My truck got KEYED, so now we fix

Well last week my truck got keyed while I was eating lunch. Luckily for you guys it wasn't my ranger. But they didn't hold back and why they did it I don't know. I guess they really didn't like my power wagon. Anyway now we fix it

Before




If you look at the mark on the left


You can see how much better it looks after the first coat


Now we wait for the second coat to dry


Once it drys then I will sand it down put down some clear coat, sand it down and after a wax job hopefully they aren't so noticeable.

I would be furious. It doesn't matter whether you have a legit reason for it or not you don't mess with someone's vehicle.

^ Agreed! Too bad it happened but not much you can do once it's done. I hope it turns out well!

Just slow. I have the first two marks pretty much done. They are clear coated now and I will sand them down smooth tomorrow. If they look good then I'll keep going. Which right now I think it is going to look good.

Keying a vehicle is really low, I don't care where your loyalties lie

There are still some spots where the paint didn't get filled into the scratch as good as I wanted that I need to go over. But hopefully by the time I dab more paint in there and clear coat it. It will be virtually gone. Still have lots more sanding and buffing

can you go into a little detail about how you filled in the scratches?

I bought some touch up paint from the dealership. It came in a pen but also had a little brush. I tried the pen first but it didn't roll on good so I just painted it with the brush. Put on the first coat and let it dry a few hours. Took 2,000 grit sandpaper and some lubricant and sanded smooth. Then applied a second coat of paint. If there is a spot that the paint is not getting into the scratch I took a q-tip and soaked it with paint then dabbed it in. Let it dry over night and then sand again.

After you sand good with 2,000 grit then go over with 3,000 grit and even 4,000 if you can find it. Just helps with the blending. Once the scratch looks like it is filled get a clear coat applicator (comes in a pen) and run it over and let it dry over night. Do the step by step sanding like with the paint until smooth.

Then get a polishing cream and a buffing pad and start polishing until the sanding marks are gone. Then wax. Done

Turtle wax has a good deep scratch kit but the sanding pads were not big enough for my job
