Paint Scratch Repair

Does anyone know if this is any good?

Does it do what it says on the tin or should I leave well alone?

Re: Paint Scratch Repair

Would like to see a physical result in person first. Seeing the real demonstration, rather than pictures?:

Re: Paint Scratch Repair

funnily i used this today as a test.

it is sold by scratch doctor also - tho pic is diff you get the same stuff.

on my dark blue 156 it was OK on the feintest of scratches - tho i wouldnt expect too much

it did clear up some things - tho it did mat the paint a little during application and takes a bit of work to buff back to normal

anything more than the smallest hair bredth scratch it will not budge it - and applying too much is dangerous for the paint

Re: Paint Scratch Repair

Thanks Chill thats very useful. Do I need to be careful with these products? Is there any risk to my paintwork?

Ah Bob it seems you have answered that! Thanks.

Re: Paint Scratch Repair

I have bought this before. Works OK on very fine scratches but not up to much on anything more

Re: Paint Scratch Repair

I've used Mothers scratch remover now for some time to get rid of all sorts of surface scratches (doesn't work on those deep down scratches that go down to the base coat).

Here's a link to a forum I posted some pictures about scratch removing:
Autonhoito.info :: Näytä viesti - Naarmunpoisto

The subject was my ex-156 with proteo red paint.

As you can see from the last picture, the end result was a well polished surface!
