Our brand new car was found that scratch in painting how do with that ?


Go to your local auto parts store and get some polishing compound [Maguire's - 3m] and microfiber polishing rags and put a little on rag and rub in circular motion then a final polish................ Good rule of thumb.... if it catches your fingernail in depth its probably not coming out. If that's the case, seek auto detailer that can buff paint before body shop they can fine sand & buff for a fraction of money.

Cleaning foggy, oxidized headlight covers on my 2000 Subaru Outback with household items?nck AWD, 4 cylinder wagon...with?


Rubbing compound will buff off the oxidation that effects (clouds) the outside surface of plastics. Some waxes have a little abrasive that will help do this. Toothpaste will also work mixed with wax. Use some muscle and buff til it is dry to restore the plastic gloss. Shops use an electric or pneumatic buffer with a wool or foam pad and extra fine rubbing compound.

Someone spraypainted my car how do I remove it?


Depends on the paint.
Most of the time you can use rubbing or polishing compound to "rub" the spray paint off.
As for the sugar, if you have not cranked the engine yet, or turned on the key, you may be able to take the gas tank off and clean it out without having to flush the fuel lines.

you are going to have to buff out the paint with a polish compound if you dont know how to buff a car properly you will end up with swerle marks keep the buffer flat use 6000 rpms and dont keep it on one spot too long or you will burn the pain i sugest if you dont know how to take it to a detail shop and get it buffed out. there are diffrent compounds that work better than others .

Removeing scrathes from metal


Depends how big the scratches are.

some will buff out buy using a good car wax and polishing the scratches out. As long as the scrathes have not gone through the paint down to the metal it will work. If you get some "Tar gone" its and abrasive for getting tar off paint that can some times be a little abbrasive and can get the scratch rubbed out prior to going over the top of that area again after with a good high quality car polish (one you apply by hand with a cloth and rub to a shine - not one you tip in a bucket of water and wash the car with).

If the scratches a really large like wide than a human hair, or if the metal is dented, then the buffing is not going to work and if you can't live with it you may want to consider respray via a car body shop. you can do it your self with a spray can but cars today have a clear top coat for a start that will mean respraying your self will look bad and thats if you can even get the color matched exactly, so if its bad and buffing wont work go see a body shop for a quote.

Rear Bumper Cover


you would need to heat it up from behind to remove the dent and the rubbing compound should work as long as it hasnt penetrated your paint layer
