    got a couple of light scratches on my matt black tank of my fatbob, apart from the emotional turmoil, I would need to know how I can fix that (the scratches, that is!!!).
    anyone?

    Exprim, sorry to here you problems with paint in the great land down under. There are two guys I know you can help you...Whatyardwork and Steve07, who know paint very well. Another thing you might do is go to the tabs near the top of this webpage and click the SEARCH tab and type keywords like scratch paint

    Also may want to look in the SELF HELP TIPS for methods to do the repair. Make sure you use HD paints (usually a layered blend base coat(s) with matte/clearcoat) that must be blended in very carefully.

    I hate to say it, but I don't think you can do much for the denim paint. If you try to buff it out it's gonna start to polish the paint, and you don't want a big shiny spot on your denim paint.
