Are you selling this stuff? That's pretty cool if it works. Also if it lasts.

it does work pretty well...

it is a standard Meguires product - sold in a tube - can find at most every auto parts store I've been in - usually near the polish and rubbing compounds...

It is universal... almost like wax. I must agree that it works very well. One of the best tools in my car cleaning kit.

It work really well for surface level scratches, swirl marks, etc. I.e., it won't fix your paint if someone key's it. Basically it is a very fine abrasive. When I debadged my trunk, I had all sorts of small scratches from scraping off the adhesive. After using ScratchX, you wouldn't be able to tell that the badging was ever there.

Oh yeah...make sure you shake the tube before using it, otherwise it comes out as a runny white liquid.

NO I'm not selling it I just wanted you guys/chic's to know that it works to take out scratches.

and as far as two WRX's if only I was that lucky.

Just a heads up it took 3 coats to get it to completly go away but only took about 10 min. to do.

I'm just unsure of how this product comes. When you say tube, do you mean a small tube for some scratches here and there? Or can I buff my hood with it? My hood is terrible at the moment and waxing is not helping at all. Los of surface scratches just the clear coat ones that make the car look "hazy".

It is clear coat safe. It comes in a little black tube. Like sun tan lotion tube. I saw a meguires package deal at Wal-Mart last night, it was 50$ of meguires stuff(including scratch X) for 19.99. If I didn't already have half of the stuff I would have bought it.

This stuff is to prep your paint before you wax, to clean and set the surface up to take a topcoat of wax. Just be careful if you use it to rub in long strokes very lightly because by digging in you may actually be making new marks. Just go easy. And you need to wash the car before using it, then be sure to put wax over it. Go to autopia-forums.com for real in-depth on waxing and detailing.
