It probably took about an hour to completely be done. The work itself doesn't take long at all. It's more of a waiting process for things to dry before you can wet sand, compound, wipe excess, etc. At this point...I've learned to work it into the rest of the detail. Thanks!!

I am definitely going to be trying this on my fathers Jeep Cherokee once it gets warmer outside

Cool. Good luck, you can buy the scratch filler at most auto accessory stores. I bought mine online.

:doh:

Detailing clay is non abrasive. How can something non abrasive remove a scratch?

I said I read it somewhere, on another forum. I haven't personally used it.

If the car is clear coated, you have to be careful about going through it. Otherwise you can use buffing compound or 1200 grit sand paper and then buffing compound. :xyxthumbs:

I read somewhere that a detailing clay can get rid of scratches, not sure if its reallll deep though.


Detailing Clay is for above surface bonded contaminants, not below surface defects.
