The wife and I went down to PA last weekend to visit the inlaws only to have their dogs jump up on the side of my truck! Now I have some nice long scratches down my rear driver's side door. Looks like the scratches are mostly just in the clearcoat. On my next days off I was planning on detailing the truck. Here's the process I was going to use:
2. Compound the scratches out
3. Clay bar
4. Wash/dry again
Does this sound about right? I've never used a clay bar, but it sounds like an easy task.
Well the clay bar wont really get the scrathes out, it gets rid of all the dirt and crap like that. Unless you use a really good clay bar, I used the one out of the Mothers kit. They do sell heavy duty clay bars out there, but you would have to get them from a detailing shop or online somewhere.
I think that combonation you have there will probably get all the scratches out. I would efinitely try that. When I used a paste wax it got all the little scratches out
Thanks for the suggestions! I was hoping that a good clearcoat safe compound would take the scratches out, and that the clay bar would help too as well as clean up the rest of the truck. Know of any good compounds?
I used the Meguires MXT paste wax on my truck. It worked really well.
I would take a look online instead of in your auto parts stores. You can find some really good compounds out there. Like Chemical guys, Poor Boy and a bunch of other wicked quality products.
If your truck is Black than I would suggest looking at Turtle Wax, they have a Black Box kit that will take all scratches out, since it has black pigment in it
