Just washed my RED pride and joy and found a half inch scratch slap bang in the middle of the drivers door. Any suggestions for removing. I can feel it when I run my finger over it so it's more than a surface scratch.
Think a stone must have flicked up.

can you feel it with your finger nail? If so the likelyhood is it won't polish out. Scratch X, autglym Super resin Polish and Poorboys Black hole have fillers in them which may help mask the scratch.If you you might able to cover it with a touch up paint and polish.

Thanks for the replies. Think I'm going to try either the autoglym renovator or scratch x.
I'll let you know how I get on.

There definitely an issue with the softness of Nissan paint.

Ive just traded in my red Juke. Had done 3000 miles, only a handful of these on motorways, the majority round town/quiet A roads. It had half a dozen chips on the front bumper/bonnet and quite a bad case of "nappy rash" on the bottom of the front doors, caused by gravel "scuffing" the lacquer when being thrown up by the front wheels - I think front mudflaps are ESSENTIAL for Jukes, if your as fussy about paintwork as I am.

In comparison, Ive just pick up a Ford Kuga same age/mileage as the Juke. Has 2 tiny stonechips on the bumper and nothing else. Has definitely weathered much much better than the Juke. I am certain that this is down to the harder lacquer.
Ive been working on it all afternoon - wash, paint correction (slight swirls - erased with menzerna compound) clay bar entire car, then add a layer of Autoglym lifeshine. Tomorrow will be a coat of collinite wax. Whilst I was doing this, wifehoovered, cleaned interior dash/windows etc and "fed" the leather seats! so much for a car that had been valeted on collection!

Even when our Juke was new,once we got it home, wecleaned it properly!!!

Sad, I know, but if you look after your cars and want the wax/sealant to work properly, you MUST have a totally clean and smooth paint surface to work from and the only way to get this isby detailing if necessary, otherwise a clay bar (essential even on brand new cars!).

**** - why didnt I think of that?? Of course, had I got the car supagarded, I wouldnt have got the stonechips/nappyrash on my Juke, as - and we all know this - supagard puts an "invisible force field" around the car, meaning you never have to wash, wax or even wipe the car ever again!!


**** you Deks....
....I dont get this level of abuse on the kuga forums....
......mind you they are a bit of a boring bunch, not much other than standard straight down the line posts....

what will really amuse me is when someone tells you actually the car was supagarded when it was new. Now that would be funny

G3 is used by bodyshops when polishing up small blemishes in paint you can also use G7 which isnt as harsh as JOH says it works I ve polished many a scratch out with G3 even a branch scratch across the wing on my Juke
