I noticed a few small scratches on my trunk lid and rear quarter. They aren't really noticeable but enough to drive me nuts. what scratch remover have you guys found to work best? I tried a bottle of mothers california gold scratch remover that i had sitting in my garage but it doesn't really work that great. the scratches arent really deep. when i run my finger nail over it you can slightly feel the groove.

^ wow W2W....

That's awesome right there.

I usually use 2000grit sandpaper and light just sand the surface in all directions until that scratch is gone, and using several types and stages of polishes I polish the haze that I've just created to a mirror shine. I mostly use Poorboys & Meguiars.

Yeah that's pretty sweet pen! but I'm not too sure how that works. It seems like a clear coat filler. But I don't think it something anyone should use... google fixit pro. You'll see...

if the scratches are small and un notice able it can be taken care of in a matter of minutes. i dont see how a pen can fill it and retain the smooth surface of the paint. these are pictures of a vw beetle these photo's are not photo shopped.( with the exception of resizing) with some time you can do pretty much anything.

when you scratch clear coat it turns hazy white. the pen is just going to hide it... a clearcoat pen will basically do the same thing....

The "Fix It Pen" does not work. I've read quite a few reviews on it and people actually filed law suits against the company.

I just posted it as a joke.

Simple rule of thumb: if you drag your finger nail across the "scratch" parallel to it and it catches, then you'll need to fill the scratch. The catch indicates you've gone through the clear coat and only building up the clear and then sanding it down will fix it. Other then that, repainting the surface. once you've sanded it flush, you cut and polish it to bring up the shine. If they are surface scratches - which I suspect in the photo's provided - you can wet sand them as needed and then cut and polish.
