I have successfully removed previous scratches by using a car buffer and polishing compound. I thought I would do the same for the edges of the scratch, then spray the entire scratch with very thin layers of automotive clear coat, followed by more buffering.
Has anyone used spray-can, automotive clear coat on scratches to protect the aluminum and fill in the scratch?
I am not sure that the automotive clear and Airstreams coating are compatible.
But, Airstream does have a clear coat in spray cans that works ok.
Not cheap, but ok.
Available from parts stocking dealers.
