It depends on how deep the scratch is. If it's shallow and only into the clear coat, it can generally be buffed out with compound and you'll never see it. If it's deep to the touch and goes into the paint to where you can see metal or undercoating the you will have to have it sanded down, smoothed out and repainted.

How can i remove scratch from the bodyof my car without spending lot of money


providing scratch isnt too deep you can buy a cutting compound from local factors and polish out. If a little too deep for this you can take back with a super fine wet and dry paper of around p1500 grade with plenty of soapy water first and then compound out but be careful not rub through to primer so very much a game of patience and compromise. If scratch is deep follow same instructions but day or so before touch in scratch to fill the scratch with paint and then carefully compound outer excess touchup so you simply leave paint in scratch.

2005 Lexus RX330. Brushed the side of door against a pillar resulting in white scratch marks. How do I get rid of these scratches short of taking to body shop.


I'm assuming the pillar is white and therefore transferred the paint onto your car. I've fixed this issue before with my Mothers RX350.

Clean any dirt from the area. Take a mild rubbing compound and rub in the direction of the scratch marks. It's a bit labor intensive, but after a few minutes you should see some improvement. If the scratch marks disappear, follow up with a polish wax to get rid of any mild scratches from the rubbing compound.
If the pillar actually removed paint from your vehicle, the best bet is to take your car into a body shop to get an estimate on repairs.

Scratch on car paint.


It sounds like it hasn't scratched through to the metal yet so you could:

1) Respray the whole panel to remove all unsightliness.2) Touch up the scratch, resulting in quite an ugly repaint.

Someone scratched the right side of my car with a piece of glass how can I get that out without having to get it painted


Hi Suzette, If the paint has been damaged through to the metal, there are no short cuts. If it is the top layer of paint which has been damaged there is a Turtle Wax product that may help you. In the event of needing to 'touch up' paint from your dealer. There should be a color code on one of the tags under the hood (bonnet), which will give a matched color. Regards John

I have a gmc acadia and the rear bumper on it is filled with scratches, what is the best repai solution without changing the bumper


body shop estimate on paint and body filler and most important flex additive in the paint Best repair then there are the do it yourself kits of body repair and activator combination for the filling of the scratches but then your skills/ knowledge of body repair are needed for the repaint. Preperation below is key to the look above. all flaws seen in the primer and the sealer which can be seen show up many times worse with the shiny paint.

i would have to estimate at least 500 dollars for a skin depending on the shop and the quality of paint you use.

Same problem with grill bubbling what to do 2004 niss murano


I've decided to "black" mine out with a high gloss black. First I'm going to take the grill off & see if I can use airplane paint remover on a small area to remove the coating that is bubbling.

If so, then i'll primer the surface & repaint it as is since it should be smooth after the remover works and I scrape it down and wash it clean.

You could then leave it once the clearcoat is removed, re-coat it with clearcoat, or paint it any color, even to match. Automotive spray paint is available at auto-parts stores for this type of material, just get the right can of spray paint.

If I find the paint remover won't work without hurting the actual grill, I'll use some fine grit sandpaper and prep the surface, then primer it and paint it high gloss black. Color choice is optional of course!


Maybe this will help.

Home repair of scratches on car door


if the scratch is very shallow, you may be able to rub them off using rubbing compound. otherwise, you will have to match the color of the color and use spray paint to fix the scratch. This is assuming that the car does not have a clear coat. if it does, then I recommend you take it to a body shop.
