Best/Recommended Products to remove scratches??

Hi Everyone,

Any recommended products to remove scratches?? The scratches I have are more than just swirl marks.

I've used a number of products that range in price from $5-20 with no success. Many of them were just a wax or rubbing compound that just didn't work.

I was going to try a product called "Dr. ColorChip" for $60.
Dr.ColorChip Custom Automotive Touch-Up Paint Kit - Dr. ColorChip: Automotive Paint Chip Repair Systems

Any product I use will probably require OEM paint. I'm open to all recommendations!!

I have the same problem. I scratched my "B" area when putting my top back on.
I used some stuff in a yellow bottle,,, something like "scratch out". I'll check later. It helped, but the problem may be too deep.

I'm open to other suggestions.

I can't recall the name but 3M makes a scratch removal system with polishes and pads.

Works pretty good.

I like Chemical Guys stuff. Here is a nice thread that I put together when my wagon got owned by a dog:

Having a good dual action buffer helps tremendously.

I used the Dr Color Chip on my Challenger and was very happy with the result. Not 100% undetectable on close inspection but pretty damn close.

I've had pretty good success with 3M Rubbing Compound. It's the black bottle with red lettering.
