Paint problems..... I just took the pinstripes off..

Well.. I decided to take my pin stripes off on my nbp accord coupe that I had for 1 week. I actually scrubbed it too hard to get off the sticky craps and it has scratches.. minor hairline scratches.. i'm just so pissed...

anyway, that's beside the problems. I still see the lines in the sun light at certain angle.. what can I do to remove this??? what can I use to remove scratches???

Yeah, use a polish on it. But I would do a whole detail on the car if your gonna polish the pinstripe area. If you use alcohol, you will strip off everything if you havent waxed it already.

Try a polish first. If that doesn't fix it, try a light compound and then the polish. And finish it off with wax.

what's a good polish to use?

I've been reading the detail forum and many people suggested maquires. It's a brand new car and I don't really see point of doing clay bar and all the steps that involves it...

anyone suggest a good setup?

Personally, I use the S100 products.

So, for a polish, I would use the S100 SEC (Shine Enhancing Cleaner). For scratches, I use Scratch-X first, then S100 SEC, then S100 wax.

I used turtle wax tar and bug remover with bounty and I got absolutely no scratches while scrubbing.

NO GOO GONE! it's bad for the clearcoat!

use 3M automotive adhesive remover. it's been designed to be used by shops, and is developed to not harm automotive paints or finishes.
