scratches?

hey gang, since getting me new 90, i am wondering who would fix an old "key" scratch that the previous owner had......would you fix it?? or leave it alone...

it runs all along the driver side......but at the front fender, you can see below the paint.....much more noticeable....

just wondering...

ps> do most people here even care about scratches???

thanks,

-dan

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

What I do for my scratches is take it on tight trails and cover the scratches with deeper scratches and mud. It's a truck, for gods sake, relish in the toughness. If you are driving it for a show truck (and there is nothing wrong with that, if it suits you), then I advise taking very little advice from this board. We have a tendency to trash our rigs to give us an excuse to upgrade. There is an old adage of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" but I take that to mean that if I want to upgrade, I have to break it first.

Yeah, I stopped worrying about it ealier this summer. Pinstriping gives it character.

But if you want to keep it looking good but a little worn, medium then fin polish should at least even it out. McGuires Scratch remover works surprisingly well...

If you want to try. I'm a big fan of the Mothers brand wax, glaze and scratch remover. I would recommend trying their 3 step process to remove the key scratch and then top it off with a few coats of glaze and wax.
