      Chris will the haze effect reappear when you wash the car? If you are going to do a DIY video like this; also include the going to the car wash part.

      Will this really repair it or just cover it? What happens if then I take the car to the carwash?

      I was scared to do this to be honest as I didn't want to end up needing a lot of work by a pro to fix my efforts. I followed the steps apart from I chose to begin with 5000 grit and it worked. I know I shouldn't be surprised but there's a lot of crap on YouTube, this should be a 'YouTube Pick' to stop people searching for other videos showing you what to do.

      Great video, but is this truly a permanent fix, or will I have to redo this after a wash?

      Steven Definitely permanent. The sandpaper smoothes out the scratch so the clear coat is flat again, then to finish off, the polish is slightly abrasive, so it removes the fine scratches left by the sandpaper. (The polish is like extremely fine sandpaper, so fine there aren’t any scratches left)

      If you wash your car though, does the polish not just come off and the haze effect reappear?

      Frog The polish is abrasive, so it acts like incredibly fine sandpaper (Which is why it takes more effort to polish out the fine scratches that form the haze)

      How would you go about doing this on a scratch that's really long? Would you have to do it in sections?

      But wouldn't you be removing more clear coat with all that sanding? Should I add clear coat after sanding then using rubbing wax to make it smooth?

      you remove some of the clear coat but not all still better that a big scratch. Adding clear coat to a car is really hard and time consuming too

      I tried this and just completely destroyed my car then I took it to a body shop to fix it and even they couldn't fix it. Biggest lie ever. And still trying to figure out how to fix it.

      Why wouldn't you do a test area on your car first? And a body shop couldn't fix it? Come on, now.

      So when you do this, there might still be a small bit of haze depending on the color but that's a lot less noticable than the scratch.

      Find the smallest, least conspicuous scratch and do that first. If you do a good job on that then your confidence will get a boost

      1 mm is .040 thousands of an inch so 2 mm is .080 thousands of an inch as opposed to .001 and .002 as you mentioned there is a big difference

      When painting vehicles it's mils (1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter and 25.4 microns = .001” inch or 1 mil).

      Great instructional video! We followed all of the steps, but on a black vehicle, we are seeing a bunch of fingerprint looking marks where the scratches and cloudiness once were. We used the microfiber cloth and the products you recommended, so we are wondering how this happened. Any suggestions as to how to remove these marks? I would include photos if I could. Thanks!

      A mm is a 1000th of a metre not a 1000th of an inch. Which is about 40 thousands of an inch.
