Hi, I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. I'm going to give you a couple of quick tips on how to repair scratches on in your clear coat paint. If the scratches in your car or in your paint are slight, or they're only in the top layer of the coating, there's a clear coating above the actual painted surface. So, metal, paint, then your clear coat. If the scratch is in the clear coat, you can take it out with a buffing material. The buffing material is a waxed based cleanser that has a slight amount of grit, so that the scratch can be taken out of the surface of the paint. If the scratch has gone beyond the clear coat, there's no buffing that'll take it out. You have a scratch on your car and that'll need to be refinished by a professional. But if it's just in the clear, you can't see any color, and it's just a slight scratch, a mild buffing compound will take that scratch right out. And this is a quick tip on how to take scratches out of your clear coat. I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
