    Trying to cover up a scratch the best i can?

    As title says, its a key scratch down my passenger door that you can get your nail inside so its pretty deep. I have used black tcut after i washed it and it does hide it quite well but if you stand close or at a different angle it sticks out. just wondering if anyone has any suggestions and i will get a decent pic up asap! thanks

    Try and use the paint colour for the car on the end of a pin to fill in the line, then flatten back down to the level of the paint originally. might hide it a bit better

    2 choices really

    1st being if you want it looking perfect a respray is the only way as you can get your nail in it so it is quite deep .

    2nd being is to get someone in the know with a machine polisher and give it a good once over , doing this rounds the edges of the scratch which makes it blend in more so harder to see followed up with a polish that contains fillers like SRP .

    to passers by they won`t see it but you knowing it`s there you`ll see it evertime you look at it

    looking at the pic i think machine polishing would be worth a try but make sure it`s someone who knows what they`re doing as a novice could make things worse
