Re: Best fne scratch remover for black

its not too hard.. i did my truck with a buddie of mine. just very time consuming.

can the scratches grab your fingernail as you lightly run it across the scratch?

No there is a couple but most it just looks like someone washed it with a dirty mitt.

Re: Best fne scratch remover for black

look on youtube on how to polish a vehicle with a polisher. its not hard. only issue is with it being black u will have to cut finer the n polish and go to glaze. if it was a white truck. u could stop at polish.

then if any spots are still there just hit thoes spots with compund...ect, not the whole truck again

Compound, swirl remover, polish, glaze, wax, and then I like to throw a coat of Nu-Finish on for durability.

Re: Best fne scratch remover for black

i love griots garage polish set up they have machine polishes 1-4 and they work awesome. i clay, polish 1-4, best of show wax, and paint sealant. its a very long process but well worth it, i do the polishes once and year and clay, wax, paint sealant twice a year. its a great arm work out taking it off! i apply with a porter cable random orbital. call the guys at griots garage im sure they will be happy to give u extremely profession advice.(be careful dont burn up the paint with sitting in one spot) griots offers a Polishing and Waxing book that is a wonderful read with pictures to haha

Re: Best fne scratch remover for black

Turtle wax and a light buff works best for me, just rub in the wax and lightly buff off. Turtle wax seem to be pretty durable too.

Try using Megs Ultimate compound and light polish pads. It will surely tackle those light to heavy scratches.
