    image.jpeg This particular house is set quite high up from the road, pulled hose out by car in drive which sits some 6ft below the house, never gave it a thought till they sent me the pics, seems I pulled the hose along the car paintwork as I was going to the back of the house, silly lack of concentration now looking like a bloody claim :(

    Going to look at it tomorrow to see if I can T-cut it out.

    So thats one lesson learned, watch the hose near cars!!

    Pulled hose off reel past car to get round the back, hose must of run alongside the bodywork and done that, as the driveway sits much lower than the raised up house.

    I've been told by my car valeter mate it will machine polish out fine, hope so!!

    I hope it comes out. Have you lost their custom? A tip for newbies; pull off enough hose that you will need for the job you are working on up to the first corner/turn/obstacle.

    Yes normally do just that, was just a school boy error due to rushing. Looking back after it happened I thought what a silly muppet lol!!

    Amazed the hose could do that but yes one for newbies to be careful about!!

    I would think the hose had various grit/bits on that caused it, was defo the hose mate, there decent people and I did it by accident, shows what it can do on paintwork, hopefully very light hazes when I look in person that will T Cut out.

    Go to car spares suppliers or halfords and buy some cutting paste
    Use that on a rag and work all the scratches out with a circular motion
    Job done
    Then give the patch a quick polish and it should be fine
