Hi all

I have discovered a scratch on my door. It doesn;t seem to be too deep.

What is the best way to deal with this?

You might be able to polish it out.
Try some G3 scratch repair paste on it.
I haven't used it myself, but have been told it's good stuff.

does the scratch look like a) a 'pastier' shade of your cars colour or b) white?

if a, itll rub out with a good medium compound like meguiars ulimate compound (g3 is so watered down that it will take alot more elbow grease for it to have an affect)

if b, then its down to primer, which can be fixed, either respray the whole door, or, cut back the clear coat, touch up the scratch with repair kit, cut that back to blend then re-lacquer, but that doesnt always work and its time consuming

cleaning products will only go so far, but not as far into paint damage
