car detailing advise please!


New member
Hi everyone,
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

My son dropped a spade on the bonnet (oh no, not the Skoda), none the less 2 decent marks. I got someone to come and fix it plus full detail, and $240 later its still there.

Thinking i knew better I got advise from an employee whom recommended a product (Meguires medium cut #7), and I now have 2 sections where the paint has been cut back. Can only be seen n certain angles when in sun.

What would you recommend to restore the bonnet paint so its all equal. The colour itself is metallic black.

Thanks again!
black is the worst... You could try and cut back the bonnet so the clear coat is the same level... then apply a decent wax/sealant to protect it..

Failing that, give the guys at waxit or car care products a call to see what they can do, or recommend.
