Default T cut?

Good afternoon chaps!

I was wondering if anybody knows the difference between t cut color fast scratch remover and t cut color fast liquid one says anno particles on it and looks more like a tube the other is a bottle.

I got some scratches to sort out and have only ever used the bottle of liquid before not the paste scratch remover.

Are there much differences?

The only thing you have to be careful with regarding older tcut (the non "metallic" version) is it has non diminishing abrasives. Meaning it won't break down and refine, which is what most modern paints need.
The car might look great until the sun hits it, then it will look like Ray Charles has been at it. With a scotch pad, he's dropped on a gravel drive. 10 times.

There are better products out there.

The thing with T-Cut is that it works by wearing away the top layer of paint down to the level of the scratch. If the scratch has gone through the paint and is showing white then T-Cut cannot do anything to help. These days, the top paint layer seems to be only microns in depth with the clear coat supposedly providing protection but I tend to find that whenever the local supermarket gets a new delivery of scotch pads I get a new scratch on the car.

The various colour match scratch repair products can go some way to hide the scrtch but once you know it's there you will always be able to find it. I have some blemishes on my car so i'm considering taking it to a local 'Deleteadent' to get a quote on repairing the blemishes I have found.

Touching stone chips and small scratches in with the correct colour paint, wet sanding it back and polishing is surprisingly easy.

Although the first time you do it you need a dose of Dutch courage lol.

I think I need the dutch courage! I have seen I can get the touch up paint from halfords so once the rest of the car is sorted I will look into sorting out these pesky scratches! =]

The tube will be a more abrasive cutting compound which on an old style paint job would flatten a deeper scratch reasonably quickly. On the newer clear coat paint finishes it would likely cut through any clear coat then almost immediately take all the colour away as it cuts through to any primer
