Vehicle are manufactured with exterior finishes comprised of a variety of layers: primer, colored paint, and a final very thin top layer known as the clear coat. The 3M Scratch Removal System is designed to remove defects to the clear coat with the added aid of a user supplied household drill. Examples of repairable defects that the 3M Scratch Removal System is able to easily repair include fine scratches from automatic car wash brushes, vegetation scrapes, etc. Common areas in need of this sort of repair are the area around the door handle or the trunk just to name a few. How Does it Work
The 3M Scratch Removal System is based in a simple 3-tiered approach to scratch removal: sanding using the included 3000 grit sandpaper to reduce the scratch, application of 3M rubbing compound and refining of the scratch area, and finally polishing and restoring the scratch area using a 3M polishing pad, scratch remover compound and a common household drill. An additional recommended step is to apply automotive wax in the repaired area to protect the car's finish, since you have removed an area of its clear coat. When removing a defect in the paint surface, you are actually removing a very thin layer of the clear coat paint. This procedure is commonly performed by professional technicians in automotive collision shops, car dealerships, detail shops, and assembly plants for high dollar amounts. Now, you can do it yourself for a fraction of the cost. Key Features
The 3M Scratch Removal System contains one disc pad holder, one 3000-grit abrasive square, one purple compounding pad, one black polishing pad, one 3M rubbing compound (1 oz), one 3M scratch remover (1 oz), and step-by-step directions for use.** Limitation of Liability
Except where prohibited by law, 3M will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from the 3M product, whether direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential, regardless of the legal theory asserted, including warranty, contract, negligence or strict liability. About 3M

All I can say this stuff works. Be patient with the sanding, but once sanded the rest is a snap. I was very leary of this product. Read morePublished 19 days ago by GTB
Works fine and got the scratches out. Instructions are fairly easy but ambiguous about which paste to use in what step. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Christian Kirsch
This works great for removing clear coat scratches. Simply follow the instructions and be sure not to go too deep into the clear coat and you will be fine. Highly recommend!Published 26 days ago by R. Appleby
I had a long scratch along the back of my car (courtesy of my crazy drunk neighbor). I drive a nice car. A scratch like that really stands out and bugged the crap out of me. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Nicole Pierce
This is a fantastic product when used as directed. It took out light a medium scratches with ease. It won't get the deepest scratches, but that isn't what its designed to do. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ray Mossman
