turtle color wax

i bought this stuff to see how it would hide some scratches on my passenger side. to my surprise the shit worked, not good but great. it has a filler stick that you fill the scratch in with, then you wax over it. my car is red, and when the wax dried the car looked pink. they make this stuff in normal colors. blue, black, silver, red, and yellow i think.

(Damn, I must reply to all of your threads huh??) Anyways, when some jackoff keyed the whole left side of my car, I went out and bought that. Worked good on the beginning and the end of the scratch. But the rest was too damn deep :mad: :mad: So I dropped the car off at the body shop and they gave me a new paint job.

LMAO! No! I was not here all night. I went to bed at about 3:15A.M. EST, and woke up at about 8:30A.M. Ahhhhh..... very thin scratches. I found a light "abrasion" against my passenger door yesterday. Have no clue from what though. So in a bit I'll go rub some rubbing compund on it. And pray.

Oh man, I have a gouge in the front end, drivers side, just above where my corner marker is. Looks like someone took a running leap with a key or something. I stil have to mildly sand, prime, and find my car's paint (even though I don't think I'll achieve a matching paint pattern, since it sort of glows greenish gold)

I bought the red stuff for my Intrepid, never got to use it though. I have used the black on the wear spots on my Fiero though. I think it works awesome for how cheap it is.

You're talking about the Turtle Wax Color Cure right? I want to buy some of that, because my n-trepid is used, 36K, and it has a few scratches. The paint is red, so the scratches show the primer (White). It's so irritating. You said it turned your red car PINK??? That's not good...could you explain a little more...i don't think i want that stuff if it turns red to pink.

This stuff looks good for a while, but expect to have to redo it every month or so depending on how often you wash your car. Their older stuff would wash away about every time the car was washed. The newer stuff with the color stick and wax appears to a little more durable, but I'll bet you anything that as soon as the wax wears away (usually in about 30-45 days) you'll see the scratches begin to appear again...

This polish is not a permanent repair but a cover up. I have a dark green 95 Eagle Talon I use it on and it works GREAT. I wash it weekly and wax it with the color wax about every other month. I am VERY HAPPY with the results. It covers all the minor rock chips all over the hood. My car sits outside (wife's Intrepid gets the garage) and it still beads water from the rain for a couple of months after the wax job. I redo it everyother month to stay ahead of the weather.
It WILL NOT FIX a major/deep scratch but nothing short of repairning the scratch will make it look right.
For the cost of the polish, I believe it is worth it.

Most of the time when a scratch shows white, it may be just the clear coat. The way to tell is if you put water on the scratch, does it stay white or does it go away. If it stays it's the primer, if it disapears its only in the clear coat. Try a little polishing compound to see if it comes out.

Now that you mention it, they do go away, when i wash the car, but when i dry it...they appear again. I'll try the polish next time i wash the car. Thanx.

BTW, does anyone have a method for a good wash at a touchless automatic car wash? e.g. drying, polish, wax, protectant, windows, etc.

The only GOOD WASH is to give your baby a GOOD HAND JOB Wash. That is the ONLY WAY to get your car really CLEAN. If you car is light color, a touchfree or a spray wash will make it look better but it will not be CLEAN. My cars have NEVER been thru an automatic car wash and never will. ONLY THE BEST for my babies.
