    Scratches

    i have a couple of scratches on my bonnet and a couple of marks where the inconsiderate people hit your door with theirs in car parks.

    what would be the best way/product to remove these with out a machine polisher.

    i was looking at

    Any recomendations?

    Cheers

    Rubbing compound would probably do the trick n a touch up stick! They deep scratches or light?

    that stuff needs a machine. you wont be able to break down the abrasives by hand. either get a machine or use a heavy filler polish like srp.
