    For the scratch, it will depend how deep it is. Most of the times, if (moving your finger nail across the scratch) and it gets stuck in it, its deep enough to get it out altogether without compromising the clear coat.
    If its not deep, a compound/polish would remove it.
    If it is deep, then measures are usually taken like filling in the scratch with matching paint, wet sanding that area and then polish it out.

    Post up some pictures of the scratch from various angles to get clarity on the depth of it. I can refer you to a detailer in Lahore who can help you with its removal (or atleast tone it down if it is deep).

    I am not from Lahore, I know a few detailers but not painters. You should ask on the car care and detailing dreams thread and someone from lahore will tell you.

    Sdk927 and usmanuetian go to Sultan Autos on the back side of National Bank and Pioneer Motors Jail Road. (Bilkul sath gali kay end per)

    @ahmad_yar bhai had recommended me once. Sultan painted two 2"X4" pieces on the car and now even i can not tell wat were the locations.
