The wife washed the car this weekend. Lovely thoughtful thing to do, however unfortunately i now have a hairline scratch down the front of the hood. Has anyone had any luck getting scratches out of the paint. I assume the scratch got there via a dirt particle in the sponge or something. I have found many refferences to swirl removers on this site, but does anyone know of a product that can remove a surface scratch (deeper than a swirl, but still does to be minor and superficial). on other cars i have used heavy compound and had much luck, however i am a little more than afrain to try on the hood of my 2009 GT.
