Fixing scuffs on carbon fiber frame?

Howdy all -

I have a few scuffs and nicks on my carbon fiber frame - nothing that has damaged the frame itself, just the lacquer coating - and I was wondering how people fix these. Just normal spray lacquer? Is there a specialized product? Thanks all!

If it's just the clear coat, you should be able to buff it out with some good polishing compound.

If it's just the clearcoat, try Meguiers ScratchX. It will remove scuffs, etc...
