When asked, the team of mechanics explained to us how they go through each of the stages to remove the ugly scratches from the smooth surface of the car body.
Removal of the Scratches
The scratches on the car surface usually happen because of some sharp object fleshing out through the car body surface, tearing off the layers of car paint. Some scratches might go deeper to the next level, exposing the metals of the car body, making them prone to accumulate rust.
Such scratches do have the ability to damage the car beyond the apparent level. If not treated and repaired in time, such damages can spread wider, making it easier for the car paint to start peeling off, more and more. Hence., it is very necessary that every car owner should take the scratches seriously and go for a repair job as soon as possible to avoid further damages.
At a reputable auto body shop, the mechanics will start with the removal of the scratches with the help of sandpaper. They make even on the surface by scrubbing off the paint of the affected area. Once the scratch affected area becomes smooth, they start with the process of repainting the area, with the same shade of color.
Repainting the Affected Area
When your car body paint is affected with an ugly scratch, apart from smoothening the surface area again, the other major job of the mechanics is to repaint the affected area, in such a perfect fashion, that there should not be a single sign of a repair visible on the car surface. The technicians must make sure that the color tone and pattern match perfectly with the rest of the car body and the affected and repaired area must not appear distinctive and different.
For this, the best way is to refer to the car’s user manual, where the color shade of the car will be mentioned, and by referring to the color shade name and number, the auto body shop can procurer the same quality and specifications of the exterior paint color. But apart from the selection of the color, what is more, important is to see that the meddling of the color is done perfectly, commented a senior car paint professional whom we have met at the center of the paint scratch repair in Rathdrum.
