leaving them...

Those scratch fillers are a scam...and only work for a little while(if you are talking about CBX 2000)

And rubbing compound will scratch your car even more if you don't know how to use it...and if the scratches are ???through the clearcoat and down to the metal???? it won't do any good.

Also touch up paint never really matches so instead of faint scratches you will have big old touch up paint rivers on your car...I see it all the time...I think it is not the best look for a car.

If the scrathes are slight...then I would say take it to a pro if you don't know what you are doing...otherwise...and I do mean this is risky...so please don't get mad at me when you burn your paint...use a direct drive rotary buffer with Finesse it II....and then polish with Imperial Hand glaze and then wax...if the scratch is still visible when you finish with the buffer the other stuff will not cover it up

If you have more questions or need links...feel free to email me.
