    Default Rubbing Compound

    Anyone ever used this?

    It's been recommended by a mate at work for the scratches on the car, just wondered if it was worth trying as i'm planning a full day of detailing tomorrow

    Probably waaay too abrasive for general cleaning and polising, you'd be better claying, then using a good polish, then wax.

    I'm going to clay and wax the car as well, but ive got a couple of deep-ish scratches and a load of light scratches on the bonnet. I don't really want to get it resprayed but it looks quite bad imo.......

    Try Scratch X first, rubbing compound would be a real last resort in my book, if at all. It's very easy to use it wrongly and make things worse.

    I've used G3 on scratches, not sure if this is classed as a rubbing compound, but I wouldn't want anything more abrasive. Works pretty well I've found!!!
