Excellent Paint Scratch Fixer
Lots of pro & con reports on Meguires "Scratch X 2.0".
I believe most negative comments come from not using it properly! The directions are not excellent.
I found this 'How to use it' testimonial on line and it has worked miracles for me........
"Notice I do not say 'Scratch X' is a scratch remover?
You cant "remove" what isnt there! A scratch is a void.
Im an auto detailer. I have used Meguiars products for 20 yrs and Scratch-X (2.0) is great.
YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT.
Scratch-X is NOT an abrasive polish. It is more of a glaze. Scratch-X is a "finesse product".
It will save your butt on almost ANY size scratch or blemish that isn't through the base coat of color.
The product "burnishes" the paint back into shape rather than rubbing it away - this is what makes it SOOOO good in the right hands.
-Use a microfiber cloth. Anything else will put more scratches in the finish then you are trying to remove.
-Create a little pad for yourself so you can apply pressure without hand cramping.
-Put a nickle size dallop on the center of your "pad".
-Rub......rub against the scratch criss crossing the scratch line. DO NOT GO WITH THE SCRATCH.
-When you feel the pad drying out, put more product on. Dont rub dry.
-Hard pressure and elbow grease is only at first, lighten up your pressure when you see the scratch starting to disappear. FINESSE.
For DEEP scratches it will be impossible to "level" the scratch or make it disappear. Instead, you will soften the hard edges and smooth it out so it is "invisible" from 3 feet away.
This is "minimizing" or "concealing" the scratch.
I have removed or concealed the most HEINOUS blemishes and cuts in fresh clearcoat.
Remember, FINESSE. If this is something you dont possess, seek a professional detailer.
This is a great, great product."
