Fix Car Scratches – Start Here
This is designed to give you a overview to determine how to fix car scratches that are either just in the top clear coat or more severe scratches and scrapes that have penetrated to the color, primer or base metal (or plastic)
Learning how to eliminate a scratch is really simple if you understand just exactly what a scratch on a car is in the first place.
So just what the heck IS a scratch anyway?
It’s important to understand that automobiles built after about 1990 have what is known as a “2 stage” finish. There is a base color and a top “clear coat”. (primer under the base color)
The top clear coat is much harder and designed to resist UV and environmental factors. While the top clear coat is relatively hard it is not scratch proof and somewhat delicate. When you permanently remove a “typical” scratch it is only in the top “clear coat”.
Scratches show up white and stand out because the scratch is in the clear coat…even if it touches the base color. When you remove scratches that are in the top clear coat you are effectively removing a very tiny amount of the clear coat where the scratch was. It’s OK since the amount you are removing is very slight.
A scratch in the clear coat reflects light which is why it looks so ugly. Its similar to facets in a diamond reflecting light.
Good news…80 % of car scratches are in the clear coat layer only.
Here is how to quickly decide how to approach the scratch on your vehicle:
- Pull your fingernail across the scratch… can’t feel it? It can be removed permanently.
- Just barely feel it? Could be “borderline” and with a simple technique can be completely removed.
- Definitely feel it (or obvious scrape , chip etc) Touch up paint will be necessary.
For the 80 -90% of clear coat scratches that pass the fingernail test you can remove them with the correct technique.
The Ultimate Car Scratch Remover is a STEP- BY-STEP system - if you can watch a few videos, you can do this!
- Clean the area and inspect
- Remove Scratch (Polish)
- Enhance the luster of the paint (Glaze)
- Seal the restored paint (professional polymer paint sealant)
For some (not all!) clear coat scratches you may need to wet sand ,
fingernail and loose key chain scratches around door handles
Dog claw scratches on a door
Metal shopping cart grazing the side of the car
Some bird splat etchings fall under this catagory
Polish alone might not completely eliminate the scratch. Wet sanding your brand new car can be pretty scary… however The Ultimate Car Scratch Remover System leaves every other product in the dust when it comes to safely wet sanding a modern clear coat.
The System features a patented sponge called the “SafeTsand” with replaceable 3000 grit latex “paper”. It so effective and safe that professionals use it on fresh 24hr old clear coats to remove imperfections. So you can imagine how safe it is when you remove a scratch on a fully cured clear coat that is 6 months or a year old.
