Remember before your car was purchased, your car was still covered with white film all over. After you purchase it, they remove and prep the car before handing over the hands.

I recently notice that there are two minor marks in the rear that can only be view in bright lighting and I'm not sure what's best to remove these marks? I took it back to the dealer once back in October to remove similar marks but I do not wanna drive all the way there ago to remove there 'marks' What's a good product to remove this.

p.s I remember using Sratch Doctor back in October, it does not work.

3M Rubbing Compound

2 summers ago I had a big scuff on my bumper and took my car to my repair shop. I thought I needed to repaint my whole bumper but they came to me with this 3M rubbing solution bottle and started to rub the scuff right off the bumper. I tried everything and a lot of elbow grease to get that scuff off and nothing happened. But this 3M stuff took 10 seconds to get that off. It saved me $150! I was amazed.

Something like this: 3M Rubbing Compound

I might have to give this stuff a try. I have 2 bottles of 3M rubbing compound at home of 2 different grits.

Right now I use TurtleWax bug & tar remover which works very well for removing shredded tire debris from the lower body panels. I also used it on the front bumper when I went of track at CMP & scuffed my front bumper on the white posts on the inside of turn 8....it proved to do a pretty good job until I got my bumper repaired & painted.

Wal-Mart or Canadian Tires does not sell...where can you buy this. All the places online sell this for 10 bucks but shipping is 15....any cheaper places people know of?

Eric, I have quite a few polishes that can be used by hand with a foam or microfiber applicator. Just let me know when you want it and we can meet and I'll give you a few ounces which should do you. Have you tried claying the car by any chance? Also if you're looking for decent products check out eShine Canada, Car, Wax, Polish, Polisher, Tire Dressings, Detailing Supplies, RV, Truck, Boat, Automotive, upholstery, marine, convertible, Microfiber as Chris carries a wide variety of detailing products and he can have an order to you basically the next day.

I'm glad it worked out for you Eric. However do be careful with rubbing compound as it can be very aggressive. I've seen people scratch the clear coat or go right through to the base with that stuff. If you're ever in doubt about paint correction go to a detailer. That's what we're here for and we have the experience in scratch removal and paint correction.
