Any suggestions on removing small scratches from a Barents Blue Metallic XC70 caused by dog jumping up on car when enthusiastically greeting owner (of both Volvo and Dog) when owner returns home at the end of the day?<p>Dog (80 lb. Giant Schnauzer) has now been cured of this behavior, but scratches remain. <p>Scratches caused by the dog's "paw-nails" and aren't deep, but are noticeable. Scratches are on the angled/semi-horizontal part of the door just below the driver window.<p>What's the best approach here? (on the scratches, no dog advice please). <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Dog "paw-nail" scratches - how to remove? (Webhund)

I had the same problem in my V40 I bought from someone who had a big dog. Just use some touch up paint if they arent too deep. I also had scratches on the interior plastic pieces and used some sand paper to sand them out (forgot what grit).

Be for you fill them up with paint get some rubing compond it take time rubing them down and then you rub in some wax to clean up from the rubing combound and see how it looks and you can do it all over agen till you get the scratches down to you likeing if theay still show then you can use touch up paint but use a pice of paper so you jest put paint in the scratches it will look neater then big globs of touch up

I'm not a pro, but I recall a body-shop I visited said a good Compound product (by 3M I think), then a waxing should work if not too deep scratches.

May have been the 3M imperial hand glaze.

use something that works in stages...I've found nothing better for rounding out the sides of a scratch then Menzerna Intensive Polish followed with their Nanao Polish. Then apply your favourite wax / Zaino. Or pay a detailer to do it as you will most likely need to hit it with an orbital polisher and you won't want to burn the clear or leave swirl marks.
