  1. Cosmetic

    Just came out from dinner where I parked away from everyone to find somebody had dinged my door and knocked paint off, any input on fixing it myself or taking it somewhere and price difference for either is greatly appreciated
  2. Hey everyone, I just wanted to share my experience using Meguiar’s ultimate compound on a mild scratch I had on the truck when purchased. It was really hard to get good pictures with the iPhone, but I think it shows a pretty good before and after. And yes, in case you’re wondering, the scratch is in the exact same spot in both pictures. It made a huge difference. And with no micro scratches left on the clear coat around the scratch either. There is a residual ‘shadow’ of the scratch still in the clear coat, but it is in no way visible unless pointed out to you. It drove me crazy, as every time I would walk up to the truck it would catch my eye. This only took four minutes to do with an applicator sponge, and a light wipe down after with a microfibre towel. And I have a ton of the product left to use for probably the lifetime of the vehicle. I sold Meguiar’s years ago at a shop I worked at, and the stuff has never let me down. Cheers all!
  3. 2 yr old got it with a broom the other day while he was trying to clean up the driveway. It does taper out and get lighter as it continues along the fender. But it was pretty much my fault because I watched him hit my step bars first and thought to myself that he was getting awfully close to my truck. Lesson learned I guess. My question is, can I fix this by hand and if so, what products exactly do i need to get? I did try some Scratch-X on it already, but only with a terry cloth towel.
  4. So, yesterday morning I walk out to my truck to head over to the gym and noticed a scratch underneath the driver front door. This truck has absolutely no dings nor scratches on it even with 86K miles on the odometer. I couldn't believe what I was seeing ........ and then I noticed the scratch on the fender and eventually all the way around the entire truck. They didn't touch the hood or the bumpers, but everything else suffered damage. I wanted to cry ...... but, I didn't! I don't tend to piss people off (or at least not intentionally). Even so, this is way above and beyond what I might even do if I were really upset. Brought it to a body shop for an estimate (Caliber Collision ....... great work in the past) and am being told that these scratches all go "into" the metal panels. Meaning the metal/aluminum is going to have to be sanded to remove the grooves. Of course, the truck is getting a complete paint job at a price of $7K. The shop says the work will take about a month to be completed. Thing of it is is that I have dash cams mounted to the windshield and rear window. The front camera caught someone quickly walk by the front and turn toward the passenger side. The rear camera caught the same thing, but it looks like they were trying to stay low/out of sight. Maybe they knew the cameras were there? Anyway, here's the damage ........
  5. Scratch pen

    I have some small scratches on my car its not that someone while notice it but it irritates me. So i did a little bit of research and i saw this scratch pen which seemed very easy to use. The only thing is i read some comments that is a real disaster and make the scratch only worse, so my question was does anyone here have used this or knows something else that is easy to use.
  6. Some reason i do stupid things with new stuff. For someone who takes care of their things very well these things shouldn't happen. Long story short unloading a fourwheeler from a trailer i leaned my .308 against the tailgate and it fell down. The edge of the barrel was leaning against the tailgate and left this.. So will it buff out? I mean i guess this is part of the downside to having a dark truck.. but damn i was tired of white. Just got done washing it, and i'm noticing more and more chips, scratches, etc. Don't know how half of them got there. F it i guess. Going to have to get used to it regardless.
  7. This is my first post and I havent seen any other post about deep scratchs. I live in upstate NY and we had a snow storm come through. I was clearing my drive way and had to move some snow in my truck. I ended up hitting the side of my truck with my snow shovel and it left a pretty good size scratch in the rear passager fender. Scratch is down to the metal 2-3" long. Tried to clean it up with some rubbing compound and polish compound. Can't leave it the way it is. This truck is my baby. Ive heard of people wet sanding but with the scratch being down to the metal I am not sure it would do any good. I was thinking about touch up paint then rubbing compound and polish to blend it in better. I will post pictures as soon as I can.
