using t-cut

18
Found 19th Mar 2010
gave my car a good wash this morning and noticed quite a few small scratches which look white. i know t-cut will get rid of them but seeing as ive never done it before should i ask someone who has or is it easy enough to do without damaging the paintwork?

would i just get this from the car manufacturer? dont think halfords or wherever would stock this colour

The T-Cut colour restorer polishes aren't abrasive like the one you're talking about Donna...you'll know which ones they are in the shop because you have to buy one the colour of your car. They really do hide scratches well...

You buy the nearest match...i.e there's a blue one, but it works with all shades of blue... Unless your car is khaki with mauve polka dots you'll be fine ;o)

Nah - you'll be fine. Just remember when you go buy it to get yourself a good few soft rags - it's bloody hard work working it into the paintwork - which you need to do bit by bit to make sure it stays even...
