Hey, today when i come out from the supermarket with a lot of food and other stuff, i am too lazy to put my damn water refill bottle on the truck, when i take it off the trunk, i am so careless(dumb) that i make some white scratches on the trunk.....do u guys think i just scratches the wax or i did scratch the paint....
i am so worry..and can i fix it???
O 1 more question, i have done a paint protectant along with my new lude, it said i never need to wax my lude while it will keep shine all the time, but now, just 2 months, i found that all that damn protectant are fade away already, and i have to wait 22 months more to re-coated it, so should i wait for it or wax it myself???????

try some wax first, it doesn't sound like it's a deep scratch.

haha sorry but it was just funny the way you wrote this thread. had to read it a few times to get what ur saying though

what material is your "water refill bottle" made of anyways?

plus, whatever product u used as your "paint protectant" is totally BS. nothing in the world can be applied to a clear coat and pretect it FOREVER. unless u got hookups with NASA. since u didnt even tell us what the name of that product u r using is, we cant really help u on that one. but i am guessing u can apply as many coats as u want to and not have to wait so many years for your next coat.

umm... man ur just confusing me even more with the coat stuff. and its a dealer coat?? i dunno man. haha, u gota type more carefully man!


as for the scratch, just try meguiars paint and clear coat scrub or try their step#1 cleaner. really depends how deep it is. if its a platic bottle with rough edges, it should be that deep. if its a definite scratch where its actually cut INTO the paint, then theres really no hope for that one. if its very thin, u can try meguiars fine scratch and swirl remover. thats all i can think of.

and as for waxing... man... ur like totally new at this stuff huh? i suggest u got to Meguiars.com. they have an awesome thing where u fill out a simple form and they tell u what to buy and for what reason and how to wax and everything like that.

i hate scratches....once in the mornign as i was leaving i was lazy and accidentally brushed the side of one of our other cars....luckily it was only a clearcoat scratch and i was able to buff it out....but when it happened i had all this white paint from the other car on mine and i thought i had done some damage (my car is silver)

Go buy some 3M swirl remover, imperial hand glaze and wax. Guaranteed to work.

(Is there something wrong with this picture?)
