Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

be very very very carefull with it brake, it works by lightly sanding off a fine layer of paint !

Wash the car, dry it, apply a pea size amount to a cloth and work in circular motions, make sure you do not spend to much time on one area !

Allow plenty of time for this job, if you do half a job it will look awful !

I would wash it again once i have finished, then wax/polish the car.

Oh ..... don't do it if you're car has metallic paint !

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

LOL! This has reminded me of a bloke who used to live near me a few years ago... he had a bright red Ford Capri, which he lovingly spent almost the whole of Sunday morning pampering... a few months down the line the poor s*d had T-Cut all the red paint off his bonnet!! yikes

The moral of the story... don't use it too often!

I think there is a colour matched version of it as well, although I don't know if that works the same as the original stuff  :?.

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

alright then sad ah - the car is silver, i assume therefore its metallic, looks it

what do i do then. got some light scratches on the front wing where i *ahem* had a minor disagreement with a tree sad So how can i get theses scratches out, they don't look nice, very few people can see them, but in the right light i can. They are fairly light, but obviously don't want scratches on the car sad

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

If its metallic than there isn't a lot you can do other than getting a professional to re-lacquer the car, could be pricey, but i would get some one to price it for you.

don't t - cut, you will just remove more lacquer and make it worse.

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

I've just had a quick look on the net (with the help of Mr Google) and seen that a variant of T Cut  is sold,called Car Plan T Cut Colourfast and they sell that in Silver; so I don't know if that is an abrasive like the original product, or if that more "fills" the scratch, (if you know what I mean) and would be more suitable for your needs. :?

Or maybe, as Mark says, give someone like these guys a shout. http://www.chipsaway.co.uk/repair/chipsaway.asp

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

Have you tried a good wax polish. The wax might just fill the scratches enough to hide them. Also check if it is metallic, just cos its silver doesn't necessarily mean that it is . Check with dealer. Have to be very careful with touch up paint, looks horrible if not done well.

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

Haven't done anything to it yet because i don't want to ruin it lol

it looks pretty metallic like paint, when ya look closely at it.
Might be off to Halfords to buy some wax after school tomorrow. All i know is the paint is called moonshine silver. Think my cousin might have said it was metallic when he got my new mirror done after the dustcart incident i had sad Stupid tree eh, and grrr, why'd the neighbour cut it all jagged, pmsl. Was alright before he decided to prune it, not his fault i got up close and personal with a tree, but not amused at all, cos my cars scratched sad

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

If the scratches are very fine the wax might just hide them. Won't be able to touch up with the wax on though. Good luck.

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

If the scratches are light... a polish might just hide them?  especially if you get a coloured polish...

Did someone already suggest that?!!

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

If the polish doesn't work the only way to try T Cut is to try it somewhere that doesn't show iike under the bonnet or in the boot.

Re: HELLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP T-cut

thanks guys for the advice. Mum managed to get most of it out with a polish, phew. Can barely see them now smile bit more polishing and doubt they'll be visible at all unless you deliberately go really close. I miss them 99% of time when i look now, they are very hard to see now smile
