Does anyone have any inputs on how to buffup or remove scratches on the body that were created (by some jerk) in the parking lot with a key or a sharp object? Thanks, Honey

Sorry no suggestions, but I know how you feel. It took 2 f@#&%^g days for some pencil dick to do a similar thing to the 318 I bought here in Australia!

if they are not through to primer, try the coloured waxes. also, if metallic it will look like crap no matter what.

If the scratches are not full thickness and down to primer or metal a polish with a little cutter in will help. In the UK we use Autoglym Super Resin. It is a great polish with cutter, but not as nasty to your paint as T-Cut. It will take some rubbing, but will make a fantastic improvement.

in the Uk we have body shops that charge a fortune to respray it

BUT we also have companies like dentmaster or oops or similiar that will repair small scratchs and dents for a much smaller price,,,do you have anything like this??

i have found that the colour waxs just colour your hands and not much else

also we have scratch remover paste,,,but its really similiar to t-cut

and t-cut is only as bad as the pressure you put on
ie rub a lot,,,and a lot comes off,,get my meaning???

try the t-cut 1st



ps sorry about the scratches,,,,i hate the buggers that do that sort of thing....normally some un pleasant oik with no brain no money and no standards and no job

if the scratches are light and not cut deep, then Meguiar's scratch-x seems to work pretty well.
