DRIV3R Thanks a lot for the info..
I need couple of bottles I believe. My weekend mission.
Very well done..It looks like that there was no scratch/dent at all. Very useful information. I own a hiphop black punto and have a small dent close to the rear wheel.
Thanks to BBMP : Garbage cleaner trolly touched my parked car.
The dent is slightly deep..and I fear it will start rust if i do not attend it soon.
Has any one tried this pen. <http: www.com-paint.com="" cpage.aspx?mpgid="13&pgid=64">. They do not have a spray paint kit for black colour..this pen would be helpful for scratches for touch up.</http:>
I do not know how to add a link..it is on the www-dot-com-paint-dot-com site.
I have bought the pen too but have not tried it yet because of the humid weather and rains, I will update with before and after pics once I do that, have few deep scratches to cover up.
Nice DIY section today just got relieved on seeing ur DIY. one guy..... scratched my punto with his tvs 50 ... was really upset ,,I did the waxing those scratches are not visible for now . Do this still require a paint job ?
do i get these items in ebay ?
Please post a pic of the damage and we will let you know. You can buy these directly from COM-Paint website.
Thanks DRIV3R will post it soon
DRI3R here are the pics its less visible as I rubbed it with the wax polish
The scratches do not seem deep. A good rubbing polish and some waxing would cover it up.
If you would like to try a hand on rubbing, I would suggest Formula 1 scratch out liquid first. It is very mild rubbing compound and is perfect for trying out the first time. Apply some with a microfiber cloth and buff it nicely, followed by a coating of wax. If the scratch is still visible, then you need to use a more aggressive rubbing compound like 3M. Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for your suggestion will get the scratch out liquid.
For Waxing I do have a carnauba product. any feedback on this ? The images where after applying this .
As you said i have to go for Formula 1 scratch out liquid and then waxing.
Yes, just waxing would do nothing.
It would just mask the scratch temporarily and superficially. Use a rubbing compound followed by wax.
