Were all those scratches done by one vandal? I'd shoot those MoFos if I had my way. No, actually, I've changed my mind. I'd polish the scratches out using their face.

But getting back to the car, what a beauty. The finished job looks superb. You must be very pleased.

The customer was me!! lol
Yes the scratches were done by a vandal in my own yard...So it was basically an insurance job and I ended up paying a very reasonable amount.
But sadly its for sale now and so is my 123.They wont make the trip to Oz.The cost of converting them is much too expensive.

No your not picky!!
Those are not scratches they are spot we identified for deeper sanding and they were marked with a white marker..Since this was an insurance issue I ended up paying less then $600.00 bucks for the whole thing.The adjuster was a very nice guy he only deducted 15% for depreciation that was it...I was blown away!
It ended up costing the insurance almost 3000.00$
