>driving home 8pm after working out, super exhausted
>suddenly hear and feel the car shake rapidly just as i was taking off
>didn't think much of it until next day
>shoe marks on my bumper in dirt, and gloss is gone approximately width=2" height.5in though not showing metal=no rusting
Question is, what should i do? Get special apply it yourself paint? Approach police? Ignore?
Approach insurance? I have a deductible set at 300 for vandalism, so i doubt unless they have to replace the entire back door.

I would definitely report it to the police. The best thing you can do is let them know because if there is a problem in that area they can start patrolling it more.
Maybe they will find out who did this? Then at least you know who you can go after for help with paying for repairs.
You have a few options, maybe go out and see how much it will cost to fix it. If it costs more than what you were expecting, you can try and put it through insurance. If it's less, you can always cover it yourself.

Report it to the police so they know it happened.
Don't go through insurance, talk to a paint repair place or get a touch-up stick. It is not worth going through insurance and having a claim on your record (and you are held responsible for all claims where the identify of the third party is not known)
A few weeks before I was due to sell my car, a co-worker doored it by mistake. He got some kind of paint repair kit and spent a few hours furiously working away. The marks were gone by the time he was done.0
