I’m a big fan of keeping older vehicles going for the long haul. Tender loving care can go a long way in this regard. My F-150 pickup truck is 1990 and our family van is a 2004 Toyota Sienna. Watch the video below showing how I buff out an ugly scratch in the Sienna using a woodworking sander, a foam buffing pad and some autobody rubbing compound. This doesn’t work all the time, but it is worth trying.
