Has anyone tried the nano magic impregnated cloth for removing scuffs and light scratches ?  Do they actually work ?  I have some light scratches from (country) roadside vegetation and fingernails behind the door handle.  Seems too good to be true.

I’ve not seen it in person but I’m guessing that it’s a cloth that has some kind of polish in it that has “filler” qualities.

To be honest you would be better off washing and polishing the car with Autoglym super resin polish, it will do the same thing but lasts and gives a nice shine as well

After spending nearly 5hrs polishing with autoglym super resin polish on Sunday, I was not impressed with the results and I wish id used something better (possibly abit more expensive.)

I’m surprised by that, I’ve used it for over 30 years now and it’s always been a good product, it’s one of my go to filler polishes.

Most expensive isn’t always better, I’ve paid out a lot in the past for products that claim to be better and they lack durability or finish.

Maybe you had a bad bottle, who knows

The scratches are still there. The good paint looks good and overall better. I hope the finish lasts. I should have used a compound 1st or more abrasive pads. The saving grace is that as you say- the finish lasts well. I worked for yrs as a finisher in the BMW MIni paint shop.

Compounding with SRP will not remove the paint imperfections, that’s why many amateur detainees only use it as a finishing polish and not a compound.

If you want to remove the scratches permanently with a machine then something like megs m105/205 or scholl S20 would be more effective

My polishing serves as an exercise for me to learn all the imperfections. (Credit is due for the AG wax, it did return results with little effort.) In 3 months I will for example know to clay- bar the front bumper and compound the rear bumper. Those pesky 'detainees' ..I knew what u ment hehe
