    scuffs, scratches and swirls

    somedays i feel as if my car is full of promise, i think that over the years i can make something nice of it but then theres days like today.

    i found a brand new scratch mark on the back bumber...looks like some **** hasnt been able to estimate the size of his car and has scrubbed past it whilst getting out from behind me.

    theres scuffs on there rear arches due to parking on corners and people hitting it.

    im going to wash it tommorow and t cut it see if that makes me feel better....can i just apply the normal t cut u get from halfords...its metalic black i think the colours called sapphire black.

    Try Maguires scratch X.

    I was Autoglym only until i tryed the Maguires products. They make Autoglym look useless, the depth of the shine and the reflections you have after using macguires is very impressive. They have a product called Scratch X which allowed me to hide some scratches that showed the under coat.
