Paint Renovator

Hello folks, another question for you good people out there.

I have acquired a scratch on my car, and a chip on the boot.

Now I have a bottle of Paint Renovator that I got in the AG Case kit.

If I were to touch up the scratch and the chip with one of these Halford type pen kits which I have anyway, leave to dry then go over it with Paint Renovator, will this remove the appearance of the scratch / stone chip. Or would I be better with Paint Scratch Remover from planet polish?

Cheers

I once had a car keyed by some moron. I filled the scratch in with touch up paint and left the paint deliberately high. I left it a day then used paint renovator to remove the excess and it did a very good job. I suppose it depends on the colour of your car, mine was white so it worked very well.

As above, the colour will have some bearing on how the finished result looks. The darker it is the more unforgiving. But in theory it sounds good, then over with SRP after. The best results for this kind of thing will always be with a m/c though.

Leave the paint high, flat down with 2000grit paper on a block, then polish.
