How to safely remove fine scratches from your car's paint
Does your car have tiny scratches in the paint? Do you wash and wax your car, only to find that you cannot remove tiny swirls or scratches from your car's paint?
With the right products and the right knowledge, you can easily get rid of those hairline scratches on your cars surface.
Things You'll Need:
Clean, foam applicator pad
Good quality cloth towel
Microfibre Finishing Cloths
Farecla G10 Liquid Compound
Farecla Wax Top to achieve that showroom finish
First, you will want to wash your entire car.. It does not matter if you think your car is already clean. There are harmful elements in the air and environment that chemically bond to your car's paint surface. Washing your car thoroughly will help to remove dust, pollen, and debris from the road.
Next, you will want to completely dry off your vehicle. You do not want to begin treating the scratched areas of your cars surface until it is completely dry. Any soap or water left from the wash could dilute or diminish the effectiveness of the product.
After the car has been cleaned and dried, you can apply a high quality car care product like Farecla G10 or any other well respected brand onto the foam applicator pad. This product has the intent to remove:
1. Random, isolated scratches
3. Buffer swirls
5. Pore imbedding stains
6. Chemical etching
7. Acid rain spots
8. Etching from bird droppings
Apply a small amount of the scratch remover on your applicator pad. Rub the product into the scratched area until the area is completely covered. This process is not so much about applying the product and then removing it, it is more about applying the product and working it into the scratches. It will seem that the product is actually "filling in" the hairline scratches, but it is actually removing the top layer of your car's paint.
Once you work in the product on the desired areas of your car's surface, you will want to take a clean microfibre finishing cloth and polish the area using Farecla Wax Top to achieve that dream showroom finish.
