this morning (friday) i came out of my apartment to go pick up my gf from class and i see my car keyed!! 6 inches long and its deep. Man what the hell, some people have stupid affinities to scion. WTF and then I park my car near the bus stop and when i come back from class there's a red scratch. OMG i'm gonna go crazy. Is there a car cover for the tC yet? cause i'm ready to buy one.

That's horrible. I'm always afraid I'm going to come out to find a huge scratch from some jealous #######. I'm really sorry...

i also just found a scratch about 2.5 inches long but not deep THANK GOD!.. u can only notice it if you're lookin at it from an angle and not straight on which is a good thing. i'm hoping to be able to buff it out later with zaino..

what did u use to buff it out? or will that worsen my scratch?
No I don't think that buffing will worsen the scratch but it's kinda hard to say what you need to do without seeing the scratch. If it's past the paint and you can see primer or metal then buffing will not help.

I used Meguiar's DACP (dual action cleaner/polish) with an orbital buffer. It took all of five minutes and the scratch was completely gone.


moogoo- If you are talking about Z-5, I believe it only hides scratches,swirls, etc. and doesn't remove them. I don't think that it contains any abbrasives.
