    I'll be getting a 97 ex coupe possibly in the next 2 days, its green but I'm getting it about 5k below kbb and it has some white scuffs on it from a white car hitting it repeatedly in the parking lot at this guys work from the car that parks next to him everyday. I have attached a pic below. It has some scratches on it and the rear bumper is cracked and sorta off in the pic but that will get replaced with a brand new painted one that matches the color of the car and hopefully the bumper will be baked. What do you suggest I use on the car scott to get the marks off of it and shine it up? I know I want to use s100 on it but other then that what products should I use before hand to give it a good clean and take the marks off or as much of them that aren't scratches and make this baby shine?

    DAC/P and 81 Speed Glaze should take it out if it's just paint transfer.

    Also right above the metal clip there is a dent I need to hammer out, you can see it in the pic there where the impression is.

    I agree with EMT-Start with Meguiars #83 DACP or #80 Speed Glaze. Meguiars ScratchX is very good at removing door ding paint transfers too. Follow with a good glaze like Clearkote's Vanilla Moose and top with S100 or for a very similar look and better durability, Meguiars #16 Pro Paste Wax.

    For Meguiars products, go to www.meguiars.com and use the dealer locator to find a pro products distributor in your area. You can get Clearkote products at www.clearkote.net or www.pakshak.com (and Pakshak has great microfiber towels).

    bad news, I didn't get the car :( the guy was an ass and kept saying he'd sell it to me after this person looks at it and when they didn't want it he'd let other people except me. Such is life, on to looking for another car again.
