    scratch repair pin

    Ok, was shopping in cvs and picked one up. Only have used on a couple of scratches, I am impressed. Will not work on chips, but works pretty good on scratches. Dont expect a flawless paint job, but for 9 bucks, Banks is redeemed for the shamwow. He will get his wings now.

    Called the "Fix it Pro".
    I think it is just clear coat in a pen.

    Okay, you caught my curiousity and I went by walgreens and picked one up. My truck is full of scratches and I've only washed it twice, so wtf... I can give it a shot.

    got home, shook it up, soaked the tip and put it on. Immediately after putting it on it says to wipe off. I tried this a few times in a couple of different ways. If you wipe immediately you just smear the clear across the paint. If you wait a second, then wipe of the clear has become to harden and you have a big gluey looking piece that sits above the paint or chips when you wipe leaving an even more horrid surface finish. There is no good way to remove the excess while leaving clear only in the scratch.

    Like you would think, the pens a piece of crap. Your better off lightly sanding and reclearing with oreilly spray clear coat. Better yet, take that ten dollars and go buy 3 ultimate cheeseburgers from Jack in the box and know that you at least got some enjoyment out of your money.

    scratch repair pin

    If you can feel the scratch with your nail its needs wet sanding, and then polishing back up.
    If its not that deep, itll just polish out.
    Do you have a machine polisher, or are you doing it by hand?
