Exmoor Beast Posted April 10, 2006 Share Posted April 10, 2006 We are selling on our P38a as I mentioned before and as is to be expected its earned a few nasty scratches in its time with us, its its own damn fault for being too big for the Exmoor lanes. Anyway I pondered long and hard about what to do about it, I nearly even phoned a local firm who someone recommended and paid them to sort it out! Sanity prevailed though and I went to the local dealer and ordered one of those little nail narnish pots of Niagara grey. Typical Land Rover and it came with no advice on use so I winged it. First. cleaned the car as best I could. Then gave the deepest scratches a run over with some 1200 sandpaper to make sure they were cleaned out. Next out with the paint and splodged a girt dollop right down the length of the scratch. wait to dry. Out with the 1200 sandpaper again and lightly sanded it back until it felt smooth across the scratch. T-Cut out next and used that to take away the last of the overpaint. Lastly I washed the whole car again and applied Auto-Glym resin polish and then Auto-Glym High Gloss finish stuff. No sign of the scratches at all!! So if your shiney Land-Rover is looking ropey there is no excuse, get yourself down to your dealer and spend £6ish on the touch up kit. Unbelieveably it works. Maybe I should start on the 110....err maybe not Will Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
