    Default Minor scratch in laquer - removal

    Hi all,

    just wondered if anyone had any suggestions for removing minor scratches in lacquer coat. Try to keep my car pristine, and totally *** off to find a series of minor scrtches on the top of the front wing, after leaving it in public car park. Looks to me like someones rested a bag or something on the wing whilst getting in their car or walking passed. Anyway, whatever the cause, I'm left with about half a dozen hair like sctaches, at different angles on top of the drivers side wing.

    I've had a quick go with Turtle Wax silver colour magic, which I had in from previous cars, which looks a bit better when first applied, but as paint dries, they just come back. Not sure about using anything any harsher. Bit worried about removing too much lacquer coat.

    Any suggestions for products or techniques would be appreciated. I'm pretty sure the sctaches are ony as deep as the lacquer coat. Thanks Ray.

    no need to worry Ray, i'm sure they will just polish out.

    but as for product and process i'm afraid i can't help, better to wait for one of our detailing residents to come and give you the best advice - possibly something like meguiars Scratch X.

    i've got one on the drivers side door so will be keeping an eye on this!!

    scratch x is a little harsh..... can leave a little marring, then it will look like you need to polish it.

    Try something like meguiars, step one of the deep crystal process(stages 1, 2, 3)Stage one should get it out, and a nice finish with stage 2
