ScratchX Works! - I Stand Corrected (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17463)


Well guess what? I did it:db: I finally got rid of the scratch and the etching from bird poop :).

A HUGE thanks to all who replied to my other post and specially Mike :bigups who took the time to explain things a little clearer.

I must say though I would hate to do the whole car like that, I was buggered after just doing those :LOLOL:

ScratchX does work, you just have to understand how to apply it and work it (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showpost.php?p=152335&postcount=20).

Thanks again everyone

We love it when people come back and share their success stories! Our job here is to see people through to success and often times people join, state their problems, ask there questions and then we never hear back from them again, we hope we were helpful, but unless they come back and tell us how things went we just have to hope.

Removing scratches by hand can be extremely difficult, thank you for persisting and then sharing your success.

:bow :bow :bow

You guys were Extremely helpful and for that I thank you :).

Most people would have argued the point that it was good etc, but you just pointed out how to use it properly and it worked like a charm.

Mike... I am new to the forum...How does the Scratch X work? I've always wet sanded them and then buffed.. Is there a safer way?

Thanks

Another success story here...

I have an 2010 Audi A4 for just a few weeks now, and yesterday after work I noticed a bird dropped a BIG bomb on the hood. It was thankfully a short day for me so the car had only been sitting for 6 hours or so by the time I noticed the stain. I immediately removed the poop before driving home. When I got it home I noticed the etch, and tried to remove it with a good cleaner wax. It did not touch the etch. Hard to believe that after only 6 hours, it could stain so badly. Anyway, after scouring the internet for ways to remove the stain I found this forum. Tonight I went to my local parts store and bought some ScratchX. Tom my surpise and extreme pleasure it COMPLETELY removed the stain. I did have to go over the area several times, but niow I cannot tell it was every there! Thanks for a great product!!! Here are some before and after picts...
