Scratch Remover

What scratch remover do you all suggest? I have a few light scratches on my truck I would like to get rid of before I put some liquid glass on it.

If the scratch is deeper than the clear coat you can not buff it out. If a light scratch in the clear coat you can get advanced swirl removers and buff them out with a sponge pad.

A truck without scratches is a grocery getter. Scratches are like scars, they add character.


If you want to avoid further scratches, may I suggest removing that Bernie or Hillary bumper sticker? They seem to attract 'em.

I personally find that body shops are your best bet to remove scratches. There are even places that specialize in painting small areas and blending it all in to make it look perfect. I had this done to a new vehicle that came with a couple of deep gouges in the paint.

Tony, while funny, I can assure you that there are no Bernie and ESPECIALLY Hillary bumper stickers.
