Default Car Vandalism!

As i have mentioned earlier i got my accord just a month back ... it was indeed a pleasure to see the car parked in the garage and safe .. but a couple of days back i found scratches all over the car ... these were deliberate scratches as the were not caused by any vehicle there were scratches over the bonnet and the boot and on the fender which are practically not possible by vehicles... its really annoying to see people with such bad mentality ... the car loses its charm and you lose the charm of driving the car.. you start thinking is it really worth driving the beauty when others look upon your car with hatred ... the only place the car is parked is the office building garage and at home in the garage.... so the question doesnt arise of trespassers to scratch the car

its a shame .. i am really annoyed and am losing respect for people



my driver has purchased a nice polish will the scratches vanish with the polish please suggest some real nice products

thanks

Tell me bout it! thats really horrible, i had some fools name written all over my car one fine morning. that was so annoying. im sure u must be very furious. but i guess theres nothing much that can be done about that, yeah try to get some surface scrubbing done by a bodyshop technicican who will use a rubbing compound for that, they will atleast ligten up the scratch if not completely remove it.

If the scratches are deep, sorry to say but they'll not go. Try machine polish though, it may lighten them. Hand polish would do no good.

I feel your pain man. Happened to almost all my cars at some point.

The only way to deter these types is to have a shrill alarm on the car. Personally I hate cars that make a lot of noise, but you really don't have a choice when these losers don't have anything better to do than mess with your ride.

I think a Shock sensor as with Nippon central lock system should keep kids away from the car.
Some kids were playing with stones near the apartments we used live in earlier. My car was only 5 days old.. and a stone hit the car...that dent is still on my left rear door. Its so annoying.. but what i could do ...

Why can't they just make a scratch proof paint? I'd rather have an expensive coat of scratch proof paint than, keep getting the car painted over and over again.

I atleast get it painted at a garage next to my house, they're masters in matching colours and you'll never know the diff. Plus, it's much cheaper here.

I still have a smiley on my Vtec hood, thanks to a future M.F Hussain. LOL

- I did something like that too - I put Sugar and salt into the petrol tank of the Luna that my Pinci would ride. I was told that he would no longer be able to ride the Luna again .

I saw him come to the school bycycling . He was above 60+ then .

after that , I have had a lot of respect for him.

Dude, i know how it feels.
My merc has got a couple of scrathes.
If the scratches arent deep, they will go with a good rubbing compound or else a good paint job.
Really sad to see this happen.
I swear if i catch a person scratchin my car i will make him pay for the full paintjob and if he cant i will certainly make his life miserable.
really sad.
