Fine scratches on black

After recent Green Laning I've picked up a number of scratches - it was always going to happen, calculated risk



The majority have been corrected by hand no problem





But I'm left with some very fine scratched through the paint layer, but too fine for touch up (in my ham fisted opinion). Is it worth trying some dark wax to hide these or try a product like Dr. Colour chip?

Wax won't do anything. A fine brush and matching paint is all you can do for the deeper ones which have gone through the paint, apart from a respray of course.

You used to be able to get a wax chip stick that was coloured and would fill / disguise a scratch, but you had to be able to feel the scratch with your nail, as I seem to remember you rubbed it across the scratch to fill it in - obviously won’t get rid of the scratch, but might help disguise it...

Thanks for the replies, don't really want to go down the respray route - likly too just happen again, so will put off a while and then bit the bullet. Cheers ��
