    Default Paintwork scratches

    My Vectra is black and it has loads of small scratches in the paintwork. What would be the best thing to about this, is there any coloured wax or something I could use?

    Hi if you can feel the scratch with your nail you can't do anything to them but if they are fine scratches then you can buff them out with a polisher and cutting compond

    sorry but thats wrong, if you can feel them but they don't go down to primer you can wet sand with around 2000 grit wet and dry and then machine polish with compound
