I have several minor scratches around the car (titanium silver) and am wondering how best to remove them. A friend of mine advised that you should not T-cut a car that is only 2 years old - In that case, how the hell can you remove these scratches without T-cutting them out?? Has anybody got any suggestions or recommendations of any cleaning solutions that can be used. used

T cut will only clear very minor scratches. Don't worry about using T cut as half the time it just applies polish with only the slightest abrasive effect on the paint. Don't Tcut it more than 4 times per year and you'll be grand!

Cutting paste will get rid of deeper ones.

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

It is a slightly abrasive polish.

Apply it thick and wet..... it dries cloudy and then buff it off. It leave your car protected and shiney.

It isn't the best polish about though and can be difficult to get a smooth and smear free appliaction.

It's handy for parts like the door handle area which get slightly worn over time from use.
