With rising vandalism repairing car scratches is getting increasingly common.
We work hard for our money to get nice things around us so when our prized car gets scratched and needs car scratch repairs it is not only upsetting but can often be costly. There are different techniques for repairing car scratches, all have different prices due to the level of complexity and overall finish of the car scratch removal or repair. We can polish light scratches out, touch small scratches in using car touch up paint, we can sometimes effect a smart repair as we have a smart repair service that can do small minor paintwork repairs. If the car scratch is on a larger panel like a bonnet or roof or if it continues down the side of your car then it will need a complete panel respray or a side out respray. The good news is we can do all of the above techniques and get your car looking good again at a reasonable cost.
Repairing car scratches – full panel prep for large scratches
This BMW had scratches on the passengers side quarter panel and rear bumper corner, they were so bad they could not be polished out or even touched in so the only way to repair the scratches on this car was a full panel repaint. We sanded the scratches out and applied some 2k primer, then prepped the BMW up ready for top top coat paint.
The rear bumper was removed and so was the door handle. We had to spray the door and sill cover to be able to blend the colour. I know blending often seems unnecessary to the non trade person but it really is the only way to guarantee a first class, non detectable paint finish. You want your car paint repair right and this is the way to do it.
The professional way to repairing car scratches – oven finishes
Once this BMW was all prepped up and masked out for the final top coats it was put into our low bake oven. Oven car spraying in our opinion is the best way to ensure a dust free finish, even with our smart repair service our work is done in the oven. Water based car paint is designed to be sprayed at 22c and in controlled, stable conditions, the right tools for the right job brings success.
Repairing car scratches is only a small part of what we do and as a body shop we find that it is very rewarding. All car paint repairs are exciting because its an opportunity to reverse time and car damage, we put the car back to pre accident condition or nearly always better.
