    More and More.... Scratches

    Most of you love to take care of your cars and know where every scratch and imperfection is. It seems lately that I've noticed that my car is getting an increasing number of scratches! It could be down to the neighbor I'm having a nightmare with over parking. I cant prove it either, not only that it seems like the car is getting covered in cat claw scratches as well, which is frustrating to say the least.
    Either that or it is people using the alleyway I park in as a shortcut, even though halfway along its gated off

    Sorry for the rant, I'm just so frustrated that my pride and joy is getting so covered in scratches its almost white!

    And as much as I would love a respray I cant afford one

    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    Lol, dont need to worry about a .22 rifle, got a Weihrauch HW97K in my room and a couple of others as well. Was looking at a pistol crossbow as well the other day.

    Was considering seeing how much a partial respray was, get the worst bits put right, mainly the roof at the moment and the sides

    alot of the scratches are right down to the primer mate, I dont think T-Cut would help, just make it worse

    other than t-cut
    wot about touch up stick and rubbing compound to blend it but use a sponge rather than the little paint brush in the stick.

    To be honest forget doing anything about it. Anything you do will be a waste of money as people will just scratch it again without caring.
