QUIXX Scratch Remover

I have seen a lot of complaints about how easy it is to scratch the paint on our TBirds. Up until recently it hadn't happened to me. Well when I was screwing in a plastic cap that I put in place of the bolt that goes on the rear fender when the full seat in on, I noticed that I must have been rubbing my finger nail on the paint. I scratched the paint pretty good and tried waxing it out but nothing worked. I went online and found a comparison test of scratch removers and the Quixx system won the comparison. So I went to Autozone and purchased the product.

I can say it works as advertised... no more scratches!! It comes with two tubes of liquid, one removes the scratch and the other is a polish. It also comes with a small piece of sandpaper and two clothes to apply the product. My scratch wasn't deep enough to require sanding. I'm now happy again as that scratch was making me nuts.

There are a number of products that will do the same. I have a few. Removing them has never been a problem....It's the fact they reappear the second you wipe the tank down again. Just wiping it down with a microfiber cloth re-applies them. polishing them out daily is the only solution, but if you did that you'd likely wear thru the clear coat within a year.

I find the best solution is to polish them out maybe once a month or so and in between use products that help cover them up rather then remove them. Mothers sealer/glaze rubbed into the paint (unlike the instructions which say wipe on, dry, wipe off) as you would with polish, then wiped off with some liquid performance spray cleaner/wax does a good job of hiding scratches till they get too much and time to polish again. really crappy paint. I wish they'd go back to REAL paint.
