What kind of polish did you use? Will Maguire's Scratch-X work?
If its not grown it's mined!
2013 Ingot Silver Focus SE HB manual, 201a, winter pkg, moonroof. Snorkel delete/K&N drop-in and a bunch of little stuff. Great sticker placement.

I can't say yay or nay no the Scratch X because I haven't used it. A lot of what I use on my car is Meguiars, though. I use M205 with a white pad and Show Car Glaze with a grey pad.

It's the B-pillar pieces and the one at the rear of the back doors. I think it would look ok witgh some faux CF or just simple black pieces covering them for protection since they seem to scratch easy.
