    Links don't work for me.

    That said, I'm going to take a stab in the dark and guess Meg's 105/205 and the Kevin Brown method would possibly be a good choice to try....

    the last time i attacked scratches like those, it was on a black solara that had snow cleared off of it with a shovel. the best i could do was with a LC yellow pad and OC and all it did was "soften" them up a bit.

    general rule i learned here; if you can catch the scratch with your fingernail, it's not going to come out with a buffer.

    Then after looking at the pics, I'll repeat what I said before: M105/205 and KB method with your PC-XP should knock that stuff out for the most part. :bigthumb:

    Wait, so the Kevin Brown method is simply just one of a few ways to properly use a polisher?

    I've been out of this detailing forum bzns for too long.

    Well, not so much properly use a polisher as properly use a type of polish. It's a technique that was specifically found to take the most effective use of Meguiar's new non-diminishing abrasive polishes (M105 and M205, D151).

    The way of polishing that most of us were/are familiar with was more applicable to the M8x-series polishes (DACP, Speed Glaze, etc.) that use diminishing abrasives.

    If you feel it's worth the expense, go with 3M Ultrafina (Ultrafine Machine Polish) and top with your favorite LSP.... otherwise go straight from 205 to your LSP.
