    i foolishly tried to repair some scratches with one of those stupid halfords scratch repair kits. It has 3 pens (primer, paint and lacquer). I applied primer into scratches as advised and left them to harden. It looks terrible and is raised and I have lost all confidence in doing the work myself. I simply want to get rid of the primer altogether - even having the scratches as they were would be better than the mess I've made. Question - does anybody know a safe way to get primer off car paintwork without damaging paint? - I read somewhere white spirit will do it - frankly, scared to try it but need my mess sorted. Help.

    Im not sure about this one, but I wouldnt put white spirit on my paintwork!
    A decent bodyshop will be able to sort it out, shouldnt cost too much if its not a big scratch.Im sure someone will be along with more ideas
    Theres no need to post the same thread twice m8
