Can you get your finger nail in between the scratch? In other words can you feel the scratch. If you can it cant be buffed out.

I had it looked at by a paint shop and they said they could fill it in with a brush and smooth it out and it might work for a $100 i dont know about that tho

Goin to the shop should be the lsst thing you do. Have someone who details cars look at it and see if they can get it out.

From what ive heard from touch up painting like that is you can always see the difference where it was fixed. Thats just what ive heard! I may be wrong tho!

It's like anything else you might do to your car.
If done half-@55ed, then yes it will be visible.
It is possible to blend in the repairs so they are virtually unnoticeable, but it takes some time and effort that most people are unwilling to commit to.


Check out some of the scratch fix solutions you can find in a Google search.
They have lots of new products and ways to blend in the repairs.
If it is only through the clear, then you should be able to fix it a lot easier since it does not involve the color layer.

Re: Wtf

if its just on the door the door skin can be removed and painted i fit comes to that, I HATE painting parts while they are on the car unless blending is needed. They say over spray washes off they are full of BS.

It does wash off, IF! the body shop uses the wash off, over spray protectant, which most of them do not.


It also has to do with how "hot" (fast dry) the thinner is that they use.
If they use a really hot thinner, then the over spray will usually dry before it settles on other surfaces and can be easily removed, but depending on the temperature and humidity that doesn't always work and other "cooler" thinners need to be used, which leads to the over spray sticking harder.

I'd doesn't look too bad try rubbing compound see if that works cuz it looks like jus your clear coat maybe into your color coat was scratched but yeah touch ups generally don't match especially when the have metallic flake it them they are obvious if you don't mind it leave it!! If it bugs you reply! And I'll tell you from what I can tell how it will most likely be repaired

They'll take your door apart (door handle, belt moulding, and mirror) then most likely blend your quarter panel cuz you'll need color just over the rearward part of the door so the with take your side scoop off and put it back on. If you get it done at a well known shop then you shouldn't have to worry about over spray and if you notice it when you leave then take you car back and have them clean it off. And no you can't paint just the skin of the door it's not removable I've only seen that on plastic door panels like Volkswagen and saturns
