Cheap & Easy Way of Fixing Scratches

if you're like me.. you're tired of having to repaint or touch up your front bumper.. or refinish the little road rash your side skirts get. i found a perfect alternative to having to spend $100's of dollars you just need a black washable marker (or w/e color car you have) and fill in the water color and let the abrasions soak it in.. then you just buff off the excess with a hot, damp cloth. it actually looks amazing.. you can't even tell there was a scratch there, it's especially useful with black cars. only works on shallow scratches that leave a dull finish though, nothing that is too deep or fine.

I think a few of the detailers here are going to cringe when they read this.
