Scratches are uncially and can alter the value and look of your car. Hi I am Rebecca Breton and welcome to watchmojo.com and today we will be showing you how to fix those pesky scratches. You need to purchase primer paint and be sure to verify that the one you buy is for use on an automobile. Pick a primer that is lighter in color than your car so it is easily covered by the touch-up paint in one coat. Using a mild laundry detergent wash the scratch to remove any wax or coatings, which could affect your paint job. With fine-grained sandpaper, sand along the scratch to give the paint something to adhere to and make sure to removing any rust that may have collected. Remove the dust from your sanding by either blowing it way, or using a soft brush.
Arrange your work area so you can assure you will not get paint on places other than the scratch. Make sure once the compound is dry, sand the area flat and blow away excess dust. Spray on a small amount of primer to the scratch, and allow it to dry overnight. You can identify the color of paint you did for your car, by finding its vehicle identification number (VIN).
The VIN is located on a small metal plate, found on the dashboard on the driver's side. This number gives a description of your car that includes the precise paint shade. Therefore giving it to your dealership, or paint-supply store, they will help you get the right color of paint. Apply the paint to the scratch and wait for it to dry overnight. These steps apply to care whose paint is not enameled providing your car's VIN to the dealer is a good way to know.
