    Does anyone know where I can get some deep scratches fixed on my car.I've an 03 punto which I'm hoping to sell but last week some ass scratched it in the crescent shopping centre. Damage is on the front body coloured bumper but it is not really that bad

    Any ideas on what it would cost, basically 3/4 3 inch lond deepish marks someone did with a nail or screwdriver I think

    You could try yourself.

    Get some touch-up the same colour (obviously) and apply one coat at a time, leaving time for the coats to set in between. When slightly proud of the surface sand back down with the finest wet and dry and then give a coat of clear.

    Or something like that. :)

    ever see the halfords ad before Top Gear on Dave?
    Takes 5 seconds.. a quick buff with a buffer and a spray.. Im sure its a realistic time, its on TV :D

    sure I have, but I will only make it worse if I do that. Lets just say I'm not very good with my hands
