Taking Scratches out of the clear coat any ideas

Has anyone found a good way to get the scratches out of the clear coat?

If you can feel the scratch with your fingernail it's probably not going to polish out completely. Important not to rub thru.

After backing too close to a freshly pruned apple tree I was just about able to make the resulting scratches disappear.....with this.
Did not use an orbital machine, slowly by hand using micofiber cloth.

Good Luck.

Bob

A fleece wash mitt scratched the clear coat. I could see the lines and swirls in bright sunlight. Oh great. The first time I wash my brand-new $_ _, _ _ _ trailer and I wreck it. Pretty upsetting.

I got some Walbernize Super Seal and had a go with it. Amazingly, it pulled the scratches out. This product works exceptionally well with those seeable, but not feelable, flaws.

The fleece mitt went in the trash. Like Robert said, only use microfibre.

Happy!

FaN,

This is the best dam tool I've found to wash "Cloudsplitter"
