Default WOW, awesome scratch removal product

Hey guys, I'm not usually one to tout this stuff, but I tried this on a whim since I used the 3M headlight restoration kit with good results, and it worked amazingly well! Stupidly, I didn't take before and after pictures, but the scratches are completely and utterly gone. It is basically a wet-sand kit, but it really is idiot proof, reasonably priced, and works perfectly. Highly recommend it! I had a few pretty unsightly scratches on my front bumper, and one on the roof of my e39, and I've already forgotten where exactly they were, literally not even a hint of them left.

Default agree

I agree with you, the stuff does work. But, it's really more about the procedure, than the product. Most people just are scared to wet sand, and then buff their paint. This is where the most good comes from.

Another good alternative if you have a DA polisher is meguiars 105 followed by 205 then seal. I had a light scuff on my back bumper that I thought was going to be a problem to remove. Broke out the clay and polisher this weekend and the stuff dissapeared after two passes with 105.

The whole rear end is amazingly reflective now after the meg twins and topping with menzerna powerlock. I have been doing the car panel by panel on the weekends to get ready for winter anyway. For light scuffs it is nice to try a micropolish first before breaking out the sandpaper.

They're talking about headlight restoration, but yes your method will work on paint.
