    Default Another scratch on bodywork, grrrrr

    Just left my car today for 15 mins at the Lidl's parking and that's what I found when I got back People just don't respect the fact that you may take care of your car, they open door without looking how close is the next car. This can be a shopping cart hit. Sooooo angry, what can I do with this??

    Depends how deep it is. A decent machine polisher will be able to mask it a lotbut it will still be there if it's gone through the clear.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I doubt if anybody tells me what exactly happened. So looks like it's just my problem :/

    I'm not a specialist in bodywork and lacquer but the scratch seems to be quite deep

    I didn't notice any so I could only rely on people but nobody seen anything of course...

    If you can catch your fingernail in the scratch, it will need paint fella

    That doesn't sound nice Nick, but that's what I've been affraid of. That's a huge element. But I think I'll have to make a decent polishing before I think about more expensive solutions.

    Dont halfords do a scratch repair service?

    dont know the prices but it might be worth a phone call.

    It's gotta be cheaper than doing the whole panel
