Hi all

first post in this forum. might be a n00b question or not. but i have a few scratches on my car nothing major. I jus want to see what the opinion is on how to fix scratches... ?

or is the best way to take it to a detailer or someplace to get it resprayed... seems quite drastic for a scratch the barely 10cm long.

Hello and welcome to the forum :wave:

How deep is the scratch?
If it isn't deep, it might go away with some rubbing and a good rotating polishmachine.

um its not deep. its like a key scratch. but i didn do it so i dont know what was used to scratch it. but u see its right above the my boot badge ( i suspect someone was trying to pinch my badge), and i wanted to probably take both of them off as well... so jus wanted it nice and clean...

From my experience of the mobile scratch places I wouldnt bother. Save up a little longer and get the panel resprayed. The mobile plces do a fix which looks good short term, but after a few months they begin to discolour and stand out. Basically they are good for dealers wanting a cheap fix but not for the individual wanting a long term solution.
