My car will be 6 years old in October, and I just wanted to know what you guys and gals could recommend for getting out little scratches? I saw one of the banners on the site had a link to the AutoSharp Pen website. They have all of the color codes for Volvos so that seems like it might be a good way to go. Has anyone used one of the pens? Also anyone want to confirm that I have Aqua Blue Pearl Paint Code:431? Picture in sig.<P>

Probably nothing can help as muchas a good wax, but you may have good luck with that color matching fill kit. I've heard those work well.<BR>I have only tried this cheap product called GT-88 I think, just a tube with some special "chrystal fill" formula that fills in stratches and fills it in with color from surrounding paint. It works only about 1/4 as well as it shows on TV at best. Little tiny scuffs are gone but anything visable at more than a foot away remain but somewhat filled in. Maybe I just need to do more coats or something but I think I just threw it in the corner of the garage instead!<BR>If you try it let us now the product and results! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>

Other than on my front bumper there are no chips, I am not even really going to worry about the front of the car for now. Just little scratchs on the sides, none of which are deep enough to rust. I think I will order one of those pens, its only $20. I will let you know how it works for me.<P>

I'm glad I read your post...I think I'll try the Autosharp Pen myself. When I bought my motorcycle back in '98 I ordered some touch-up paint (lots of fairing)...I was surprised to receive something exactly like the Autosharp Pen...I always wondered why someone didn't do this for cars.
