Well yesterday I took my truck out and got it dirty and must say I am impressed with the dodge's..... bWe went on a trail up here in Western Carolina...me and a few buddies.....trail got a little too narrow and I put a few trail pinstripes on.......a few add character but on a new truck too many turn the stomach...what do you guys use to remove some minor scrapes....

Brett, Go down to your local auto shop and look in the paint isle. I went there a couple of weeks ago and I found many products that are inexpensive, but I am not sure which ones work the best.
Good Luck,
Britt

I had the same problem with mine. If the scratches aren't all the way through the paint you can go get a mild cutting compound and apply that with a sheeps wool pad on a buffer... let that dry for a couple of minutes and then go back over to take it off. Next get a good wax and go over it and wax it. Almost every scratch came out of mine, and now it looks great.

P.S. Don't go over edges with the buffer, or hold it in the same place for too long...It'll eat right through the paint...duh.

Rule of thumb: If you can feel the scratch while running your fingernail over it, than it's probably too deep to remove with a rubbing compound!

At the beginning of the summer I have many surface scratches from spring mud season so I take it to the local body shop and have it buffed and waxed. It gets all the scratches out and looks real sharp, except for the buff lines which you can see when the sun shines on them from a certain angle. If you're doing alot of wheelin with new paint, a buffer is a godd investment.

Yeah, I agree on the buffer. Just offer to buff a friends ride before yours so it's not your paint you accidently burn when learning!! LOL (just kidding!)
