Deep Scratch Removal
Now this thread is a bit on the general side, so all you auto body and detailer guys chime in to discuss what the best methods are for scratch repair. Here is my specific scenario..
Over in our last snow storm, I needed to pick my folks up from the airport using my dad's pimpmobile 05 Astro van. I told my bro to go clear the snow off of the windows so we could drive out.. Well, he used the ice scraper EVERYWHERE and scratched the clear coat pretty good. In one spot or two, he chipped it down to the base coat. So my pops wants to sell the van, which means my bro needs to fix it.
Hes been looking through forums and whatnot as to the best way to remove such scratches, but what would you guys do? So far, it looks like-
Wet sand with 2000 grit till the scratch is gone.
Apply rubbing compound, rub that in till its all gone.
Use wax to protect and get the shine back.
