Learn how to repair a deep scratch in the paint of your car. In this case someone keyed my car so I will show you how to remove a deep scratch from that using a touch up paint pen. Fixing scratches in your car's paint is simple and if they are just clear coat scratches it is even easier.
To remove deep scratches you need to clean the scratch, sand the scratch, use touchup paint on the scratch, sand that paint smooth with the factory paint job, add clear coat, and wet sand that smooth with the factory paint. Then you can polish the whole panel and you are done!

    Recently someone keyed my car, I used your method. My car is a dark blue color (Audi Scuba blue) when I started so sand down the applied paint, it faded and the scratch came out as faded blue. I'm not sure if I did something wrong? anyone have any idea why? Is it the paint that I purchased or is it because of a dark color ?

    Hey, guys, ChrisFix here!

    And today, I'm going to show you how to repair
    a deep scratch in your car's paintwork.

    You can see right here, we have a really deep
    scratch that goes across the entire fender

    which was from somebody who
    keyed the car, they vandalized it.

    Now, if you have a deep scratch cause somebody
    keyed the car because a shopping cart hit it

    because you scraped up against something or
    somebody scraped up against you, whatever

    the deep scratch was caused by, I'm gonna
    show you how to repair it inexpensively using

    one of these automotive paint pens.

    Now, a paint pen like this is around $15 to $20
    and I want you to keep that in mind because

    this isn't gonna get you 100% perfect results. It's
    not going to be like if they re-sprayed the panel.

    The best way to repair this would be to sand
    the entire panel down to remove the scratch

    and then respray and feather and blend
    your paintwork into the adjacent panels.

    Can you also do this to interior pieces? My girlfriend has a VW beetle 2008, and some of her interior is plastic, that is the same color as the paint on the body of the car. Am I able to do the same procedure, on plastic? It's less of scratches, and more like a chip.

    If it’s on black plastic and the color of your car is a bright color, I’d recommend putting a grey or light primer in it before paint.

    I ordered the polish and the sandpaper. The sandpaper comes in a multipack goes from 1000-7000.
