At George Gee Kia Liberty Lake, we understand that scratches and dings happen to a paint job. When you don't need a whole paint job, you can touch up the small areas yourself. Getting the right supplies, and following all the steps, will help you get the job done and make your car look shiny and new again.

Scratches and Dings in the Paint

To prepare the area for a touch-up, make sure it is cleaned with soap and water. Use 220-grit sandpaper on the area, so the paint sticks and blends with the old paint. Mix the paint and apply with a paintbrush or the applicator it comes with.

Deep Scratches

Deep scratches that go down to the fiberglass or metal need an additional step. After the 220-grit sandpaper, allow the surface to dry and apply a primer. After the primer is dry, sand the area again with 600-grit sandpaper. Then, clean the area and apply the paint.
