Scratches are part of car ownership: the wear and tear of everyday use takes its toll on the paint of your vehicle. Some scratches require professional work, but there are some light scratches you can fix yourself. So, without further ado, here’s how to remove light scratches from your car.
Wash and Dry Your Car
The first step is to wash and dry your car. Remember to always work in the shade when your vehicle is completely cool. Read this previous post to learn a simple but useful tip to keep in mind when you wash your car: A simple trick to reduces scratches and swirls.
Mark the Spot
If possible, mark the spot where the scratch is located using masking tape. Place two tiny squares of masking tape above and under the scratch so it’s easier to locate.
Apply a Scratch Removal Product
Apply the scratch removal product of your choice according to the instructions printed on the label. Apply the product as many times as needed and finish the process by applying it on a larger area to blend in the repair.
If the above process doesn’t eliminate the scratches on your car’s paint, then you need the help of a professional auto repair shop. At Inland Empire Auto Body & Paint we have the expertise to take care of any scratch and leave your vehicle looking like new.
