    I had just cleaned and hoovered my car, spent a while on it, My cars body work was near perfect when i got it at start of year except a little rust buble on my sill bleow my drivers door, which i plan to get treated eventually, when i have the cash!
    I parked at Tesco for like 5 mins and when i returned there was a deep scratch on my bonnet, As though some1 has sat something on it its approx length of my thumb and if i run my nail accross it, it deffinately touches metal. Absolutly RAGING!!!!
    I've tried the JML scratch remover from the TV (rubbish), and T-Cut (stone and chip remover) nothing will take it out!

    Can any1 recommend anything or will it now need painted?
    Appreciate it if any1 can give feedback!
    cheers guys

    You need to fill it first before trying to polish out. Build up layers of touch up paint, lacquer over it, and then use a very fine grit sand paper before polishing.

    there are some stone chip repair companis out there that may be able to deal with your scratch,they normally work out of the back of a van.might be worth a try,they use small air brushes,at least if they can do it it would be cheaper than a bonnet respray.good luck mate
