Re: Scratch removal
Thanks for the pics.
It's a shame there are sections that are deep, as the remainder (biggest part of it) would've responded well to a damned good compounding & polish.
The deepest parts will need gently sanded (to feather in the edge), then primed, painted & lacquered.
It would be an ideal job for an airbrush tool, just to help blend it in with the existing bodywork.
If the painter is worth their salt, he should as a matter of course deal with any other minor paintwork issues (such as the paint chipped off the door edge) free of charge. I do, as standing watching paint dry, is as boring as it sounds.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
