    Can I just check something? If a scratch catches on my fingernail as I run it across it, it's too deep too polish out? The scratches look minor but my nail catches so I believe that's a no polish.

    I don't think they'll polish out completely, but it can still help reduce the visibility of them. How about touch up paint?

    You're right up with me. :) I've been looking at Chipex to fix the stone chips and tackle the scratches that won't go.

    Apparently it's best to use a toothpick and apply very thin layers. Then laquer over the top, and finally polish it in.

    like the look of that chipex stuff got lloads of scratches and chips on mine that i want to sort out, if you have som slight scratches try some really fine paper or a nibber then polis out that works pretty well on most scratches that aren't to deep.
