i have the same problem, i have heard of a crayon type wax that is the color of your car that you can put over it and it covers it up a little. but i have yet to find it, does anyone know what i am talking about?
is it big and really noticeable? Because one of my friends had his entire car keyed, and with the insurance money he got, he bought an entire bumper-replacement body kit, had the spoiler removed, trunk holes filled, and the entire car repainted!
Loyalty of FL NECO had a good way of removing deep scratches and chips. They performed the mod at one of their local meets a year or so ago. It involved paint, fine sanding, and some 3M products. I wish I still had the how-to, but it got lost when the PM format changed.
fill out a police report hunny...if they find that the same thing happened to alot of people and they find out who did it, you're all set it's a long road but in the end you might get some money. i'm just getting paid back for the f*cks that egged my car in May. believe me, if you know who did it, it gives you so much more gratification when they have to pay for your stuff. good luck!!
A guy I work with had his Alero keyed, He bought some of that GS27 he saw on an infomercial, used it and it worked pretty good. If you run your finger over it you can still feel it, but you don't notice it by looking at it.
I'd also try to first clay bar it, then wax it with a couple coats of good wax...if that doesnt work, try using some scratch remover (i use Blue Coral). but if all else fails, try to have it buffed out at a body shop. in the case that the scratches are so deep that they need to be repainted...im sorry dude! i know how that goes
My car got keyed on the trunk not too long ago... I took it to a body shop cuz I had other work that had to be done anyhow. After they buffed it and did a little bit of touch up I can't even see it anymore. I got all my scratches buffed and the chips touched up all over my car for a little less than $100. Good luck!
Forgot I wanted to review this thing:
Mothers Speed® Clay 2.0 - Clay Bar
I used it for car-show preps for fest and really liked it. I used it with just a bucket of water for rinsing after the first car wash. Afterwards, I rinsed and dried the car one more time before waxing.

Personally I like the look of the hood scoops on the 2002 cougar, and I want to get one for my 02. I have the paint so color isn’t a killer for me.
I looked on eBay and can’t justify minimum 175 on a non functional hood scoop :/
any other places to check? Scrap yards don’t have any.
Heres the damage.
In the first picture the cracked fiberglass overlaps each other a bit. Do I cut the whole section and re fiberglass?
In the second picture where the paint is chipped away around the license plate, do I just body fill that? Or lay some FG over and body fill?
Hello everyone, I've been looking for custom headlights for my cougar and haven't had any luck finding any at all. Are there any places that manufacture custom headlights for my model car? I would like to "dress' my car up, I've seen people with same year model car and they look awesome with...
