Default Scratch Remover

Hey Guys I hate to say it but my new Baleno has got a scratch (about 5 inches) which is quite deep. About 6 months back a salesperson at a petrol pump did try to sell me a scratch remover. I did not buy it then (which I regret now).

Does anybody know any good brand of a scratch remover which really hides it from full view ?

I too had a similar query. I know some companies abroad make strips of the colour of your car which helps camouflage the scratch to a large extent.

Any know how something of that sort being available in India?

Cant say I know of any brands, but yes, there used to be salesmen at petrol pumps across NCR who would try and sell scratch removers among other wares. It came in a spray form.

My friend tried it on his maroon 800 as demo. The scratch did reduce visibly.
The spray wasnt of any known brand, and my friend did not buy it eventually.

I think your best bet would be to try out some accessory shops (or maybe petrol pumps). Get them to demo on some part of the car body which is not very visible first and then try it on the scratch.

All the best.

Scratch removers do not work. They can at max remove surface scratches & swirl marks.

Try a touchup paint. Check out www.compaint.com
U can do the touchup yourself.

Just apply grease around the area where you dont want the paint to smear.. and make a quick spray.. after it dries out, a little polish will make the scratch almost dissappear.
