Here we have a brand new Subaru BRZ that was a victim of a hit and run.

I'll let the photo speak for itself.



When the customer brought his car in I was extremely skeptical at the possibility of even cleaning it up, already providing him with my body shop's phone number to him. I ran my fingernail across the scratches and they were pretty deep and there were many.

He was quite upset so I told him I would give it a shot without any promises.

The tools and products used:

Rupes BigFoot LHR 15ES
Rupes BigFoot LHR 21ES
Sufbuf Pad 6 inch
Meguiar's Microfiber Cutting Disc 5.25 inch
Menzerna Fast Gloss 400



As you may or may not know I personally don't like to wetsand if I don't have to hence these were the tools and products I decided to use.

After a few passes with the Rupes with the microfiber cutting pad and fg400 we were able to most of the paint transfer out of the paint but it didn't look good.


Another angle



From there I decided to go a bit more aggressive with the Surbuf pad and Menzerna FG400 then went back to the MF Cutting Pad with FG400 to finish it out.
That combo was a success! We were able to get 95% of the damage out.




Total time it took to get these results about 10 minutes, not too bad.

Enjoy

I need to borrow you. :lol: We have 2 cars with dog claw scratch marks all over the doors. If I send you a picture do you think you could say it you think it's fixable? Or is this something you would actually have to literally feel out? :)

Holy crap...since you can get rid of that I think I can actually get rid of the scuff in the door on my truck. I only believe I will need the Menzerna SF1500 but this goes to prove what can be done with some know how
