    scratchx 2.0?

    Sure minor blemishes it will remove. If you can feel it with your finger it may not totally remove it. It does work though. a good coat of wax later it will be for the most part invisible even if you can still feel it.

    Look at the bright side at least it's on the roof. Difficult to see the roof on these trucks.

    Scratch x works great. Just follow directions on package. Then rewax where you used scratch x. I highly recommend meguiars tech wax 26.

    BTW what are you doing waxing your truck at such hours, they need their sleep too :)

    thanks i'll try scratch x and wax with nxt. it's just that i like to keep the car looking good and when i scratched it, i felt like like it's damaged goods, hehe. but like you said, it's on the roof and i can't see it. p.s. where can i find #26 or whatever # wax that is? is that synthetic or carnauba? just switched from gold class to nxt and i like nxt better for durability and it doesn't stain the trim.

    That is the same wax I use.here. I just found it in a regular automotive place. It's not rare. I think it's synthetic. I don't think it stains trim but I'm carefull to not get it on there anyway. It seems to last well. It gives a nice dark rich polish Side by side you can see the difference.. Pretty good really easy to work with.
