    Re: scratches

    IF its a scrape thats onto the bumper, wet sanding may be required, which is advanced detailing.

    If not, you can try Meguiars ScratchX with a High Tech Applicator Pad and work it in real good and see what it does.

    For the lights, use Meguiars PlastX with ANOTHER High Tech Applicator Pad (they're Meguiars of course, theyre 2 for 2.99, or 2 for 1.50 at Walmart) and work it in REALLY good.

    Re: scratches

    Before you take it upon your self to just attack those scratches, consider the following, always use the LEAST aggressvie approach first, you can always go up a notch, but if you start to strong you could do irreversable damage. also, if you have don't have a PC you will be limited as to what you can accomplish by hand. stay away from a rotary. use a light cut cleaner polish first if you are going by hand, use a terri pad and go in side to side motion over the scratch. see how that improves it. Next step up, is a PC, yellow pad and the same product, (sometimes using a different applicator will produced difference results.) always remove product with a micro fiber towel. if you don't see improvement after your hand application, and don't own a PC contact a pro near you. If it were me I wouldn't charge you anything, because it would take a few minutes. PM me for more info if needed. Best Gary
