Fender Scratch - ZL1 CRT

Anyone know if this is repairable and what the best method is? Will a rotary work best?

So pissed off to find this. I've never had this happen before. It doesn't look intentional but still pissed it happened. Unusually park far away.

It's about 1.5 FT long on the driver side top of fender

Generally if you can feel it with your nail it's nearly or completely through the clear coat. If it's just a bad mark then it should buff out.

I can barely feel it with my nail. Doesn't look deep. Hopefully will buff out.

You might be able to remove it completely if your finger nail isn't catching on it, you can definitely lessen the appearance of it at minimum. But, you have three high edges in that area, unless you are proficient with a rotary buffer leave it to us professionals.

If you must try it on your own, use 1/8'' pinstripe tape on the edges so you don't burn through the clear.

Thanks - no plans to do it myself. I am not patient enough and know I'll screw it up. Need to find a pro in Dallas and just get it fixed as well as get entire car Detailed and waxed.

I agree now that I looked at it more. All day today I was out but I parked far away from others. No one knew me and I don't recall cutting anyone off or doing anything to upset anyone. Someone had to walk over to do that. I was thinking not intentional because I expected a lot worse if it was.

I wish I was closer to help you out.

Ask for a good Detailer in your area on one of these forums.
