    Many thanks mcclonk , Number 7 and CTCEL, that covers it nicely. Will get a smart repair/ chipsaway quote or 2, definitely worth a try.

    Don't use a Smart Repairer on a Motability car, the car is not yours to do that with.

    Please just leave it as fair wear and tear or claim on the insurance and let them sort it properly.

    I use to use a retired Ford re-sprayer to spray over any scratches. He still is the master of his trade. He'd ask me to visit Colourtone where the owner came out, lifted the bonnet, checked the colour code then prepared a small quarter litre can of paint.

    My painter would drop me off at the train station then go back to his workshop to sort out the scratch and polish the car - magic!

    The car would take just a day to finish and it looked like new.

    Cost - £40 for the labour and I bought the paint which I've still got.

    There's always a man that can working from his garage or workshop under railway arches!
