Deep Clear Coat Scratch Removal

Modern automotive clear coats vary between manufacturer and model. Incorrect removal of scratches from car paint will likely see a full respray of the affected area. The general rule of thumb, or finger, is that if you can run your fingernail in the scratch and it holds. The scratch is too deep for cutting out.

However, that does not mean it can not be repaired. There are options available which do not require a full respray of the panel, as with this Ford Mondeo. There were many dog claw scratch marks on the paint that were fully removed. What’s more, our full paint cut polish and detailing service covers the removal or softening of scratches where feasible.
