Can the ECF insert be buffed?

Hey guys,

I caught a pretty significant rock chip that requires getting the bumper repainted. And while lookin the car over before taking it to the body shop I noticed some swirl scratches (very very fine, can't even feel them). I was thinking of having the body shop just give it a very light buffing to take them out.

So since the ECF has been clear coated, I'm assuming it can be buffed as well. Am I wrong?

Yes it can be buffed. Im about to do mine as it has a few holograms in it from the factory buff. Just dont use too agressive of a pad or compound and you dhould be fine.

I believe you can but I would use some compound that removes small scratches and do it by hand.

Sucks about the bumper.

My detailer buffed and polished it exactly like the rest of the car. It is clear coated so I don't see any reason not to treat it like any other body panel.
