Six Days, 5 Scratches and a Bump!

Owned a G for six days and already have 5 key scratches (each about six to ten inches long) on the passenger side and a little bump (an inch or two long) on my rear bumper!

I hope it's been done by someone who REEEAAALY hates me. At least, that person will be happy about it.

I'm gonna try to remove those scratches with scratch remover tomorrow.... They are not very deep, so I'm hoping that I can at least cover up some. Any recommened product(s)?

said colt 45 and two zigzags baby thats all we need
we can go to the park, after dark smoke that tumbleweed


oh yea, i know that song alright! haha.

op: use 3m swirl mark remover (it works for scratches too!) then 3m imperial hand glaze if theyre not deep. if theyre deep, get rotary buffer and some aggressive pads and go to town (tho be extremely careful with this, read some detailing forums before you do anyhitng!!!!).

Meguiars Scratch-X has taken out some scratches for me - I've used it a lot on the G's ancestors.
