I have a deep 4" long scratch on my bonnet, which I would like to sort today. I have used abrasive t-cut type stuff on it and although it is less noticeable, it is still blatantly there. Also - I'm not 100% sure if it has gone to the base coat as I imagine this would be a similar colour to my grey paint.
The car's colour is called Mirage, which is a light grey metallic. I have Scratch X and the correct colour touch up pen and lacquer (tested and passed for colour match).
The problem is - the touch up brush is wider than the scratch, so how I am to go about "filling" the scratch? I'm guessing paint across it and "spread" it into the scratch with my finger or similar - then polish away any excess with Scratch X or a clay bar once dry? Also, it I have managed to fill the scratch with base coat, how am I supposed to apply the lacquer?
If someone could let me know the best way, it would be a great help.
