2008 G8 GT: Little Things Make a Big Difference

December 18, 2009


How can we even dream about selling our 2008 Pontiac G8 GT when there is a huge scratch under the driver's door handle? It's the first thing a buyer would see on a test drive.

Some folks from Turtle Wax came by and showed me this product so I thought I'd give it a try. Michael Deddo, Turtle's senior research chemist, said the scratch was probably just in the clear coat. He was right as you will see in the before and after pictures on the next page.

The pen applicator made it easy to apply although it dribbled down the side of the door. The kit comes with various polishing pads, paint clarifying compound and spray lubricant. I didn't do any sanding because the sratch is basically gone.

There are a lot of products like this on the market. What we really liked was how easily the pen can be used to repair individual scratches quickly.
