    ...would it be possible to find out what would be necessary to fix it?

    Or if it even can be fixed without a complete repaint?

    Rule of thumb...if a scratch catches your fingernail, it can't be completely buffed out.

    Post a pic or two, but don't make it so big we can't tell what we are looking at.

    I have many, many scratches on my hood, front bumper, and fenders. All of them are deep (my fingernail catches). My front bumper also has these small black dots on them that are a bitch to get off. I have to sit there and scratch with my fingernail a few times very hard for them to come off, and even then they don't come off automatically

    I'm thinking the only way to remove the scratches is to wetsand? I tried Scratch-X but it didn't do shit. I'm thinking of wetsanding and putting on a clear bra

    after reading some more about my car, it seems that people have the same experience when applying bug remover. I think the clear coat is cracking :wtc:

    How did you apply ScratchX? Sometimes it takes 3-4 applications, and you really have to work it in. Use back and forth motions and rub that sucker untill the product breaks down. Wipe off, and try again, and again if necessary.

    It's kind of amazing what ScratchX will handle actually.
