER:

Black chinagraph pencil.

Scribble a bit on there, rub it with a finger, and voila - instant weathering. Removable too. Worked a treat on my Biker, and will work on me Commander soon.
