damn..i gotta give that a try...i hate those damn mud guards.
i tried those big auto shop but i couldn't find those 3M products. you can get a small bottle of 3M imperial hand glaze from pep boys at some high price but i have never seen those rubbing compound at all.BlackShadow said:Thanks for the heads up guys.:bigok: I have a fe scratches on my hood and I tried to use touch up paint and it looks nasty. I was going to spend on a new hood but this sounds like a better and CHEAPER idea.
BTW, for those grit wet/dry sandpaper and 3M products, can I get them like at Pep Boys or R&S Strauss?
oh yeah. well, see, my scratches was sooo deep that even though it's all black now again and shiny, you can feel the up and down a little bit coz' of the DEEPEST of the scratch. i could probably do it again for a better job (it was my first time), but i will definitely go your route to get acura to fix it for medaverman said:Or you can take it back to the dealer's and get them to fix it like I did.
Good job on the instructions, rominl. To tell you the truth I've bought 1500/2000 sandpaper and the 3M glaze already, just in case the dealer didn't want to play nice with me. I think I'm going to return those items back to Advance Auto Parts soon.
like i said, yellow page for auto paint supply shops. there might not be a lot. here in san jose i was only able to find ONE shop after going through two yellow pages.fahoumh said:very good post :thumbsup:.....now I can get rid of that ugly chip on the front skirt....and my friend has one of those buffers....but where to get the 3M stuff....
thanks for the head's up!rominl said:like i said, yellow page for auto paint supply shops. there might not be a lot. here in san jose i was only able to find ONE shop after going through two yellow pages.
i have never tried it before but i assume it could be done. i usually wash my car every week, so i can take off any kind of bug stains. just use soap water to get rid of themacuraTLao said:do u think this will do the trick on all those microscopic blemishes from bug and rocks on the front bumper???
those nicks/scratches annoy me so much,
Hey Rominl:rominl said:oh and regarding those mud guards scratches, i would probably elevate it to acura.... i still think they should repaint our bodies regardless
oh those..... umm....... i am not sure. we are talking about the whole bumper here. my bumper has quite some little tiny chips too due to long drives, and seriously i don't really pay much attention to that. nothing much i could do. i would probably just wait for 1 or 2 yrs and then repaint the whole thing. remember, it takes practice to master this, dont do it on the most obvious parts when you are not readyacuraTLao said:not bug stains, i can get those out with just soap and a good hard rub with the sponge, but microscopic chips and blemishes that u would get from normal driving conditions or highway driving conditions from flying debris..
well....i think i'll try it out this weekend if its nice and hopefully it works :dunno:

I want to thank you for sharing the effort you got:bigok:
I think this is really helpful to all of us
I'm going to Sunnyvale Acura tomorrow morning for replace my driver side door panel (where the memory seat at) this is going to be third time replace the damn panel.. (alway loose)
Anyway, I will report this to the adviser that I know over there
The door panel is always loose. And it still loose after they replace today. But I will go back there again because last time when they replace my rear leather seat they forgot to put the small buckle that located on the back of the leather seat.rominl said:

oh boy, for every single reason do not go to stevens creek.... i have heard nothing but bad words about them. latest drama i heard from the atl site was that someone got his car there for service and it came back with a huge scratch on the bumper (though they did repaint it for him, but still.....). i have never been to that dealership but i wouldn't wanna try. they are all cocky.BozzTL-S said:
