Meguiars Scratch Remover
Understanding the nature of the beast

It is important to understand what Meguiars scratch remover is, and what it isn't.

  • It is a very mild formulation with mostly chemical cleaners, not aggressive abrasives.
  • Mild formulation means very safe for use by anyone, on any car paint.
  • Mild formulation also means limited on its ability to remove deeper scratches.
  • The best and most useful way to either remove a car paint scratch, or to use to assess the severity of a car paint scratch.

One of the greatest challenges of performing car paint scratch removal as a professional is managing people's expectations of what is realistic, what is possible, and what makes sense. I have found that people's understanding of the car paint removal process and the outcome varies wildly from person to person.

What is Realistic: A car owner, you need to understand that what I can do as a professional should be intentionally better than what you will be able to do. If you were able to accomplish what I can do, then how much of an expert could I really be. Ultimately every scratch is unique. And because of this there is no, one single fix that will remove every car paint scratch. Many times a scratch will require multiple steps and multiple "fixes". Transfer removal, then compounding, then application of touch-up paint to fill and disguise deeper scratch.

What is Possible: I have found that most people do not understand the nature of scratches in general, and therefore often have unrealistic expectations of the outcome. What is possible for you to fix, is different than what is possible for me to fix as an expert. Do not let this dissuade you from any valiant efforts on your part, you simply need to factor in your skill set into the overall equation.

What Makes Sense: Everything is life is a series of trade-off's. You trade one benefit in for another. The goal is to find the winning balance of features, benefits, and trad-off's. This scratch remover by Meguiar's is not only the winning balance for ANY car owner regardless of experience or skill set, but a must have since it will be the best and first step to removing any scratch. Using this product will revel very quickly what you are dealing with and the severity of the situation on hand.
