I saw a Billy Mays commercial that advertised Simoniz fix it pro. It is for clear coat scratches. Has anyone tried that?

I have seen that, too and wondered the same thing, does it really work or is it just too good to be true?

Amen to not knowing who it was, probably saved their miserable life!

As a professional detailer, a good rule of thumb I use for scratches is if you can feel it with your fingernail, it is probably through the CC and is too deep to completely fix through polishing. Notice I said "completely". Even scratches that are through the CC can have their appearance reduced through polishing to the point where they are barely noticeable. For most customers, this is completely acceptable. For others, a complete repair is required. Then, your other option is to get some touch-up paint. There is a great DIY tutorial somewhere on repairing scratches. I'll look it up.

If your Ram is prone to scratches and/or you're serious about your trucks appearance I would recommend getting a Porter Cable 7424XP (PC for short in the detailing biz) and a small assortment of pads and high quality polishes. I have a link to a retailer, but I'm not sure if it's against the rules to post it. But I'm more than glad to tutor anyone who's serious about detailing their ride.

Mequiars makes some great stuff. Just a simple cut, wax and polish should do the trick.
