This is a true statement but you are really going to have to work at polishing and using a aggressive polish with a rotary buffer to accomplish this....your clear coat is about 3 millimeters thick....the scratches on the surface are hair like thin the reason they look so big is the reflection from the paint...The clear is magnifying off the paint....I use a very mild polish on my black 540 about 6 times a year some by hand other times with a buffer..again as I said you are not going to burn threw the clear by hand all that easy, unless you are using allot of pressure and an aggressive compound then that could be possible

Its Going To Cost How Much???????
