If using T-cut colour restorer, remember that you are removing layers of paint as you rub. :thumbsup:

Best buy at asda, they have 375ml bottles for around £3.50. :thumbsup:

But, remember it's a cutting polish, it will remove the top layer(s) of paint, that's how it blends in the scratches. :)

Just be careful, but be aware you are removing the top coat as you rub.

It would take a lot of elbow grease to go down to the primer though, you'll be fine.

It's sort of like T-cut but 10 million times better. Cutting/finishing compound.

ftw means For The Win so don't go asking for Farecla ftw:thumbsup:

You could always say it's FTW (For The Wings)? :-D

Don't think you'll pick it up for £3.50 in asda though. :thinking:

I havent gone through the replies, but the best way to sort out scratches is to use Auto Glym Scratch Remover. Get a polishing rag and dampen it, shake the bottle and put a nice dollop on the rag, use a circular motion. Once you have done this, use a nice wax polish. Something like Autoglym super resin polish or a turtle wax paste etc. Stay away from the liquids personally.

If you need some more advice, ask. But if it needs touching up I would get a special repair company to do it, they never look good when they are touched in. And painting it would ruin the look of the rest of the car.
