    HI,

    Your not the only one hobbling along here. My current project is a '99 Lexus...black and in need of work on the finish.

    I began using scratch X a couple of weeks ago by hand! It's pretty much a panel an evening....3 to 4 applications, really working it in each time. I could not do the whole car in one sitting, who could. I think patience is the name of the game. Yeah the panels stick out a little but if I'm asked about it...it gives me a chance to talk about MeGuires and scratch X..

    You should try M105 by hand-I'll bet you could cut your applications in half. I did a 11 year old Escort with one application of M105 and one coat of ColorX applied aggressively and it came out great.

    ColorX is going to be milder.... So you would get better results with ScratchX, and even better results with #105.

    How to use ColorX

    Also a friendly tip, ColorX is one word, not two as in Color x

    Thank you.

    I just had my hood and bumper painted, but the body shop left a TON of holograms! Seeing as ScratchX removes some paint, and I need to apply wax after, how long should I wait before using the product? Also, how hard do I need to apply the pad, and how long will a hood roughly take me so I know I'm not speeding through it? Thanks!

    For a question like this it's best if you start your own thread...
