    Well, I've officially had my Scat Pack for five days and it got slightly damaged today.

    A nice little boy (not mine) decide to paw the hood, then drag his finger nails across my hood graphic (R/T black out on the center of the hood).

    Any tips on how to make the scratches any less obvious?

    Thanks.

    Are they surface scratches or deep scratches (almost down to the paint)?

    At the dealership we use a paste wax on striping. Buffing them lightly.

    Surface scratch on Decals

    Thanks!!
    I just stumbled upon this thread. My own German Shepard who knows better jumped up one day & I have surface scratches on my decals. It has bothered me. But I figured I was just stuck with having a once show car now screwed up & sratched car. Thor is not allowed to ride in my car. So, he knows better. I have a round buffing machine. Any suggestions for a product?

    I've tried a couple of products. One more to try, and if that doesn't work, a new hood decal should fix it.
