Re: Megane III coupe key scratch

Hear of this very regularly, unfortunately.

Touch-up paint is still (thankfully), solvent-based, so it can be diluted with thinners.

Are the scratches deep enough for your fingernail to catch? If not, it can be compounded and polished to reduce the visual effect. If it is deep though, you will need paint.

If you need advice on effecting a repair, reply on this thread, and I will give you a step-by-step guide (including consumables needed).



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
