Well after washing the durango a few times, I can see the previous owner (a friend) didnt watch the small branches too much when offroading. There are light scratches, not down to primer, up and won the sides of it. They are light, again, not deep. Probably just the clear.

Basically, what steps do I follow to remove these? Rubbing compound? Polishing compound? Buff? Its black paint if that helps.

3M scratch remover (red bottle, removes 2000 grit size scratches), followed by a polishing compound then a glaze

make sure you use a porta-cable or random orbital buffer. It'll make a huge difference

Since we are on the subject of scratch removal. When i installed my Durango aluminum door sills i ended up scratching them up abit. Basically i had sand and rock on my shoes when i went to put pressure down on the sills so the 3M tape would stick. Is there anyway to remove some of the scratches or should i end up purchasing another pair. Any help would be great.

there's some metal buffing compound that works the same way as the 2000 grit sandpaper. You'll probably have to do the whole piece though so it all looks the same.

What the.......... That's horrible, did they get away with anything? We'll have to open up a NC manhunt to put these perpetrators to justice.

It's sad that people have to mess with other people's vehicles because they are nice and are jealous of them.
