Well I slipped off the road a little and sent the the side of the redwood into the brush

The marks aren't into the paint, but visible in the clear coat. Wax doesn't do much for them. Is this a job for a detail shop? or a paint shop? Anybody ever resolve tree branch marks before?

McQuires has a scratch remover that works well. Can be purchased at most auto supply stores

I scratched mine as well. I have tried several different brands of scratch polish and nothing has taken it all off. I think it has to be done by the professionals

I use a product called NOVUS. You can purchase it in #1 - plastic clean and shine, #2 - fine scratch remover, and #3 - can't remember, but it's too abrasive for our finish. I use the #2 and then wax.
