I accidently scraped the front of the car against the garage door frame yesterday. Now there are two considerably size paint marks on the car. What should I do to best remove it. I have some basics, clay bar, PC7336 with a few pads, menzerna IP, zaino ZPC, etc, please help!!

I'd try the clay first.

I would try a cleaner wax or polish or mild compound by hand.

You could try some solvents but it usually comes off with some elbow grease and mild compound.

It doesn't look too bad. You could try claying it but I don't think it would do too much really. Personally, I'd just hit it with a polishing pad and IP or some other comparatively mild polish.

Why clog up a $20+ piece of clay and potentially marr the finish more? Just wipe the paint transfer away with laquer thinner. It will take about 10 seconds and the only thing you'll maybe need to do after is wax it.

In addition to David's 10 second recommendation, Sprayway makes some wipes designed to remove graffiti. I recently used them to remove the spatter from a run over spray paint can. It worked very well for that even thought the paint had dried for some time. I just tried them on some paint transfer, similar to what you have, and it made quick work of it.
