In Reply to: Good compound to take out scratches with? posted by Dat on June 25, 2000 at 21:07:35:

Believe it or not, I've only found one product which will take out clear coat level scratches, without either creating worse scratches, or removing the paint alltogether. That product is 3M's Cleaner Wax for Moderate Oxidation. That's the key....The lighter stuff is good, but wont get the deeper scratches...And, application is important...You want to get a hard rubber sanding block, and wrap a 100% cotton terry towel around it. Then, putting your body weight into it, go back and forth, with good pressure, several times slowly, as if you were sanding. The day I discovered this was a very happy day...Ive tried all the others, to Imperial Hand glaze, to Perfect it and finesse it by 3M, to all the Meguiars products, etc, etc. This has proved to be the only one to accomplish what you are asking for. Once you try it, you'll be thanking me!
