First scratch on the MYP


‘22 MYP, White/Black
Mar 29, 2021
My first scratch on the MYP, what are my best options. Can I try something available locally via ordering touch up paint online? Or should I try a scratch remover?

You'll want to use a compound to buff it down/polish it slightly. It doesn't look like it's even close to being through the clearcoat.

Wax will only temporarily hide it. Compound (even by hand should work) until you can't see it, then wax.

For something this minor, even an off-the-shelf product at Autozone and a buffing pad or microfiber rag should work wonders for you.
