whats the best scratch remover? 4th gen max

I hav a 95 hunter green máx, trying To come as close as i can get To the factory color, which I dont know exactly but just guessing hunter green. I have lots of scratches on my pass rear door that are noticeable and want To try and cover up without getting a complete paint job. Do scratch removers work or are they a waste of money

You will never get a perfect match on your own IMO.

How to remove a scratch all depends on how deep it is. For minor scratches that only affect the clearcoat I wetsand with 2000 or 3000 then use meguiars swirl remover 2.0. If your basecoat has also been scratched then you'll need to reapply the basecoat and clearcoat after sanding. You'll need to provide photos to get an accurate answer.

The 3 digit color code is on the metal plate located on the passenger side firewall.

To get an idea of how to remove scratches watch the videos in the sticky thread that deezo provided.

If you need replacement paint, I recommend automotivetouchup.com - I've used their BT4 rattlecan on many parts and the color-match is flawless with 3 coats of base and 3 coats of clear.
