    hi all!!

    my boss lent me his brand new a4 black edition for my wedding and the ribbons have "scratched" the paint!!! i say "scratched" as they just dont seem like scratches, anyway, not a complete novice, but what would you suggest to remove the marks? as the car is only 3 weeks old i dont want to use anything to harsh, i will hand applying/removing if this heps,

    thanks you in advance!!

    Wow.... thats impressive for ribbons. You could use SRP, but you'll never get it looking perfect by hand.

    Ideally that needs machining out. I'd offer to help if you're local.

    Yes a friend of mine decided to put them silly eye lashes on her car :no:

    When driving into wind they flicked up and scuffed/scratched her bonnet - a simple polish got rid of them for me :icon_thumright:

    I'd be suing the makers of the ribbon.
