    Hey guys - just at work and with this lovely weather it's making me want to clean my car up as it's SO dirty!

    Whats the best cleaning product to use?

    I saw an advert from "JML" (lol) for a scratch removing product, does anyone know if it works and if it's safe? I take it since it's from JML it's crap.


    *ALSO!*
    What do you recommend for the following:
    -I have a few minor scratches on my drivers side window (some dick scratched it with their coat zip i think) what can i use to remove that (by hand)???
    -I have a few scratches around my body work that are pretty minor, however i put HALFORDs primer on them and it's so bad, the little "smoothing" pad does literally nothing so it's lifted off the body work, is there a way of removing that? I think if i can remove the primer i'd be able to get them polished out.



    thanks!!!

    Start looking at Meguiars Scratch X for correcting the paint. Not too aggresive either .

    For primer, I would carefully use T-cut. Scratch X if a mild abrasive polish which should be good enough to remove swirls by hand if worked enough. You considered machine polishing?

    i've never looked into it mate - not even any sort of detailing, i'm a bit weiry of not being able to do it :( dont want to make even more of a mess of my car :( lol

    So do you think "for now" i should:
    1. Clean the car up with a body shampoo (or something)
    2. Carefully tcut the primered area(s)
    3. Scratch X the area after tcutting?

    I bought the JML stuff on impulse to remove scratches on my Boxster before I sold it. The car was black and the product was ok.
    I just bought an E46 Touring in silver that had scratches the length of the roof (car wash damage im sure). JML Stuff polished them out a treat, im really impressed.
    Think the result depends on two things;

    1) The colour of your car
    2) How deep the scratches are

    TITAN SILVER! - quite deep in some occasions but i'll try and polish them out - if that doesnt work then ill get them sorted at the body shop.

    do you think the JML stuff would remove primer? (i want it too)

    ive got that meguairs scratch x 2.0 remover, paid £8 for it and am not especially impressed, doesnt seem to do anything!!

    i only wanted it for removing some very light scratches on the wing mirror cases and around the door locks and it really didnt have the desired effect!

    probably not much better than t-cut or any other so called "scratch remover" in my opinion!

    on another note though meguairs tech 2.0 wax is brilliant!! definitely took my mind off the annoying little scratches on the car!!
