OK, this thread used to be 5 pages deep. Anyway, DetailDan, Big A, and others, if you read this maybe you will respond otherwise I will go to your display threads and post. I have a vertical scratch to the primer. I have read this instruction set over and over so I think I have it. Yes, I have a rotary. The scratch is vertical above the passenger rear wheel well about 6 inches from the edge up in the middle of the wheel well. My questions are: When does the clear go on? Since it is a vertical scratch do I need to leave the paint thick? Does the bottom of the scratch need prepping other than to clean with alcohol? Any need to use primer? No, it is not down to the metal but close. It seems to me that if clear is not used then there will always be a shadow.

When In Doubt...Charge!
