  2. 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.

    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.
