Came out to the car for lunch, and something caught my eye. There aren't many things that make me want to cut off someone's balls, but this comes very close:

Scratch-X saves the day Rivscratch1

I was so mad, I wanted to kick something! shout Had a tube of Scratch-X and cloths in the trunk, and after 20 minutes of hard rubbing, it got better, but it's still not perfect:

Scratch-X saves the day Rivscratch2

I think I can persuade the remainder to rub out with a buffer, just glad most if the damage isn't permanent. Scratch-X is a great product that has saved me more than a few times. It doesn't work miracles, but it does what it's supposed to.

Pick it up at any auto parts store. It's by Meguiar's, one color fits all. Here's a link: http://www.meguiars.com/?auto-paint-cleaners/ScratchX

Works great on scratched CDs too!

i've used that stuff like that before on girls car when the hit something, and it take the paint scratches out 90% of the time. works best with a wax applicator pad wink i prefer the 3M rubbing compound(works much faster)
sorry it happen but the bright side is you got it out and there is no dent! i had a baseball size dent the other week but luckily it was in the rear 1/4 panel and i got it poped out from inside the trunk. i cracked the clear coat just a little b/c i didnt have a rubber mallet, but only i know its there.

I'll have to try some of that. The spot where the brach fell on my car still has an abrassion (sp?) look. This should work well.

I bought some stuff in an orange container before and it looked like it worked then when the area dried it was noticable again. Not good at all frown

Oh and forget those stupid crayon jobbies, they suck ass. Before I got the car painted I had huge deep scratches on the mirror from the previous owner. My dad had some paint crayons for cars. He has a mack so it worked well with the red. I used the dark green on the dark teal car and it was more noticable than with the plain scratch. Very greasy too.

Rubbing compound can leave scratches in the clear coat.

Scratch X works well with an applicator pad or even better with a dual action polisher.

It uses diminishing abrasives to safely remove fine scratches, swirls, and oxidation. As you work ScratchX into the surface of your vehicle, the abrasives diminish and your paint surface is polished to reveal brilliant color and clarity. Clear coat safe, ScratchX will not create new scratches.
