It depends on how deep it is.

Color Cure- Car Polish with ChipStick-

Turtle Wax(R) Color Cure- with ChipStick- is a color enriched car polish that fills-in swirl marks and light scratches.

Technologically advanced formula fills-in swirl marks and light scratches.

Unique formula blends in with original car color.

ChipStick- can be used to fill in deeper scratches and stone chips.

Restores the finish to older cars making them look new.

Leaves a deep, brilliant shine.

Polyurethane enriched formula provides long lasting protection.

Available in white, black, red, blue, green and silver and tan/gold

...

Color Cure- Usage Tips

Wash hands after use immediately with soap and water. If the polish is difficult to get off around fingernails, use a soft bristle brush to scrub around these areas.

Color Cure works on a wide range of colors. The Color Cure does not have to be close in to the vehicle color. Black Color Cure can be used on charcoal gray, dark silver or pewter metallic. Silver Color Cure is too light for these colors. If the vehicle is teal or a form of blue-green, use the color you feel is appropriate. Some paint colors are more on the green side, while others favor the blue side.

Always use the ChipStik first to fill in stone chips or scratches. You may not be able to find them if the wax is applied first. For best results, apply ChipStik when the surface is warm to the touch.

If your vehicle has a mica containing finish which changes color depending on the viewing angle or time of day, choose a Color Cure shade that is close to the darkest color that can be seen in the paint.

Never use a contrasting Color Cure shade on the vehicles paint. Using Black on a white car will make all of the scratches or imperfections look black. The product can not be used to change the original color of the car.

Sponge applicators work best for applying the product. Soft cotton cloth works best for buffing the finish.

Use ChipStik periodically to fill in chips as soon as they occur to prevent future corrosion to painted metal.

Use ChipStick around the house. ChipStik works well on wrought iron furniture or other outdoor furniture or painted metals.

Grrrr... this happened today to me as well angry I just don't understand some people - if you feel you're touching the car in front, what do you do? You back off and try again. You DO NOT continue turning! thumbsdown This really pisses me off - new car too.

Anyways, I'd love to see the before and after pics.

sure, but by the time you pay your deductible, you might as well just go out and buy a brand new aftermarket bumper out of your own pocket..

Wow, those b4 and after pix look great.


I think I have the best "parallel parking battle scar". Some jerk with a trailer hitch reversed over my car and now I have a huge gash and tons of surface scratches. I will try that product at least for the surface scratches as far as the gash goes, I would need it sanded down or a new front bumper.
