Pros: simplicity
" Great and quick for superficial scratches - Deeper require more patience and time but results better than I could have expected. Quality product. "

Pros: it worked x1, price, all items needed in one box
Cons: i didn't work x2
" I never wrote product reviews but putting sand paper to paint work is a scary prospect and a balanced view will help others decided whether they want to do this.
First of all I reviewed this product quite extensively before purchase and generally it has got really good reviews. I also spent a lot of time watching 'how to' videos and reading guides.
I decided to to a test on the door sill of my car before tackling the scratch on my rear quarter panel that I purchased the product for. I found a scratch on the door sill around 6cm long and 2mm wide. This scratch is deeper and wider then the one on the quarter panel so I thought if it works on the door sill then it will work on the quarter panel. Plus if I make a hash of it, the scratch is in a mostly hidden area,
I followed the instructions exactly even though these were slightly confusing as there is different instructions for different types of scratch. I was amazed by how the product made the scratch on the door sill disappear. It was scary putting the sand paper on but it all worked out with no signs of the process.
This gave me a confidence to tackle the scratch on the quarter panel which is around around 45cm long and less than 1mm wide, and not very deep; mainly in clear coat. I repeated the process again looking at the instructions and following them exactly. The result wasn't great with the scratch still visible. So I repeated the process a week later with the theory that because this scratch is longer, I may not have applied a consistent layer of the clear coat pen to fill the scratch. This time round I primed the pen and squeezed it to get a good flow of clear coat. I applied it in small 5 cm sections, slowly making sure there was a thick application. Be careful if you do this... it may run down the paint work. I also gave it longer then the recommended 24hrs to cure before I began the sanding. It didn't work this time either. So I've applied a thick layer of coloured T-cut to fill the gap, AG SRP so the polymers fill the void and finished with AG HD wax. The scratch is reduced but still visible from certain angles. I put this down to the T-cut and AG products rather then the TW Scratch repair although it would of filled some of the void.
I don't know why it repaired the deeper but all be it smaller scratch and not the finer but longer one on my quarter panel but now I'm going to get a smart repair. This price is good even though in my experience it works 1/3 of the time but because of that I cannot recommend this product. Especially given the risks of putting sand paper to paint for it not to work. "

Pros: cheap alternative to expensive garage repair costs
Cons: does not disappear the scratch completely
" The product is good if used according to the instructions however, I won't say it will make your deep scratches disappear completely shown like in you tube videos but at least bring them to an acceptable limit. It works the best if you use this with touchup paint instead of the resin pen. Overall it is a recommended product since it is much cheaper then going to a garage for a repair. "

" So my new Auris was parked on the road adjacent to my house. And as i was about to leave for work, i notice a huge scrape across the front side of my bumper. Most of the scrape induced damage to the coating of the car but there were some scratches up to the paint, primer and even the steel layer.
I am totally new to cars (having cycled most of my life) and a novice when it comes to DIY.
I decided to buy this kit along with the halfords toyota eclipse pack. the touch up paint (not provided) was needed for all the areas reaching the paint, primer and steel layer. The kit itself was only useful in removing the scrapes/ minor scratches affecting the coating layer.
Following the instructions very carefully on the leaflet provided with the kit and applying huge amount of effort and force - when applying the compound- (6ft2 + 85kg), i am happy to say, there is little/ no sign of the car ever having scrape/ scratch (you literally have to look at the place of the chip from about 2inches away to notice something wrong. And as for the scrape, no sign of it ever existing). It looks immaculate. And here i was thinking about taking it to a garage and having to spend in excess of £100 to get it fixed.
no matter how deep the scratch is, halfords touch up paint kit along with this product is all you need to fix the issue. (make sure the paint kit corresponds with the manufacture paint code of your car). "

" As long as you follow exactly what it says and prep it properly the results are awesome, I have put before and after pictures.
This is my first bike and as its less than 12 months old I was gutted when I dropped it and couldn't really get away with buying new panels and getting them sprayed, so I thought I would try it and see if it was any good. Judge for yourselves.
I would definetly recommend this product and will be buying it again no doubt
