In Reply to: sanding out scratches in clear coat paint... posted by Jenny Maraletos on August 27, 2001 at 23:59:33:

Unless they're deep (in which case they wouldn't be contained in the clear coat), you can find plenty of good tips and product recommendations at

In two words, start with the mildest scratch remover or polish and go to stronger ones if you don't notice any improvements. As you try different products, don't work in the same area - every time you polish it a part of the clearcoat goes away.

Good luck,
black 5er, knows scratches..

I have a calypso red 525i, very beautiful...There are scratches all over the body in the clear coat, not in the paint itself.

I would like to wet sand or buff out the scratches myself. Does anyone know the best way to accomplish this. THank you for your help. you can send me an email answer
