Been waiting for this admittedly entry level dual action polisher to drop in price for a whilst, whilst it’s been this price before it’s a good bit of kit for £40. Safer on paintwork than rotary polishers and for the beginner (like me!)

This has been down to £30 in the past from Argos (herp derp time travel machine) so not voting either way but just thought I'd mention. I bought it then but still haven't got around to opening it yet.

Will this help get scratches from a car door? I've used a scratch remover kit on it but I can still see a slight indentation.
Waste of £40, just ask your cleaner at work to borrow the floor buffer for free.
2m cable is pretty short, you usually drape the cable up your back and over your shoulder so it's not hitting the paintwork. With only a 2m cable you'll end up having it plugged into an extention cable and plug hitting your back?

You could always change the length of the lead or just wrap it in a towel. But if you're that concernd, what you doing at this end of the price bracket with your expensive motor?

What do you mean by usually? These are entry level polishers.
I didn’t say I was buying this, I was merely stating people should be aware if they get this to be wary of the plug.

If you have a auto paint shop near you that mixes and sells paint and I don’t mean halfords as they’re thick as .
I got a few 3m bottles that pros use to take scratches out they abrasive compounds a bit like sand paper in different grit forms. And these compound wax’s are really good take out almost all scratches and make deeper scratches less noticeable.
So yeah go to your nearest auto paint shop and tell them want you want to do and they will sort you out.

General rule of thumb is if you can feel the scratch with a fingernail it needs filling. Otherwise you'll end up removing the clearcoat over a large area by trying to polish it out.

Better to use a touch up kit, carefully sand with 1000/2000/3000 grit wet and dry, then polish.

Depends how deep it is. If it disappears when you pour water over it, you should be able to as that indicates clear coat damage only (though it depends on how abrasive a compound you use). I don’t have experience with this machine so can’t comment on this one. But a decent one would work for the above.

38029307-FdVMs.jpgCan someone recommend best why of getting this out? The bump is not too bad just wanting the cover up the missing paint.

I've put touch up paint but now looking worse and somewhat more noticeable. If I sandpaper it and then polish with this would it blend in? Thanks!

How did you apply the touch up paint? For a scratch that big you’d need spray cans as a minimum but that’s no substitute for a professional respray. If you just want it looking a bit better I’d recommend checking out some YouTube videos which cover the sanding and painting process. But do it at your own risk!

Just get a smart repair if your unsure, doubt it will cost that much and saves you the hassle, I never bother with touch up paint as it's never perfect and always noticeable in my opinion.

I wouldnt recommend sanding your car unless you plan on spraying if afterwards because it will remove the top layer of paint and dull it and it will be very noticeable.

If you do plan on doing it your self, then i would sand down the area and mask around it and get a a body shop to match your paint colour and use a aerosol spray to paint it, allow to dry and then clear coat it.
