Scratches are some of the most common defects in our vehicle, as well
as the most annoying.
It is not surprising that small accidents occur to vehicles that cause certain damages such as scratches that, despite being minimal, can be
a real nuisance and worsen the overall image. That's why we're going to see how to repair the scratches on your car.
There are two types of scratches that we should know When identifying the solution to the scratch that we want to repair,
we must take care of its depth to clarify them. Those referred to as
light or superficial, are those that do not penetrate the transparent
layer or the same paint, so they are not recognized by the naked eye because they do not penetrate the steel or cause a different color in the paint of the car.
While serious or deep scratches, penetrate the paint and it is
possible to see a different color to the original of the vehicle, and
may even leave the steel visible.
Start repairing scratches on your car
First, you must evaluate the depth of the scratch, since this will
determine if it is possible to repair it on your own or on the
contrary, it is essential to take it to a workshop. If you notice that
the scratch only lets see the transparent layer or the color will be much easier to repair at home.
When you notice a different color from your car or even if you can see the steel, its restoration is a more complicated degree. In these
cases it is recommended to take the car to a workshop.
If it is the first case, then you should carefully clean the scratch
area with soap and water, because if it is dirty it can cause more
damage to the paint of your car.
Then, sand the area where the scratch is located, this should be done by wrapping a sandpaper around a pad. Always passing the sandpaper towards the scratch and rinsing with water every time we pass the sandpaper, to be able to notice if we reach the bottom of the scratch. Depending on the severity of the scratch you can use a sandpaper of 1 500 grains for the mildest grains and 2,000 grains for the grains.
