    Washed my truck for the first time in about two months. Found a few scratches on driver rear door. Don’t feel deep at all. Just wax over them? Buff them out? Other options?

    Using wax or some other product that has fillers will only be temporary. Do you own a DA polisher or have access to one?

    Agree with above. If using a power polisher be careful as the clear coat on these vehicles is pretty thin and easy to burn through especially on convex edges

    Do these products work on plastics painted parts? Wife just sent me this where it appears her car got into a fight with a shopping cart.
