    Colored waxes: Turtle Wax Color Magic or Formula 1?

    I've used the Turtle Wax https://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Wax-FG...078QVR8GQ?th=1 in black and dark blue to hide fine scratches on a hood or bumper with good results. Of course it doesn't remove the scratches but hides them by filling in the white looking scratches with color matching wax. Now I need it for a red car but Turtle Wax has discontinued that line except for black and there is only some left over red bottles available online for $27. I found Formula 1 https://www.formula1wax.com/collecti.../color-wax-red which seems to be similar for only $6. Has anybody tried both to compare how they work?

    You are probably not going to get much help on those waxes with this being a Meguiar's forum. Have you considered one of the Meguiar's cleaner waxes which will remove defects.

    Of course, I've used 205 on the areas but there is only so much that will do on rock chips and scratches.

    Have you looked at Dr. ColorChip?

    I've done similar to Dr. but this is a bumper with nooks and curves that make it impractical to use.

    Rock chips are another story. You can use touch up paint as mentioned but if it is in really rough shape then you are looking at a repaint.

    I've only used the Turtle Wax version. Was not at all impressed. The chip was probably too big.
