This used to work well on old cars,but with most cars having metalic paint, I do not find useful anymore.....

They do make one for metallic paint. You do have to be careful with this stuff as you can easily go through the paint. First consider a less abrasive product like Autoglym Super Resin Polish

do they have metallic?

Hmm... good old cut.... is this effective? I have a number of light scratches on my new car... gloss black finish...

this stuff works treats on old red cars.

If you have light scratches, I can't suggest this - it is, as someone said, very abrasive and on some softer (many newer) paints, it will easily cut too far without some extremely close attention.

Super Resin Polish is a good polymide filler, but doesn't correct light scratches - it fills them and will require sealing after (wax/sealant etc). Something middle of the road for abrasiveness would be best - Dodo Juice Lime Prime Lite or many of the Poorboys/Menzerna products are very good.

But note beforehand: polishing out scratches by hand is a very slow process. A DA polisher is much quicker (requires moderate skill) and a rotary polisher (professional skill) even quicker still. Can't suggest machines though, unless you have time to learn first.

This stuff is old and outdated, too abrasive and harsh

My old nextdoor neighbour used this on his red Sierra EVERY clean..... I still remember his face when his red bonnet went silver!!!

He was like Victor Meldrew's nasty twin so I did too!!

I've used this to revive some xbox 360 games I picked up dirt cheap and scratched to ******y. It's a bit of an effort and an art but you feel pretty chuffed afterwards. Remember centre to rim, no circles.

Do you think he T-Cuts his xbox Elite - it used to be black, then gleaming silver, now pitted and rusty like when Dorothy first meets Tin Man.

When I next get a really fuggered disk I might make a video for youtube. I had a copy of GTA IV that had a gouge you could do half-pipes in and by the time I'd finished I genuinely thought I'd got the wrong disk. I'll be a complete bore and describe it in detain for now.

Put the disc on a table on a towel or piece of paper or something, just so the table doesn't scratch the 'picture' side, as that's even worse than scratching the normal side. Put some of your T-Cut on a cloth, I've got those fawny orangey coloured things with old lady blanket stitching on the edges, no idea what they're called as they've just always been there. Then if you've holding the disc steady with your left hand rim to rim then rub your finger from the edge to the middle with your right hand - at first you can be truly brutal and the disc will look absolutely cackified at the start. If there are scratches all over it then just turn it with your one hand and keep rubbing left right left right with the other. So anyway, concentrate more on the superbad areas then rub less vigourously as time goes on and move to a clean piece of cloth so you're actually taking the abrasive juices off.

And that's basically about it. I've even used Autosol to do it once which is really abrasive. This was on a copy of Lost Planet which it turns out is a crap game and it took well over an hour to get it in a good enough condition to install 100%.

So anyway, first attempt I'd say get something you've got which is already ruined but don't mind losing or what I did was get a DVD I got free with the paper and then scrammed it a few times with a knife. My first attempts I tried to use the polishing things on a dremel but even at low speeds they spin so fast that they melt small areas of the surface. It's a disaster.

Concerning cleaning discs I personally use brasso
