Yes watch the videos but in my phone... didn't know there notes too... ok sensei! Let me watch them on my PC and if I still have questions I'm come back here...

today on the freeway some smart guy decided to break some part of his car and pieces scattered everywhere.. one of them some type of plastic about 8'' long right into the front-left bumper.. i checked it out and yeah its a nice little scrape mostly dirt but after clearing up the dirt still litlle scuffs left behind.. whats the best approach to this.. doesnt seem like a whole restoration project is needed but does that ''Duplicolor/Paint Scratch & Fix Tube'' actually work good for something like this..?

Make sure you take a lot of notes and don't skip through anything. Like I say in the videos, if you ask a question about something that I already covered in the videos, I'm just going to tell you to watch the videos again. So make your 2-hour ordeal worth the experience.

You need to just pull up to a body or detail shop and let them fix it for you. It takes about 5 minutes to fix and you won't have to worry about buying worthless OTC products. If you want to fix it yourself, watch the videos but it would be cheaper for you just to stand and watch a guy remove that damage rather instantly. It's that simple to fix.

If someone can't fix that in 5 minutes (10 minutes if he's high on weed), go somewhere else. I would fix it and charge you nothing if you rolled up to my garage. I'd say 10-15 bucks TOPS at a shop or detail place. You don't need to drop your car off. It's a 5 minutes fix.

Glad you found it useful. Now watch the entire series twice and see how much information that you missed the first time through. EVERYONE does, especially the noobs.

How to remove water spots

I washed my new Camaro in the sun and now have dried water spots.
How can I remove them.

Wow........just watched all the videos and even backed some of them up a few times to get the info etched into my memory.

What can I say? If you haven't watched them do so NOW!. He does repeat himself a lot but it's worth it. I learned more in that 2 hours than I've learned probably in my entire life when it comes to repairing paint.

Thank you sir!

With that said, I still get the same questions over and over again about something I repeated 20 times. That's exactly why I repeat myself so often. When someone asks me a question about something that I've already covered in detail within those videos, I have one answer.

Go watch the videos again.
