Detailers Domain, an NJ-based auto detailer, are showing us an example on how to properly fix any damages incurred by the paint on your car. In this case, the project car is a beautiful M3Coupe in Santorini Blue.

Apparently during transport back home to NJ, the car wash wiped down incorrectly and the paint was scratched.

Here are some of the tools and products used in the process, along with a detailed video that showcases the steps taken.
