Inner Sill Treated with G3 Scratch Remover

Today I treated some scratches on my inner sill with G3 Scratch Remover liquid and a microfibre cloth. It took a few tries, plenty of liquid and some elbow grease as they clearly make the product safe to use.

Here is some before/after pictures:





I'm quite happy with the results and think I could still remove some more with another few tries and proper applicator pad. Then clean up the chips/scratches that are through to plastic with some touch up/laquer, wet sanding and polish.

It's very effective stuff. Get some of the farecla applicators and it works very well very quickly.

I've even used it on yellowing headlights by hand and it did a good job.

Cheers guys, there's still come light residual scratches left but feel it came out alright, especially when seeing the before/after comparison.

I'm definitely going to pickup some waffle applicator pads to finish it off.

I noticed that in this scratched area of the sill even with a tough application the appearance was brightened, yet when using the G3 on a small bonnet scratch by a washer jet it seemed to dull the paint easily. They say on the bottle of G3 if the treated area becomes dull to use some polish so will try that.

It does contain diminishing abrasives so you may not have worked it long enough. But a polish will bring it back up again

That's probably correct as I only gave the bonnet a quick rub with the G3 and didn't persevere with it like the sill panel. I used some autoglym polish to remove the dullness, there is still some scratch there but as I said I didn't really persevere with it and just gave it a quick rub.
