Light Scratches on Bonnet of Car

Got lots of light scracthes on the bonnet of the car, not sure if they have come from a car wash or not.

Just looking at what products there is to remove them, going to try a polish first before using something abrasive.

Anybody got anything they would recommend? was looking at the AutoGlym products

I used Autoglym - found the scratches were from a cat which helped itself to the bonnet as it was nice and warm!

I'd try autoglym first, and if that fails maybe try some t-cut

yea that was my plan, cause T-cut is quite abrasive and removes a layer of the paintwork.

this farcela stuff is great, beats t cut hands down! also have different strengths for different scratches. sounds like you need the G3
(auto glym would take hours in my experience)
20 mins with farcela, hence all the body shops use it.
hope that helps.

Go with Autoglym. I have a Jaguar XJR, which has a flat boot lid, and b*stards tend to use it as a table in carparks to place their bags and cases when looking for something, and then drag the bags off the lid instead of lifting. My local hand car wash guy removed them without taking off any paint colour, just with Autoglym and elbow-grease.

IMHO anything else is overkill unless they're deep gouges.

Good luck

Are they actual scratches or are they swirl marks?

Actually having checked it was actually Turtlewax ColourMagic and it just makes them disappear. I then used an Autoglym wax-based product over the top to protect and make it last. I think you just choose the best pigment match and it 'fills' in the scratch. Worked really well though and a few well aimed projectiles sorted the cat out! ;-)
