Should buff out, first try some Meguiar's Scratch X to hide any blemishes, then hit it with a fine polish. Also remember to do a once over with some Carnauba wax once you have finished, it helps prevent s**t like this from happening :wink:

On a side note, how the f**k did that happen? Did you drive it off big a** ramp trying to perform a jump and something went wrong?

if anyone from newzealand knows the coast road just after maraetai they know its quite rough. was going around the corner at about 80ks, suitable for the long corner, wasnt sharp. and hit a pothole which sent my steering off. over corrected it into the cliff face and flipped it then done a 180 before stopping. no one in the car was injured other then a couple of cuts and bruises.

Jeez, glad everyone was okay man, which is the main thing. I have no idea of the names of the roads out that way but I have most likely driven through there. Last time i went out to beach at Maraetai, a few months ago, they had re-done a lot of the roads, made them slightly wider and what not but still some roads were pretty average considering the 80-100kmh speed limits. Before it used to be terrible, the roads were as rough as guts, lanes were real narrow, loose gravel all over the outermost edges of the road, so crashes were always very common.

yeah mate this was on the bit that hadnt been redone yet, yeah i came out worse with a small gash on my head but nothing major.

the roads are so narrow its a squeeze to fit two cars down it, also with a drop on one side into the water its pretty dodgy
