As above. I have a couple of scratches on my car (black). What is the best thing to cover these up?

T-cut color fast my OH uses on our black car its from halfords but you probably can get it from other places,or you can get a lipstick thats designed to cover scratches theres loads of products out there.
if you can get hold of this product its really good the make is Farecla its wax top high gloss liquid wax polish its got a fine compound aswell as wax so gives a great shine most professionals use it.
Hope this helps:thumbsup:

That helps loads.

The Farecla looks really good but I am just trying to see if I can find anywhere that sells it individually....

Just did a Google search and I am slightly confused. It says it rubs off some of your paintwork to bring it down to its original colour...I cannot understand how that works!!

I think it sort of melts/blends your paint together.

If you know what I mean :-D

Yes, I understand now. :)

T cut is slightly abrasive so it will remove any lacquer on top of the paint.

If you are selling the car and want to hide the scratches then nail varnish is good....paint on and rub off when it goes tacky and it should leave the paint in the scratch. also felt tip pen works well.

it takes off the top layer with all the dirt and road tar in it...or if the paint has dulled in the sun T Cut will take the dull layer off and leave the paint underneath which will look fresh.

Not selling, only just purchased it so I want a good finish on it really...

I used to own a black car.

It never looked clean and showed up every mark.

Turtle wax Colour Magic Polish Black Halfords should sell it :thumbsup:

If I was you I would go to somewhere like Halfords ask their opinion on the best product for the scratch and then shop around for that product.

Good luck :thumbsup:

If you are keeping it then buy a black touch up kit from halfords. you get a little emery sponge to rub and clean the scratch, some paint (but I find the supplied brush to thick, so use a really thin paint brush), You also get some lacquer to put over the dried paint....it's not easy to get a good finish though.

You'd be better getting a SMART Repair company to do them for about £50....They come to you and use an airbrush to just spray the scratches.

T Cut will not remove a deep scratch, especially on a black car, it may make it worse.
