On another car, my boot lid was keyed. It looked pretty deep and you couold catch your fingernail on it. I was going to have it sprayed up, but the guy at the bodyshop used some wet n dry 2000 and managed to get it almost perfect ('almost' meaning if I can be satisfied, then that takes some doing!) - seriously, it was only visible in some areas from about 6" away. Realistically, you're never gonna get that close witha acr are you?

You have to be real careful though if you are going to attempt this on your own. You must make sure you don't sand off too much (luckily, my scartch was only lacquer deep, but on a black car it looks worse!).

My neighbours kids have decided to key my two doors as well now, so will see how that pans out
