When we first buy our cars, they look perfect: no scratches, no dents, no damages. However, starting from the very first days of use, we’re at risk of getting scratches all over the car, not to mention what happens after years of frequent driving. This all, of course, will ruin the aesthetic look of your vehicle. But there’s always a solution! No matter how annoying those scratches may be, you can always easily fix them, and here are some tips on how to do it in such a way, that it will seem like nothing ever happened.
First things first, you need to locate the scratch; you can continue only based on its position, since every scratch is different. Generally, there are three places a scratch can appear on:
Next, you need to check how deep or wide the scratch (and other damages listed) is. If it’s on the car paint or glass, you need to run your fingernail over the scratch; if it doesn’t catch on it, that means the scratch can be fixed in no time by you. Though if it does catch on, then the scratch is too deep, and you will have to refer to a car service shop.
The damage on the leather seats can be assessed without touching it, just look at what condition the seat covers are in. Of course, when there’s almost no leather left on the seat, you won’t succeed in saving your cover, so it’d be better to replace it with a new one.
Once you’re sure that the scratch is fixable, you need to prepare it and the area next to it for repair. Make sure to thoroughly clean the whole area and then wipe it dry with microfiber cloth. That way, you can make sure that no other particles will interfere with fixing solutions.
Now, having thoroughly inspected the scratch and prepared the area, start the fixing process by following these instructions.
