Can't believe what young idiot at hand carwash has done to my bonett 2 huge long scratches I think left from his chamois. Any suggestions other than a re-spray gratefully accepted.

i



Take it to a bodyshop

see if they can flat and polish it ( very fine wet & dry paper then rotary mop with 3 grades of compound/ t cut, then wax)

they'll know what i mean

if the scratches are too deep then its repaint

Mark - sounds like you need to emply a local schoolboy on saturdays to wash your cars - would be a dream job for someone. (me if i was young enough !!)

You can complain for redress, but you may struggle to prove it was them.

On the positive side, you'd be amazed what can be removed by a skillful polisher- I had a deep scratch in the laquer of the bonnet of my car which was removed by a chap with a combination of v fine wet n' dry, compound and wax polish. Wouldn't want to attempt it myself, mind...

If a body shop can't help, then try a good valeter e.g.

Definitely worth it Jonathan, mine's going in in a week or so as the car wash maniac left lots of hairline swirls over quite a bit of the surface. Nothing noticeable from 10 feet away but close inspection (as I am want to do these days!!) just makes me want to get shot of them.
