I couldn't find a tread about this so Im making one....since, to my surprise, this really worked well.
THE OCD thread and several others have show damage and scratch all the way down the sides of the vehicles. I have plenty of them too from going down narrow trails. Looks like pin striping.
I talked to a body shop about getting rid of them and then possibly prevent more.
it was sound like it was going to cost hundreds of dollars to fix. I was thinking i would just live with the scratches since its just adds character...
I an idea that i ran across to prevent future scratches was to run a giant strip of cling on plastic -- like they use in body shops -- down the sides when i know the trails will be narrow....they you just take a knife and cut slots for the doors to open...then toss it in the trash when you leave the trail.
BUT i figure that to be pointless unless i removed the old ones.
SO i just went to store and got a scratch removal wax and and pad you put in a drill, the a buffing cover kit. this a very cheep way around investing in a Buffer.
IT worked very well and the wax pads and buffing cloths all cost about 10-12 dollars.
My wife and i were very very impressed.
I have more photos i will post and the products i used.
Im sure many on here have already done this before and probably have the real buffer....but this was my first time using this method of buffing out scratches the run the full lenght of the the vehicle.
