Chaps, I'm absolutely insensed!!!!!!!!:mad:

Some spotty faced vandal has scratched the front wing on my 56 plate golf gti to bits with a key or stone or summut.

Just wondering if anyone has any magic remedys for polishing them out. I've tried colour magic and t-cut, it's worked a bit but they're still really visible.

I'm fuming, the youth of today have no respect, borstal or conscription that's what they need!!!!!:mad:

Any suggestions welcomed.

Re: Mindless ****** vandalism!!!

Cheers mate.

Well i've been looking at it with a magnifying glass to see if I can see metal but luckilly not.

It's gone through the lacquer and paintwork and has just reached the primer, I'm a bit wary of using too much t-cut as I may take too much of the rest off.:(
 
hi len
wet and dry sandpaper 1200 or 1500 grit keep it very wet and go lightly in circles then pollish back to a shine with auto glym
dont panic when you have used the paper it will be really dull but will pollish back. softly softly

Do you have a polishing/buffing wheel ? seems to work well with cutting/buffing compound then polish there are some good links on google just seen some also works on scuffs but if its lightly gone into primer i would recommend 1st using a wax stick or paint pen and build up the paint again coverups are ok but best with a buffing wheel.
Hope its sorted easily for you m8.

Another good suggestion ! also works on surface rust on chrome as well as light steel wool with polish

Sorry to hear about that bud.

It may be better to get it along to a bodyshop and see what they say especially if its down to the primer.

You can mask it with all sorts of products, but to fill and sand really is a specialist job.

I know i wouldnt and im quite handy.

Another suggestion for the paint
In no circumstances try to just polish it out with T-cut etc. if it's down to the primer. You need to fill the scratches first with a paint stick and then t-cut it.
Must be a S.Wales thing, happened to me at the ASW plant about '95 or thereabouts.
