MIRACLE! The scratches are gone! Well, except for one. I got out there yesterday and worked on them quite a while. They ran from the front of the coach all the way to the back! All of them are totally gone except for one very deep one above the entry door. The compound helped but did not totally remove it. Now, as Paul Harvey used to say, the rest of the story. A while ago when I was pulling the 5er I went to Lousiana during Lovebug season and picked up a good supply of them on the front cap. I made the mistake of leaving them on there for a couple of weeks ( I had never heard of a Lovebug at that time!). When I tried to remove them I found that they had eaten into the finish and after trying every kind of cleaner I could think of, I could not remove the pits. I called a shop here that specialized in Gel-Coat repair on boats, and he told me to get some 1500 grit wet sandpaper. That did the job!
Now for the rest of the story. I figured that if that worked on the Gel-Coat it should work on the full-body paint with the Clear-Coat.
It took the Clear-Coat right off and left a scuffed place! My last hope was my trusty Rejex. I put a coat of it on there and the place is hardly noticable! Sometimes God has to take care of his dummies!
Thanks for all your suggestions guys! God bless!
