      I have some foam that I bought from McMaster Carr a couple of years ago to protect my car door when opening and have a little bit left, but it would be difficult to get it to adhere to the hinge areas. One of those pool foam pieces might be the best solution, thanks. How did you fasten it?
      This stuff is basically a slit pool noodle with double stick at the seam. I put it over the bar assembly that my opener uses to drag the door up/down.

      I'd go with a rubber bumper instead wherever it may hit on Garage Door & Wall.
      I think it'd be funny to take a picture of doing it the other way--attach the noodle to the hatch.
      LOL, I found this last night. Not a bad idea if you live in the city:

      Thank you, I'll keep that in mind. It might be better quality.

      This worked perfectly over the bar used to open the garage door, thank you! At least now I can open it when the door is closed. It hits the foam, but hopefully it won't scratch.

      No kidding. My brother lived in the big city many years ago, and he could have used those. The simple accepted fact is, you park by touch in a dense urban area. Some touches are harsher than others, some paints are weaker than others, etc, etc.
      If I lived in the city, I wouldn't even bother getting a new car.
