This is painful to report.....but I must. I was so scared to take the car to a car wash, I let my Brother-in-law wash/wax a few times. Now I have scuff marks and scrapes which are clearly evident on the hood when you look close. Any ideas on the best way to get them out? They seem to be superficial, and not at all anywhere near to base medal.

thanks

Are they swirl marks like from a wax or buff? and the scrapes, do you have any pics? I could help more with some pics perhaps. If it is just paint scrapes, you could buff it out or have a professional buff them out. If they are deeper, you might have to look at some paint pens....

pic up some QUIXX scratch repair system from me....it will fix them permanently.


2 part system from Germany. Turns the paint plastic and repairs the paint with itself, then the second part removes step 1 and leaves it super polished.

You have used this stuff Fig? I have read about it in car mags, but the claims in advertising are usually hyped.
I was wondering the same thing. I had some idiot key my car the 1st day I had it. It's a fairly short job... about 3 inches in a V-shape. Was wondering about trying something like this. How deep can the scratches be and still be repaired with this system?

I found these guys 2 years ago at SEMA and have been selling it on Ebay. I frequently use it at meets and it is amazing on toyota paint. Even pearls. Here is a girl's car from isfanatics that had and encounter with a tree and was gracious enough to take before and afters on a blue IS.

Looks really good. Watched the video you posted as well. Quick question... If you try to use the system without the wet sandpaper on a deeper scratch, and it doesn't fully eliminate the scratch, can you then go back in and start over using the sandpaper step? In other words, is this a one-attempt-only deal?

Thanks! Everything seems easy enough, but I have to admit, the thought of using the sandpaper is a little stressful!

yeah just remeber its 3000 grit. Very light by abrasive standards. And this in not one shot, just repeat the steps if its pretty deep. It will even tackle really deep scratches given you apply a good touchup paint prior to give it something to work with. I am always available via phone if you get hung up.
