Little dabbers to apply the clear or color. These are great! https://amzn.to/38VQPhj

4. Add color only if the scratch is deeper than the clear.

Pick your color or call the dealer for an exact match. You can also get some mixed at an automotive paint store.

5. Wet sand with the block to remove any high spots and then buff with the coarse pad and compound and then a fine pad and compound.

Obviously, my $80 budget was for materials used and I buy everything in bulk for the shop and have owned the polisher for years. If you are starting with no tools or materials understand that there are cheaper alternatives and lower quantity bottles of products to keep your budget low. You can buy polishers used on eBay or FB marketplace, cheaper pads at Harbor Freight, etc. Be creative and if you do buy in the quantities I do you’ll have enough product to fix scratches on literally hundreds of cars. I barely used any of the products and materials in this video and now have leftovers to use for years to come! Enjoy!
