    Been working on that huge scratch on my car

    Decided to see for kicks if I could polish some of it out...

    Went from this:



    To this:



    Dead chuffed I reckon I might be able to just polish it out now without a respray. Will try later and post the results.

    Good result so far, but i very much doubt you will be able to complete remove the scratch with out a respray.

    When i get a vehicle come into work with a scratch a work to a rule that if it catches your nail (providing its not wide one etc) then chances are you wont make it disapear 100%. If you have access to a mop and some compound you may get alot more of that out.

    Good effort so far

    As said good work looking A LOT better than it was! What did you use to get the scratch from the way it was to that mate?(see you said polish but what kind T-Cut,Megs etc etc?) Just got a couple of scratches I could do with trying to get rid off I know they'll polish out they're not as deep as them and as said you've done a good job on hiding them from what they were I was gonna T-Cut mine then use Megs Scratch remover and polish???
