Got a few shallow but large starches on the VS ute and wondered what the best way to buff them out is.

Also my sister borrowed it and scraped it along her picket fence, no damage but some white paint transfered over.

On the VK's I could just use a little wet n dry, but on that kind of metallic copper paint I'd be a bit more hesitant.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

usually if you can feel the scratch it cant be buffed out, factory paint jobs dont usually have that much of a clear coat, and it you buff through the clear you will notice it more then the scratch.


as for the white paint, there is a good chance just a good polish will get it off.


wet rub is ok, but use caution, as i said before there not that much clear on factory paint and you dont want to rub through it, and dont use anything less then 1500 grit.

Nah white doesn have a clear coat! Hit it up with an electric orbital sander and a foam buffing pad, use slow RPM and VERY low pressure
