    Just cleaned the car and used autoglym super resin polish and it came up a treat, on the downside i do have a few nasty scratches that id like to see if i can remove, would e grateful of any hints or tips as to remove these.

    Major key scratch on the drivers door, why do people do it!!!???

    i also have a small dint on the bonnet, could i use something to fill this and then paint it? these seems to be laqour peel too, how do i approach this?

    any advice would be great

    Get a free estimate from Chips Away first before attempting yourself

    Same, get professional advice/quote but if you really need DIY advice, ask
    pieter. He has painted his E36 with a rattlecan paint and it looks stunning!

    I got some rattle tins in Oxford Green, being a dark colour it blended in very well, you have to look really hard to see where I have painted.

    Trouble is your colour looks a b***h to match up, might be worth getting a quote 1st.

    I have used a product called ChipEx on stone chips with good results, it may help here.

    Fill the scratch using a tooth pick or similar, over a couple of hours, build the paint up! Then allow it to harden for a day or two, then sand it down using a fine grain wet 'n' dry followed by a bit of laquer and you won't see the scratches...
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    My splitter looked like it had been attacked with a shotgun, a couple of hours using ChipEx and problem gone
