    Default Battlescars

    So my car is coming up to two years old around the end of February and these are the battlescars I've picked up over the last two years.

    Well, I can only see one - and we have the same with feet hitting the door because it's so frigging big opening it fully takes all day

    Has it really been two years? I'm getting older even faster than I thought.

    You mean the scratch on the door. I tried to display the photos in order so that the worst was at the top.

    The scratch on the door came second because if you go close up on the first photo it looks far worse like this...

    I can only see some dirt splashes there. But I know it can be hard to get scratches to show on photos.

    You'll have to put a ring round the offence.

    They’re not dirt splashes, they won’t come off no matter how hard I try to remove them.

    Get some colour cut compound to them - they will come out.

    Have you tried white spirit or meths? I find one of those will usually shift most stains eventually.

    Otherwise a cutting compound as suggested above, but you are taking 'car' off at that stage.

    If I put my finger on them I can’t feel anything, I don’t know if that makes any difference.
