Clear coat scratches

The car is white with a clear coat. How do you get rid of light scratches in the clear coat.

They are not real deep, but you can notice them if the light is right.

Any ideas anyone?

Re: Car polishes

You need to use a cutting compound, perhaps in 2 stages, from medium to fine. Then wax it.

If the cutters is too coarse it'll make it worse. By the sound of it a fine 'cut and polish' will do. Be sure you do it in the shade to help prevent whirls.

my dads ed fairmont ghia had the same sort of paint, and he managed to get light scratches out with just normal polish. give it a go first with normal polish, if that dont work, go with somthin stronger.

Re: Car polishes

Well I tried Kitten liquid cut and polish, and got rid of 90% of it.
