    Good job...too bad it was a Pearl / metallic, otherwise it'd be much easier to hide.

    Like Joe said, the pearl paints are much harder to touch up, but you did a great job.

    Just wondering, do you have any recently scorned ex-girlfriends? They can be viscious (or so I hear).

    You have inspired me to take care of my paint scratches, not made by ignorant a-holes. Great job!

    I still think these should be legal in the USA, rig them to go off with your car alarm, or when a metal object (like a key, or screwdriver) makes contact. :D

    I'm going to edit your first post and give this a title with a blue clickable link to make it easier for everyone to share on our forum every time someone asks how to fix a deep key scratch.

    Wow thank you for encouragement Mike! This is such an honor!

    Yeah especially when my clear coat is a chameleon clear coat that changes color under the sun. If it is solid white, it can be really close to original condition.

    This technique can work on the car you bring to the supermarket. But I would call the insurance company about that one. It is time for paint. That could break an owners heart. Clearly the Devil at his best. The repair was quite impressive to say the least. Largely, detailing and polishing are comprised of intense patience....that is why it is a virtue.

    No, no, no, no. You went about this all wrong. The first thing I would do is get a baseball and track the MF down who did it. Then after a healthy beating I would proceed as you did.

    Nice job by the way.
