How To Fix A Scratch On A Car

With the right tools, skills and experience it is possible to repair almost any scratch on a car and return the entire vehicle to a uniform, like-new appearance. Following a proper repair, the scratch will be fully invisible. Color Recon has years of experience in skilled, expert scratch removal and repair; we have the most advanced techniques and equipment to ensure that your scratch repair is perfect and undetectable.

First, we’ll assess the depth of the scratch. Next, we’ll ensure we have the exact match for your car’s paint. Our next step is to prepare your vehicle for the scratch repair. The final step is to level, polish and perfect the touch up.

  • First, we’ll assess the depth of the scratch. The paint finish of a car is composed of three layers: primer, base coat and clearcoat. The base coat gives your car its color and the clearcoat protects your car’s finish. The deepest scratches penetrate the primer, while superficial scratches might only nick the clearcoat.
  • Next, we’ll ensure we have the exact match for your car’s paint. Automotive paints have a unique factory paint code that can be obtained from manufacturers and dealers in order to ensure there is a perfect match.
  • Our next step is to prepare your vehicle for the scratch repair.Before applying the matching paint, we’ll clean the whole area with a preparatory solvent as it is important that the entire area be completely free of all dirt, debris, rust or oils. We’ll then prepare the damaged area directly by feathering the edges with special sanding tools to ensure a seamless touch up. Touch-up paint can be applied with special small brushes and other tools suitable for the size of the damage to your paint job, followed by a clearcoat identical to your car’s finish.
  • The final step is to level, polish and perfect the touch up. With a wet sanding system, we’ll ensure your scratch repair is flush to your entire paint job, followed by fine-cut polishing the area with a specialized car polisher.

This process leaves behind no buffing marks or indication that the paint was ever disturbed. With Color Recon’s expert car scratch repair service, the repair will be entirely undetectable with a perfectly even and smooth presentation across your entire vehicle.
