Scratch X is goods stuff

Maguires Scratch X is the best stuff ever, it worked perfectly on my black car, the cats in my neighbor hood would climb onto my car when its warm at night, and then because its so slick from the wax they would try to dig their nails into the paint and so i had long scratch marks on the hood of my car, used the scratch x and it took it all way.

Yea, I agree about the 'minor' scratchs. You really arent going to be taking out any swirl marks with that stuff. I haven't really found anything that takes out swirl marks by hand. I need a buffer but am scared to use one.

I have a few cats that do that in my neighborhood too. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG] I've tried the Scratch X but doesnt seem to work. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

This thread deserves to go back up... I used the GS27 stuff from the TV ads and just about all it did to my scratches was make a hazy cloud around them. I then shell out the money for a tube of Meguiar's Scratch-X ($7something at target) and work over the same places I made worse with the GS27. The deep scratches were still there of course, this is no sandpaper, but all the small ones magically disappeared. Plus the ugly haze from the GS27 went completely away and looks shinier than new. My trunk now looks amazing! Use it like wax- rub it on, wait a few minutes and then wipe it off.

Oh and be careful what you set on your trunk lid

That is so true, I was cleaning the car, i just got a bottle of meguars quick wax to try it out and i put it on my trunk right after i waxed it.. it started slidign down and it actually made really little scratches. i'm a real moron. I guess the StratchX is the next step [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

Do you think it would work as good on a red car? Also, how long does it last before it wears off and you can see the scratches again, because i've used some stuff before that covers the scratches good for about two weeks and then it's back to the way it was before.

Bethany, I have a EBP car and I just used it today...it worked great, so it should work ok for you. I know what you are talking about when u say that the stuff wears off...basically once you get the car all shined up using ANY wax, you don't really see the scratches...but once it gets washed or if you have been driving in the rain, that is when it wears off....it is almost like the oils in the wax get washed away...weird!

I am sorry, IMO it did work that well for my car. It must just be me, I even used some 3m swirl mark remover for dark cars and got not so good results. If it worked for you guys..awesome!

If you can feel the scratch with your fingers, its not really going to be helped by the Scratch X. My bro had the same prob on his gas tank door and he was saying it didn't help..I felt the scratch and you could feel it, therefore, Scratch X could not help...
