All scratches are not the same. Some "scratches" may not even be scratches at all. You find these when a painted car bumper or wooden post, or the rubber bumper on a shopping cart, rubs up against the body. The object doing the rubbing may be softer than the paint. Instead of scratching the car, it deposits material on the paint surface -- a mark that is actually raised above the paint, not gouged into it.

Do you have marks on top of the paint?
Then any car polish should remove them.
If you have scatches then:

Hi Michael,

Will probably post in the future about scratches.... have to read your articles to see what kind
of skill one needs to attempt to fix scratches....

So right now will discuss marks on top of the car.
A colleague of mine told me that she uses oil,  in the article about tree sap etc. that you posted, it
talks about kerosene oil...

So my quests are:
-----------------------
a) do you think kerosene is a good idea to remove surface issues?
b) are car polish and car wax the same thing? i remember seeing car wax in the store, i don't remember seeing car polish?

pls advise, tx, s

a / kerosene is safe with some paints, check it on a non visible part of the cars paint.
b/ polish actually removes a very thin layer of paint thus you can over do it and remove all the paint.
Wax is just that ..a wax coating.
