    Default Temporarily hide scratch

    My car recetly got scratched in a pillar. The back-left side, above the back tire and the damage is a lot and it goes up to the door. I have an event coming up and need to hide that temporarily? I am planning to get a paint job but not right now. Need a temporary fix, please let me know regardless of how stupid your idea is. I am attaching some pictures.Name:  1456848106974.jpg

    I know paint is the only option, I am not looking for perfection right now. I just temporarily want to make it less prominent! Yes the wrap paper idea is good. Please tell me if spray painting it would be good?

    If u r more serious for hiding it then get yourself (Turtle wax) colour enhancing polish with chipstik.
    It comes for specific color with chipstik. It's easily available in the market. If u r in lhr u can get it from hyperstar.

    What exactly will the polish do? Please remember I just need a temporary touch up. Will go for repaint later.

    Polish won't do anything..the chipstik will do the magic...it will mask the most of area...and will give u a temporary fix.

    Get it compounded and touchup paint for the time being, but don't use the desi compound, use a good one like Meguiar's Ultimate Compound.

    I know that the paint is transferred and I just use a rubbing polish to take that off. But this is not from another car, this is from a bloody pillar!

    I wasted 650 rupees xD
    The chipstik works okay but doesn't cover it up that well and I need to cover it up 100% to avoid corrosion of car body. Also, I couldn't find a chipstik alone, it came with a turtle wax paint restorer or something which is completely useless and doesn't work at all. There's like 500 ml of that **** xD
    Btw, the chipstik isn't working well on long scratches, and as the name is self-explanatory, it is for chip-offs and not scratches like these still, thanks for the suggestion!
    I'm still open for suggestions, it is still not fixed!

    If you wil get a repaint later then go for qalam touch up. Considering your scenario this would be the best solution

    Yes I got this suggestion from many people. Can I do it myself or should I get it done from somewhere? How much does the qalam cost, any idea?

    Yes you can do it yourself but better to take it to any Honda outlet, theyl charge a mere 200 for the job . The benefit youl hav with Honda would be good paint matching.

    Its nice to try different things. You have had a hands on experience with that product now with which you can help others now plus it was a good bet i reckon. If it had worked , you wouldnt hav needed ths paint touch up
