Default Paint Damage: Temporary fix?

Hi There,

I have a P Reg 306 and the bonnet is getting pretty bad with scratched. I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent wax's or a quick temporary fix whilst i track down a bonnet?

Look forward to hearing your comments.

Thanks

Alex

Use a cutting compound with a rotary polisher, g3 will prob do. Id prob flat it back with 2000 wet & dry first. If you have never done it before practise on a spare panel as you can burn through the paint easily

Is the surface really rough to the touch? Last time I saw paint like that it was caused by a nasty reaction (nearly a year later) between the clearcoat and activator and the only repair was taking it back almost to bare metal and starting over

I'd find a little backstreet paint garage if I were you and ask them if they'll have a quick go with some G3 and a polisher for a fiver before you spend any more money (even the smallest tube of G3, a 400g one, costs about 8+vat and it'd just be enough to do a car if you were REALLY careful....) - I don't think it's going to help with paint that badly affected.
