Buffing skin

Hi! I have several "streaks" on the side of the 345 that were apparently caused by a brush with tree limbs. Any advice on how to remove these without causing problems with the brushed aluminum skin?

Pete, first determine if what you are seeing are scratches, or plant residue. You can use some car wax to see if some of it comes out. Don't start with anyting too abrasive, your aluminum skin has a thin clear coat on it which is relatively fragile.
