I have heard from a few people on this board that crunchy peanut butter on a PC can be used to take out scratches. I have one long and fairly light scratch on my passenger side door. I have used 3M rubbing compound fine cut on a yellow cutting pad and no such luck. Anyone tried the peanut butter thing? Thanks

I've had good luck with Scratch-X. I had several light scratches that I could feel with my fingernail ( ooo:(). A couple of vigorous sessions with Scratch-X and I cannot see the scratches at all....

Did you just rub the paint like hell with that Scratch X? I have tried it, but no such luck. This scratch is really pissing me off :mad:

got a terry towel, put a quarter sized dollop of Scratch-X on it and rubbed until the paint was nearly dry and the Scratch-X had all but disappeared. I had to do it more than once. If that doesn't do it I'll let someone else help you as I haven't gone more aggressive than that.

:eek:

Unsalted, smooth peanut butter will work no better to remove a scratch than what a mild glaze can do. Crunchy peanut butter will act as a 5-grit abrasive and add some new scratches.

GTI2001, do you know what it means to remove a scratch? It's not by miracles - no product will remove it if the scratch goes through the paint. To remove a scratch (or swirl, or many other defects) is to abrade and thin down your paint¡K in order to get your scratch level with the paint. If you can feel it, there isn't much to do other than colorsand.

From your peanut butter question, I wouldn¡¦t try colorsanding it yourself. Try calling a professional.

Good luck!

I would have to agree here with the veterans that peanut butter, while wonderful on toast with jelly and honey. has no place in my aresenal of paint prep products.

Peanut butter, or rather the peanut oil, is used as a molding and trim cleaner to remove wax residue. I have found though that it is more of a cover up than a true residue remover. If you are going to try the peanut butter trick make sure it is the creamy and not the crunchy.......or the Goobers brand that combines both jelly and peanut butter. That would be bad.
