I really Fuc*ked up my moms car when i went camping. i went through some deep brush and i guess tree branches scratched the whole car up both light scratches and some deep ones the length of the car and even the headlight. i have already biffed the car 3 times in one day to try to get the scratches out and only the small light scratches were fixed but the longer deeper ones stay and the ones on the mirrors. my question is, what should i do to get these imperfections out. any suggestions will be appreciated.

If you can feel them with your fingernail, there is no amount of buffing in the world that will get them out.

Scratch-X is pretty good for light scratches, but again, if you can feel them with your finger nail you need to use...

...*TOUCHUP PAINT!!!* FUN!...

Using a small tooth pick, match, or paint brush (all the brissels removed except one or two) and carefully fill in the scratches with primer (if it went through to the sheetmetal, otherwise skip this part). Then slowly add tiny coats of paint, waiting 10-15min inbetween coats. once the touchup paint is slightly higher than the rest, let it dry overnight. Come back in the morning and put a polishing cloth around a credit card, and buff the touchup paint flush with the rest of the paint.

I'm sure in no time LT6916 will tell you about his miracle headlight scratch remover that he uses. I would tell you what it is but i forget what its called. Him and FiF used it on their cars at the PA meet.
