Buffing Compound?

This past Sunday, I went to Green Ridge State Park with some other guys here at TW for about 7 hours of off-roading… Needless to say – my truck was rather dirty.

On the way home, my fiancée called me an invited me to meet her at Hardtimes Café to hang out with her and her GF’s… I obliged and parked my truck.

After I had been there for a few minutes and had told them of how I victoriously conquered the trails and slayed dragons in the forest… LOL - one of the girls (who is my fiancées roommate) wanted to see the truck in all of it’s muddy glory and she goes out to look at it - while sit there with my fiancée and all her other GFs.

The night ends around midnight and I head home.

I wake up around 9 and go out to start the arduous process of washing my truck and turns out that little bitch wrote in the mud/dirt that was on my truck while I was parked at HardTimes. All down the sides of it were wave designs and on the hood – the standard “Wash Me Please” and “Katie and Don forever” etc. bullshit.

So I wasn’t quite pissed yet – seeing that it was a joke and I still needed to wash it and see if there were any damages from any off-roading. I washed my truck THREE times… and finally got her clean… to my surprise – there was not a single scratch on the truck from off-roading.

However, scratched into the paint were the wave designs (side of truck) and all of the aforementioned words (on the hood)…

Now, I have had this truck for three years and it has 70k miles on it…. And after commuting to DC every day (1 hr each way), after all those miles, after carefully parking every time I park, after all the times that I carefully opened the door when in a tight spot – not a single scratch until now!!!!

Let’s just say I was livid!

I started it last night and for the most part got a lot of the scratches out… but can anyone recommend any buffing compounds that I can use to buff it out? Meanwhile, I am going to try not to kill her.

Can you feel the scratches with your fingernail?
If so, you might have to wet sand then buff.
If not, use a fine grit polish to remove (a fine grit polish, you should not feel much grit when rubbing between fingers)

Let me know how it comes out.

You would never be able to convince me your truck has 70k on it from the pictures, it is clean!
