Brilliant Black Blemishes, Hairline Scratches etc

Post by Tayl » Mon Mar 20, 2017 6:41 pm

Hey all,

What would you recommend to cover up/get rid of scratches and slight blemishes such as the following:

Never really had a car with so many scratches or blemishes on it so I'd like to get these treated as soon as possible to stop them from getting weathered/worse.

Any recommendations, tips or tricks are greatly welcomed!

Regards,

James.

the lads at frankys speedshop will let you know but I'd imagine everything there will come out with a good compound like meguiars.Get your hands on a DA polisher and set to work with the compound.Afterwards do the same with meguiars polish and I reckon she'd come up a treat.

Before all that give the car a good wash ( 2 buckets ) and dry it off with micro fibre towels ( pat it dry ) claybar the whole car to remove all the impurities and then get to work with the compound and polish.Dont forget to give her a good wax after your done.Personally I use poor boys but there's loads out there.If your still a bit unsure drop frankys speedshop a PM on here,they'll sort you out :thumright:
