  • How to Polish small scratches out of Satin finish paint

    I have a Z800 which has the satin finish paint. If you try and polish any blemishes out of the paint you will turn it shiny (removing the satin finish)

    Are there any techniques to remove blemishes but leave the satin finish in tact??

    I was told by a prominent member that [MENTION=30080]RRossi[/MENTION] was the expert in this area, RRossi??

    depends on how deep the scratches are

    at the end of the day polishers/detailers can only do so much.

      Yeh, I know, I like the satin finish, but its going to be a challenge long term I think.

        UUMMMM

        satin or not

        you should be able to get 3M film to cover that shit so YOU don't scratch it in the first place...

        See RRossi ...too.

          Well,

          you can use the Swissvax Opaque range dedicated to Matte/Satin finishes to protect and maintain the shine/finish.


          I have removed light marks and scuffs with Swissvax Opaque Paint Cleaner, if this cant move it nothing will without stuffing it up and making it worse,

          so if there is a scratch/blemish or mark after using this product its game over and you need this guy - [MENTION=8418]potato[/MENTION] to repaint - simples.


          That's why its so important to use the right stuff in the first place to protect the finish as you cant buff or cut it out like a gloss paint.


          I hope this helps?
