    Paint Work A Disgrace

    I'm back again (and wont be the last time ). As the title says the previous owners have really not look after the car at all , the car is covered in blemish's and is scratched to hell. So whats the best thing to use to get rid of scratch's? and scuff's?

    cheers Dan

    the only way you are gonna get rid of scratches, swirl marks and scuffs, if they haven't gone through to the primer/bare metal, is by paint correcting the car. there are products out there that will hide the swirl marks such as Autoglym Super Resin polish but anything deeper will just be highlighted by the chalk in the polish.

    if it was my car there's only one way to go and thats paint correction, yes its gonna cost you a few hundred quid to have it done but its worth every penny

    heres a few befores and afters of paint correction i did on a new beetle
