      I know we dont really beat anything at all, but I dont think I could let go for 20c on the river :)

      I might not c-bet this flop, its not that great. Especially against regulars. But if I do, I would c-bet bigger because I want him to think I'm protecting against flush. I would fire again on the turn as well, since the Q is more likely in my range than his and give up if he calls again.
      As played, I'm calling the river at least for info.

      Don't continuation bet. Think about this players calling range OOP? Probably broadways, small pairs, and suited connectors. This flop does well against his range and you can't represent anything. No pocket pair is folding on a flop like this, flush draws and straight draws are calling (which is bad if your objective is to make him fold because you need to double barrel to get him off these hands), a couple of over cards will probably call sometimes too, ESPECIALLY on these limits.

      Your problem wasn't cbetting too little, you cbet too much! After he doesn't fold pre I'd basically give up unless it's a good board to cbet or I hit something.

      I´d like to 2nd barrel there.
      Getting that pot odds, you should call river, even if you believe that you´re 100% behind, you want to know which hand he is playing that way.

      Your play there is standard and most of the players would put you on missed starting hands. So don´t really see how it could damage your table image or give a lot of information to the other players.
