    Default Light scratch - help

    What do you guys recommend for light scratches ? Can't feel anything when i run my finger nail over it ( bar one small part near the back door that i can just feel !)

    This is the drivers door area - scratch length ways

    You can still make part of it out when standing back (to right of door handle area)
    Anything available from halfrauds that i could get pronto & try ??

    I hate folk messing with my car At start of August i came back to a car park to find my car with a nasty crease in the wing No idea how it happened but i managed to find a PDR guy who worked his magic on it & now you cant tell a thing

    The scratch wasn't even there y'day, the only explanation i have is one of the many kids passing it last night on their rounds done it unintentionally !

    Cheers

    it will probably come out with a good cutting compound but would be better using a machine polisher. Try something like autoglym paint renovator first, see if that helps. Thats off the shelf so easy to find. After that there is a whole load of mail order type stuff you can try.

    The good rule of thumb is, if you can feel the scratch with your finger nail, it wont come out by hand polishing, and will need cutting back with wet and dry and machine polishing. A pro job.

    Got Autoglym Paint Renovator & used that on it, then used some Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine to polish it up by hand. Turned out pretty well !!
