    hi, im looking for a colour specific polish for hair line scratches, not just a general polish. is there such a thing as a "le mans blue" polish? and if so where might i find it in the uk?

    cheers

    No such thing. Is the scratch very deep? If its not deep it should polish out with a machine polisher. If its too deep to polish out you could try masking it with some T-cut for blue cars.... Halford sell it. If you can feel it when you rub your finger nail over it chances are it aint gunna polish out..... DONT bother trying stuff like T-cut scratch remover as this will just marr the finish around the scratch

    I live in Teesside too..... If you want it machine polishing out give me a shout. If its only a very fine scratch the machine polisher will remove it completely.

    I dont do it as a profession no..... But I've machine polished my car from top to bottom so you'll be able to see that I know what I'm doing... If its only a tiny hairline scratch it will take about 5 mins to remove.... dont know what a bodyshop would charge you..... I'm off for a week now so if you want it doing just giz a shout....
