Default Got keyed!!!!!

Today is a very very upsetting day for me, I came outside to see my car got the SH|T keyed out of! I think I know who it was but I'm not to sure.
But is there anything I can do to help this out, will buffering take it away? or am I looking at a paint job? :(

From your post, it sounds like it wasn't one key mark but a lot. That sucks but are they really long and continous? If they're short, you could try Duplicolor touch up pen/brush..

Paint job. I've dont many polishing will only help if its not even through the clear, and even then it will leave the clear so then that it will fail in no time. and "burning through" is very hard at that point.

wow that sucks, people these days

full coverage could save you if you have it, but its more than likely a new paint job. :(

Its not down to bare metal thank god, and yes there not short, some are but then theres some that are a decent length..

So I guess a new paintjob is the only way?

People that have to resort to that crap are some of the lowest cowards on earth. Sorry.

If you don't have a buffer you could try some ScratchX and see if it makes it look any better.

wouldnt hurt to try the quick fixes... if it gets repainted, it will be sanded down anyways.

Yea, I'm going to try to buff it and see how that works...whats a good soultion to use with the buffer??

Kinda don't want to have to get it painted cause I don't know if it'll be worth it, maybe if I liked MAACO I'd do one of there paint jobs but I'm not a fan and I don't have the 2-3grand to paint my car..

were can I get the ScratchX? Autozone? Advance?

If you have a buffer you can try a local paint supplier or a Car Quest for Meguiars professional products. Otherwise you can find ScratchX (a Meg'* product) just about anywhere. I believe ScratchX is for use by hand.
