'Superficial scratches'

Postby dimexi » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:23 pm

Hey guys, I have a few minor scratches on my door panel, they're not deep at all. Can you advise on a method to get rid of them?
Thanks

Polish them out with a mild cutting Polish. Plenty of information on detailingworld.com

Polisher and compound and refinement... or take it to a detailer or have a friend who knows what they're doing take a look.

Can you feel/catch them with your nail?

If you can they aren't going to polish them out. You can make them less visible but they'll always be there unless you paint the panel.

Thanks for the replies guys! much appreciated.. I cant catch them with a nail, so I think it will polish out like Bob and Jay say.. Will look into it - they look pretty annoying so quite keen to get rid
