    Polish. Do not use t-cut.

    If you're not familiar with machine polishing, I'd advice Auto Glym Super Resin Polish, also commonly referred to as AG SRP.

    Available from most goods motor spares, or online, at www.cleanyourcar.co.uk

    Would recommend applying it thinly with a foam applicator pad (applying more pressure over the deeper, more defined scratches), leaving it to dry to a haze, and then lightly buffing off with a Microfibre.

    I would try the above and as mentioned avoid the T cut.

    Find someone local to you with a rotary and donate some beer tokens for them to polish them out! super resin polish does not have a massive amount of cut, but on the other hand has fillers, You might find it looks awsome but after a period of time you may see the marks come back. This will be it wearing off. If its a small area try thr SRP on a foam pad, really work it in like your a polish machine to get the best out of the cut.

    Dont forget to wax or seal after!

    Where you from by the way?
