Scratches

I got some scratches on my car some are very light. There is one long one where my neighborhood bitch thought my car was my neighbors car and took a key to it. I can't prove it was her but I know it was and so does everyone else because she was seen by my car, plus she keyed my neighbors sisters' car too. Anyways the key one isn't too deep but it's not light. I also got a brand new scratch today because a rock hit my car giving me a lovely scrap on my driver side door. That one is pretty deep it took some paint off. Just wondering whats the best way or best thing to try before I have to take it to a shop and have it redone.

Thanks

Marques

Re: Scratches

The ones that are just on the surface you can buff out..but the others where paint is missing you need to get some touch up paint for..

Re: Scratches

i saw on a site this guy used leftover paint from your car body and applied it w/ this prod to restore it w/out getting any touch up paint... its like a cheap do it yourself thingy, it came out clean giving he keyed it own car to show us how it works... i can find the link, just gotta give me a moment... but touch up paint would do great, just gotta clean and buffer it afterwards so it wont stand out...

good luck w/ that man... and get a car cover or somethign so that bitch wont scratch your car anymore.... haha... damn crazy bitch..

Re: Scratches

That's the first I have ever heard of getting touch up paint. That would have been nice.

Re: Scratches

I got a bottle of touch up paint with my 02 ex, just dont know how to use it without making the repair look worse than the damage. I have got probably the worst scratch anyone has ever seen all down the passenger side of my car...
