    Default Scratch on bonnet - Black GLI

    Hello,

    I have a black GLI and yesterday when I parked a car somewhere and returned back, I found two scratches on the bonnet. They are around 10 cm long but are invisible from two, three meters. In short, they are long but thin. Is there any way to fix the scratches ?

    Thanks

    Try gliding your nail over the scratches perpendicularly and see/feel if there is any resistance to the nail. That will determine the depth of the scratch or the damage to the clear coat/paint. Hopefully these could be removed but nothing can be said for certain until you post few closeup high resolution pics.

    I have did as you said, but they are so thin that my finger nail can't catch them. They are white but they are like hair-like thin. I don't have any camera right now and will post the photos as soon as possible.

    I showed them to two local workshop painters. One of them said he will take Rs. 500 and make them invisible using compound. The other one said that I shouldn't apply paint or anything over it and just drive the car as they are invisible from two, three feet. They are thin, but white. I don't even know how could someone actually scratch like this. Usually people key the car, but its not key.

    So can you please guide if these thin scratches (they are white though) can be removed?
