Fixing scratches

this truck im looking at is a great deal, exept that its got tons of sratches along the sides. like 1/8" thick for most of the bed on both sides... do you think that thoes color waxes would fill them in, you would i have to repaint them all? any help would be appreciated....


:edit: i added a pic of one of the bad spots

deep and the area looks slightly dented. you may be able to *lessen* the appearance of em with some good rubbing compound, but looks like those are there to stay, barring a new paintjob.

those are places where someone hit the truck or the driver hit something. i had somethin like them on the ranger and meguiars colorx couldnt get them to disappear(sp) but it did hide them a bit.

when i got in my accident i had a scratch just like that. I got it out with some maguires #66 wax. it took a lot of elbow grease tho because i didnt have a buffer at the time.

If your buying the truck tell them you want that fixed, and part of the deal. Most likely they will. I had a dealer wanted to redo two leather seats in an Acura legend for me and the price wouldn't go up. If they need to get rid of the car or truck they will work with you.

I agree, get them to fix the scratches and dents before you buy.

I've got a bunch of good ole' split wood scratches all over both bedsides. I had a full load of split wood and grandma and her neighbor lady unloaded it (I was at home they were 140miles away and dad had the truck so i couldn't help unload it). I just bought Nu Finish Scratch Doctor and will give it a try whenever this damned Oregon rain in the middle of the summer stops. I'll let you know.
