Default Will these scratches come out?

These are 2 of the worst scratches that magically appeared on my new truck a week after I got it so if these come out I know the others will a lot easier.

Luke answered a question like this yesterday in the "washing and waxing section" that was asked by 67 Polaris. It's hard to tell how deep the scratches are but I think the same advise that Luke gave yesterday would apply to your problem. I think the thread was titled "really need some advise" or something like that.

It's hard to tell from a pic but Meguiars ScratchX 2.0 would probably make that almost dissappear.

It worked wonders for me

I have seen some of those kits that remove scratches but I am really nervous about the whole sanding part on my brand new truck..

Always use the least abrasive products first. There is a lot of things you can do and a lot of products to try before you pick up a piece of sand paper.

Use the old finger nail test, gentley apply your finger nail into the surface if it goes into a groove Sanding might need to be involved if your finger nail is not in some sort of groove then it can be compounded out. Check out my post of Detailing!
Thanks,
Nick

Never knew the "finger-nail trick". Thanks for the info.

Scratch X isnt a kit. It is a liquid (like wax but basically a compund). I would start there. You really cant mess it up if you do it by hand. I'd be cautious using a high speed buffer with it though. An orbital will work as well. A good rubbing compound would get alot of that out as well.
