Default Dull Paintwork

Hi Guys and Gals I need help getting my paintwork back to its best. My car is a 01 Carbon Black and is a little dull even after a good waxing and polishing. I have used T cut Colour restorer and this helped a little but recently new neighbours moved in and their cat has taken a shine to my M3 leaving lots of claw scratches albeit very slight ones. The damn thing has even scratched the brand new windscreen. I am fumming and not a violent person but am seriously considering ripping their heads off (the neighbours). Please help

Talk to Phil at Detailer's Domain. He'll get you set with restoring your paint. Great guy and real professional detailer. Nothing but honest and incredibly knowledgable.

A two or three stage paint correction should do the trick. Small scratches and swirls refract light causing the paint to look dull.

Lure the cat, kill it. Problem solved.

You could wet sand and buff the whole car. Look into 3m's 3stage buffing
