    Scratch X ??

    I have a few places tht look like cat scratches. I can fit a very little part of my nail in the scratches. I have never used Scratch X so I was wondering if this would get rid of the scratches...thanks

    I take it this is only in the clear coat. If you can feel the scratch with your nail, I doubt you will get rid of it completely... especially if doing it by hand. I have had positive results with ScratchX. It will probably be able to lessen the appearance of the scratches, but plan of spending some time buffing on it to see results. Wax on, wax off... grasshopper.

    Save the money, It won't even remove minor swrils like it says.

    Most of that stuff will fill the scratches in and hide them but once you wash the car(same result as waxing), they will be noticed again. machine buffing is the only way to remove minor scratches and swirls.

    Turtle wax polish is an abrasive that will remove fine scratches with a powerbuffer

    It's good if the scratches still have the other person's paint in them. Like black on a white Camaro *ahem*

    If the scratch is just a scratch that goes straight through, Scratch X isn't gonna cut it.

    Scratch x is just a light rubbing compound.. great for removing tar and paint people leave on your door when they hit it in the parking lot, like others have said. The only thing I use it for, is when I do a touch up on my car, I use it to smooth it out when it dries.
