removing light scratches

somebody made light scratches with a pin or key on the back of my airstream. They did not reach the aluminum. It aoppears they only damaged the clear coat. How or what can I use to fix this.

Welcome to the forums,

I too have a similar situation on the side of my airstream and have been unsuccessful in removing them with a light polish. If you polish to much you will dull that area that your attempting to fix and it might stand out more. I will be interested if someone here has something that worked.

Good luck.

Thumbs up

Iv'e had good luck with these. Removed some tree branch scratches without clearcoat damage. You really have to look close to find them.

Also worked well on some clearcoat marks on the Burb.

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