Scratches

03 December 2012 - 05:35 PM

Hey,
After finally getting a day off and a chance to have a proper look at my car today, i decided to look into removing some of the scratches that it had on from the previous owner. I used some Meguiars Scratch X on them. On the smaller scratches it worked brilliantly, they can barely be seen at all now :D but some of the scratches are deeper than i first thought so therefore are still present. What would be the best way of getting rid of these or making them less visible?
Thanks

(sorry for any silly questions i may post, im starting from a severe lack of car knowledge aha)

First Car

30 November 2012 - 05:10 PM

Hi Everyone
My names Matt
Last week i bought my first car, a dark green V reg Fiesta.
The most important thing for me is that it gets me from A to B, and the few areas that there are to work on gives me a bit of a project to work on at the same time. It seems like a really nice little car, and with a bit of TLC could look really nice too.
-Firstly, there are several areas of rust in various places (ill attach photos) and i was wondering if there was any way that id be able to get rid of them myself, or would it be a workshop job?
-Secondly, there are a few scratches on the bonnet, what is the best way to remove them/cover them if there are not very deep.
-CDs play fine on the stereo, but when i try to put the radio on it doesnt pick up any stations and only static can be heard.
-After its been driving for a while, the temperature control only blows out hot air
-The passenger side door it very stiff when opening and closing, will putting some WD-40 on there do the trick?
I think that is it for now, if i find anything else i will add it at a later point :P
Thanks in advance for any ideas or solutions any of you may have
Matt
