I picked up this light scratch going down a road I shouldn’t have, especially since it was a) muddy, b) had clearance issues, and c) had trees/bushes overgrown into road. Fortunately, I did not end up stuck in a batch of wet Virginia red clay. I did, however, manage to scratch both sides of the car from branches and tear the front bumper at the bottom. While I can’t do anything about the bumper myself, I did have to the tools and techniques to handle the scratches – or so I guessed. My amateur detailing skills had only tackled swirls and spider-webbing, not full blown scratches. But they were not deep and definitely not through the paint. The results speak for themselves.
