Re: Surface Scuffs

Sounds good coup!

The wet abrasion using fine abrasive block is something I think most SMART repair kits come with (even Hellfrauds) and sounds like a fairly similar technique that I've used in the past for stone chips. Most of my marks came out with a tiny bit of t-cut and a damn good wax all over with Turtle Wax Nano Tech. Car looked beautiful after it had been done and is due a wash this weekend weather pending. Longer term I'm going to buy the 3M stuff mentioned as it came up in a different conversation with a guy who's just restored an 80's bimmer drop top - looks stunning.

Re: Surface Scuffs

glad yours is sorted ok.
My experience with the "kit" is..the base coat drying time is going to take a lot of testing.

The diagrams look simple enough ,but it needs experience.Leave 10 min exactly then wipe off isnt gonna cut it.(unintentional pun)
Start rubbing too soon and all the base coat comes off,leave it too long and and u have a raised lip with a crater in the middle .
One good thing is you can reapply the base coat as often as needed,after wiiping it all off.
It will just take time to get the technique right ,again.
