    My car was keyed a while ago. I read a method of fixing minor scratches such as these where I would use touch up paint and dab it into the scatch. Then, after about a week, wet sand the area. I have a 2000 grit wet sanding bar, that I tried on a small area, and it was unsuccessful. I made sure to lube the area well with soapy water. Does anyone have advice on how I should be doing this for best results?

    Honestly, wet sanding is not for the beginner. Besides, 2000 grit might not be aggressive enough for what you are trying to do. You also need to make sure you do not sand through the clear coat and into the base coat.

    Meguiars has a wet sanding system. You might want to check out their website then e-mail them with specific questions.

    The key to wetsanding is to sand in the same direction.

    side to side or up down

    other than that get a professional to do it!

    not worth the money you save if you fuck up!
