Good morning. Yes things are going to warm up for the weekend.(short lived) The other day while back up in my driveway. Did not cut it sharp enough and hit the end of the building. But left a scratches on the car. Remember the last time this happen on another car. Went to the body shop to have a look. He looked at me and said be right back. He had a cloth saturated with something. Rub the marking viola.It was gone. So yesterday went to see him and fixed it again. Ask him what do you use.Simple,Lacquer thinner Yes it worked again.So today went out to buy some to keep on hand. If anyone here have scratches on your car.Try this.You will be amazed. I was and so happy to get this tip.Want to share it with you. photo is mine

I'm surprised he told you! He can't charge you for making it look as good as new now!

@amadeo I've heard that but never tried it. My dad had a remedy to prevent rust. Now days you would have a hard time doing it though. He would change his own oil then save it. Once he had a couple changes worth of used oil he would pour it into the door frames and other places he could get to and it prevented rust! One vehicle he had was always outside but had no rust after 10 years. It still looked like new! Living in snow country that amazed some people.

That seems odd I wonder how it works. Melts the paint a little so it covers the scratch? Hmmm

Thanks for the tip. We scratched our black car driving on a very narrow track recently. It would be great if this works.
