    I purchased my 2010 super white DCSB a couple months ago off a TW member and I noticed that behind ever door handle there was a shit load of scratches. So I went to my local Oreily and got some scratch remover formula. To my surprise, this thing actually worked great

    :thumbsup: I had the same issue when I bought mine. Used Meguiar's scratch remover and it worked great. I thought maybe the Wolfman owned my truck before.

    Yeah I checked out Meguiars as well. Both products had pretty similar reviews so I went with the lower price lol. I never understood how those things could get so scratched up. I know when I open up my door I just use my two fingers :fingerscrossed:

    I knew another superwhite taco would appreciate it this ha. A microfiber towel is your best bet to get the best results IMO

    All it does is clean the scratches to make them look gone. Machine is needed to get them completely buffed out.

    I have them on mine from a previous owner. I need to take apart my door handle one if these days to buff it with a machine.

    As the car gets dirty theyll show again.

    You know... not to be a Debbie downer or anything....

    If you could tell me how those things will make me money, let me know ;)

    Especially if I don’t have to actually put them on my truck. Because you really cannot pay me to put clear film on my truck. Shit looks hideous over time.
