Default car keyed

any suggestions for removing scratch marks as a result of vandalism from keys? Mine is pretty deep, right into the primer and almost into the fender.

touch up paint layered over, let it dry properly.

wetsand with 1k grit, then polish with a DA/rotary buffer and wax.

My old mans car got keyed. It needed a whole new paint job. You might get lucky if you can wet sand it.

most likely a girl. i've never really dealt with guys who key cars. it's kinda gay to me. lol.

but yeah, like he said ^^ touch up paint in layers. wetsand, and polish. hopefully it's not like they were writing a book or something. if it's small it should be okay.

but if it's a panel like your fender or door, it can easily be repainted.

This may be some of an insurance claim for you...


Otherwise, I would not use something like 1000 grit on Subaru paint as it is way to soft and you will take A LOT of material off in a hurry plus leaving you with some very thick sanding scratches that you would have to remove.

Subaru paint is soft enough you might try something like polishing first, you would be VERY surprised at the marks we are able to get off on a lot of local Subarus without ever needing to wetsand or even get overly aggressive. Subaru paint while soft and brittle can be corrected significantly easier than many regular and harder paint types.


Are you taking your first steps by hand? Or are you using a polisher?

If by hand I would grab some swirlX or ultimate compound made by meguiars locally to see what kind of headway you can make first with a couple of applications.

Yeah, I tried to polish by hand first. I removed about half so far. I'll try touch up paint and then polish again.

my friend has had his EVO X keyed 4 times now.. lol he's not too popular with the ladies with his "surprise buttsex!!" tactics. every time it was down to the primer and there was no option but to get it repainted completely. if it's at the primer, wetsanding won't do you any good. but it sucks to see it happen, I hope you get it all taken care of. as well as finding out who did it and knocking their teeth in.
