Hi guys

So my 3 year old decided to plough one of his toy cars along my 911 this morning. Apart from losing my ***** now I've calmed down I need to get them buffed out. They look BAD here but thy are not to deep and should T-Cut out.

Was about to buy some on Amazon but thought someone on here will know what to get ! Thumb

It's a black - if that makes a difference.. thanks guys. Help Please !!!

Dan , kids who would have them Floor mate my thoughts are yes your right they look like they will come out but I would be taking it to a proper auto detailer or your areas porsche approved bodyshop as they will mop it out but better for them to machine out properly, otherwise if your not careful you will end up with lots of smaller swirls etc trying to hand mop black paintwork.

Cheers - i was thinking the same. A pro is an option but ..... ya know, its booking it in, getting it there, time sitting around and never mind $$$.

I was looking at something like this - with maybe a buffing machine - as it probably WONT be the last time.

I have a Silverline sander/polisher, use the wool pad on a low rpm setting with a good polish and you really cant screw it up. Horror stories are all people with high abrasive cutting compounds on high rpm

With light scratches its not complicated

My music teacher's young son offered to clean her car for her. He used a brillo pad on the bonnet as it was very dirty........... Luckily it was an old Cortina, not a Porsche and from then on it had a distinctive matt bonnet.

Britemax black max polish if applying by hand.

That’s what my detailer recommended for me after a football bounced off the bonnet.

If you’re anywhere near Derby you can have some of mine.

I would get a pro to machine polish it though, will be less than £50.
