Small scratches, easiest way to remove?
Hi folks, a quick detailing question.

Can anyone recommend an easy way to remove minor scratches from the paint except for polishing? If that's possible haha
I just wanted to look for an easier solution, if it exists. These scratches seem to be left because someone tried to wipe thesurface when it was dusty or something. Well, at least that's what it looks like. The bike is black, and these ting scratches are so visible against light and drive me nuts.

Thanks for any help.

i've always had good results with the HD scratch & swirl repair.....just take your time and don't use a lot of pressure, all you're trying to do is remove & fill in
the microscopic surface that you're trying to repair

Yep. that'll bug the shit outta me too :doh: I asked my son who worked at a panel and paint shop and keeps his car and bike super clean.....well he came out with a big explanation on how to buff it out , but at the end of the day a good polish and a electric buffer seems to be the remedy :P

I appreciate the recommendations, folks. Last night I was also researching this question, and seems like the only way to get rid of the scratches is to polish them off. I also saw a liquid that's called 'swirl and scratch remover' (Chemical Brothers make it https://www.motorcycleid.com/chemica...666420833.html). Do you happen to know, if it works differently from the way regular mild polish does?

I'm pretty sure that's a close relative to the HD swirl one OJ mentioned above. I'd go with the MoCo on this one ....
