TWD - Deep scratch removal & reduction

We just finished a Stage 1 detail on this car:

But this is probably the most important part of the detail - deep scratch removal & reduction:

No photo editing trickery here. Just some hard and long hours spent correcting this boot lid through a 4 - 5 stage paint correction.
This is basically the last resort before a paint shop respray is necessary and is on strict request by the owner.
