Our scratch remover for cars comes with all the specialty supplies to complete the job. You just need to supply a standard household drill and other basic household items.

3M™ Scratch Removal System
Making Scratches Go Away
When a fine scratch or scuff affects the clear coat, our 3M™ Scratch Removal System goes to work to smooth it out. Consisting of a three stage system of sanding, compounding and polishing, it is designed to remove defects to the thin outer coat of your car's finish. The kit removes small imperfections caused by keys, fingernails, shrub or tree branches, clothing, wash rags and car wash brushes. It is particularly useful in high-contact areas such as around door handles, door panels and trunks.

What is the Clear Coat?
Vehicles are manufactured with exterior finishes comprised of multiple layers: primer, colored paint and a final very thin top layer known as the clear coat. This kit is designed to remove fine scratches that go no deeper than the clear coat. If a scratch is deeper, it may require a more extensive repair such as repainting a portion of the vehicle.

How Does it Work?
The 3M™ Scratch Removal System is based in a simple 3-tiered approach to scratch removal: 1) sanding using the included 3000 grit sandpaper to reduce the scratch, 2) application of 3M™ rubbing compound and refining of the scratched area, and 3) polishing and restoring the scratched area using a 3M polishing pad and scratch remover compound. An additional recommended step is to apply automotive wax over the repaired area to protect the car's finish. With any car paint scratch remover, you are actually removing a very thin layer of the clear coat paint, so it's best to add a layer of protection with a polishing wax after the job is done.

What's in the Box
The 3M™ Scratch Removal System provides users with specialty scratch-repair supplies, as well as the step-by-step guidance. Our car scratch remover kit 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. The user needs to supply a standard household drill (1200-1600 rpm), microfiber detail cloth, spray bottle, water and paper towels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as stated!! I had a large white scuff-marked area on corner, and side of front bumper.I followed the product directions precisely. In 15 minutes the scratches were completely gone, and car shine restored. I'm totally thrilled with the outcome. Best $29 I ever spent! And no, I don't work for 3M. Just very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Used it to touch up scratches on black motorcycle tank and bodywork. Good stuff, same stuff the pros use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as easy as led to believe I had several scratches on my BMW trunk lid that I wanted removed. The first scratch seemed to be removed using the process. So, I ventured onto the other scratches on the trunk lid following the instructions. None of the scratches were deep and none were determined beyond the product's limitation. The whole trunk lid is now spotted where I sanded. I tried everything in the kit and more and needless to say I am very disappointed. My next move is to take it to the body shop to paint. Save your money and take it to a professional.
