Just wondering if anyone knows any good products (not a plunger cause there really small) to get rid of hail dings, and the little scratches, I got the exact match paint color for my car but it looks like its nail polish when applied.... any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

P.S.
I see alot of Intrepids with those white stripes, is that factory or done by them vinyl stickers? If stickers or paint where can I get them and how much! :)

There are some products out there that supposedly "remove" scratches from paint. However, the dings in your car from hail and shopping carts are a different story. While they're too small to be pulled with a suction cup, you can't really get them out unless you get behind the sheet metal and work them back out with a small block of wood or rubber block. They dont' require a lot of effort, so you only need to apply a small amount of force where the ding is. It then should come out pretty nice.

And what white stripes on the Intrepid? Racing stripes?? I haven't seen any other car with racing stripes cept mine and another car in the member's pictures section. Must be some other graphics I havent' seen yet... :confused:

You might be able to get some of those dings out in the summer. Its not a sure-fire thing, but it CAN work. Cover your car in tarp and let it bake in the sun for a little while. Little tip I learned :)

Insurance doesn't cover things that were in the car when I bought it :( I would do the rubber block thing, but I don't know how to get the stfu door panel off :p

dry ice works well when it is warm... but I found that liquid nitrogen works even better :) just some of the perks of working in the chem department at a college. as for the scratches.. good luck, I would like some advice on that too.
