    Finger nail used / how to buff a way

    I have a black car and on the hood saw some bumps, like sap or something so I used my thumb nail to pop it off and remove it and in the process notice it left marks "like scratches" and I can not wipe them away. How can my thumbnail do this? How do I fix this and get the marks off now?

    Thanks

    Cleaner wax like the A12, or ColorX should do the trick. If you need a little more oomph, SwirlX would be a great choice.

    It's always tempting to pick with your fingernail,but it's very easy to make scratches.

    ok thanks.

    So this is an easy fix sounds like. What cloth is best to apply it with and buff it out with? Also what do I put on after I clean up the marks?

    A terry cloth or foam pad to apply and work into the paint and a MF to buff off residue.

    Ok, what is a MF? After do I apply some synthetic sealer or synthetic wax?

    'MF' stands for microfibre cloth on the forum,to save typing.

    You could use NXT Tech wax 2.0 after.

    Eddie6th: Thanks. I wanted to make sure I got the right stuff.

    So this is safe and will not ruin anything?

    If I take it in to the dealership and say can you remove them and clean it up I am sure they will know or should I let them know to use a specific compound and sealer?

    Thanks

    It would take you 5 minutes to do, I would just do it myself. It sounds like one of the most minor of problems and you really can't do any damage with a cleaner wax if thats what you are worried about (making it worse). Dealerships are known for damaging paint, especially when using a rotary. I would avoid relying on the dealership as much as possible. If you want the most out of your paint, work on it yourself.
