    Well here goes, i have a mole on the top nearside of my leg, i hate my feet and I run like Forrest Gump.:yahoo:

    As promised, i have taken some pictures of my 'not so good' spots on the car. :blink:

    first of all these are the two scratches down the drivers side.... just need to get the car booked in to have this resprayed

    and after claying and xscratching my bumper. Due to a mobile guy rubbing compound on whilst the car was dirty, the finish was terrible..... luckily most has come out.... that wont be happening again!! pissed-off isnt the word!!

    If you are buying a polishing machine, you might want to give it a go yourself, if it doesn't work out good, then you have the parts resprayed.

    I tried some stone chips filling/polishing on mine,...worked quite well actually.:

    yer u may find the polisher will get those scratches out. if not could always try wet-sanding but thats something i wouldnt do until i had perfected it on scrap panels!

    Have to say that most of those scratches look way too deep to be fully corrected by machine polishing alone; at the very least wetsanding will be needed, but perhaps also bodyshop attention in some cases. :sorry:
