Hello. First of all i am new here and sorry if i started thread with wrong place :)

Otherwise, yesterday i had scratched my car, so can anyone advice me what type of Meguiares product will be good to treat this scratches?

In addition i can say that when i wet the scratches with water they disappear until they are wet. see the pictures (it is front passenger fender):

Guessing at the severity from the photo, some of those look too deep to remove. Again, just a guess. Some though, will be lessened or removed depending on your methods. Are you working by hand or with a polisher (if so, what kind?)? Meguiar's Scratch-X, Ultimate Polish or Ultimate Compound are your easiest products to find at the local store.

I am working with hand, so i already ordered megs ultimate compound and will try when it will arrive, if i will get even 50% improvement i will be very pleased.

So will try UC and then inform how it will work.

Thank you for reply :)

Welcome to Meguiar's Online and it sounds like you have a plan. When working by hand, many of us are fans of applying compounds, polishes, and waxes with a soft foam applicator pad like our W0004 Soft Foam Applicator Pads.

Do you know how the scratches we inflicted?
That might reduce recurrance.

Some look to me like a box was placed on a fender or trunk, then drug off.
If so it might be worth showing the resultant scratches to those placing boxes, grocery bags etc on the paint, while they unlock and open the door.
It is best to leave them in the cart, or place the box,bags on the ground until the door is opened.
The same thing can happen when unloading too, like putting on fender, while car door is closed.

Oh, it is a long an sad story, i was planning to do some repairs on my garage, that's why put some steel sheets on the wall, but didn't secured them, then they fell down right to my car's fender and scratched it. As already said, will treat it with some megs right compounds and pads, will very happy if there will some improvements. Don't want to repaint the fender, i respect factory paintwork.

Sorry that happened.
We will look forward to seeing the results you are able to get by hand using Ultimate Compound to diminish the damage.
