How You Can Repair Minor Paint Scratches Yourself

It's common to find small scratches and dings to the paint job of your car. If the spot is merely surface level without showing metal underneath, then you may wish to touch up the paint yourself. We want to equip you with these tips and tricks to get the job done right.

First, it's important to choose the correct color for your tube of touch up paint. Merely looking at your car is not the best way to select a hue. Instead, you can find an exact match for your car by looking at the vehicle's factory color code.

Second, prepare the surface for the touch up paint. You should wash the area, then lightly and gently sand the surrounding area with 220 grit sandpaper. Carefully clean the area again.

Third, prepare and apply the paint with an application per the paint tube's instructions. Deeper scratches may require multiple applications of paint for full resolution.
