Just messed up!

Ok - just got back from the car wash that I always use and when I got home I noticed fine scratches all over my AS. Used the same stall and cleaned the brush as always.

Can these be removed?? or am I going to have a constant reminder of that day at the carwash

Maybe, maybe not. I've had several scratches from branches that disappeared with Wolbernize.

I damaged the Classic on the first wash also, don't feel alone.

I was lucky, I noticed them before doing the second panel.
I used 3m compounds to remove the scratches, using a Porter Cable Orbital polisher. (can be done by hand, not fun.)
If you can't feel the scratch with your fingernail you should be able to polish it out. Just takes a bit of time.

IMHO......This is the ONLY thing to use when washing the AS.

I'm sure their polishing compounds would also work well.
Sealed with the paint sealer.
I seal once a year.
You won't go wrong with any of their car care products.

PS...once done don't use a fabric trailer cover or you'll be doing it all over again. Been there too!

Good luck...

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
