Surface Scratch Removal Advice

Hi all,

My wife, although with good intentions has scratched the paintwork of our Golf removing bird sh*t!

The majority of them look to be superficial but would appreciate some advice on how to remove and if it’s something I can do by hand?

Thanks in advance.

Arran

Hi, hate birds!! That will machine polish out or as a temporary measure you could use a glaze like Poorboy's black hole bit will need applying every couple of washes.

Surface Scratch Removal Advice

Try some polish if you have any, this may reduce / remove it, if not then Meguiars ultimate compound is effective and can be used by hand.

Another good one is G3 permanent scratch remover liquid and one of their white pucks - it’s got rid of a few for me previously…

You are bang on the button.I would have said the same after using both and they are not too expensive either which is a bonus.
