Deep scratch need help

Hello
My friend was leaving the car and her belt hit my paint. Please tell me how to remove it or hide it and how much it will cost to repair. It doesn't show from the outside but when u open door it shows.

Use a rubbing compound on it followed by a polishing compound then a finishing compound. Finish with a wax. You will need a high speed buffer. Be careful not to burn the paint on the edge.

You can touch it up of course. A dealer will cost a couple hundred bucks probably.

Re: Deep scratch need help

if you can feel it with your finger nail chances are its to deep to buff out, you can look into dr chip and that may help, but it might never fully go away. At least its not in the middle of the hood though.

Ya it's pretty deep to the metal. It doesn't show from outside so it's not that big of a problem. I talked to my mechanic and he said something about sanding and polishing. Will that work?

Re: Deep scratch need help

if you dont know much about body work or touch up stuff let a pro handle it, dr chip is a chip paint fixing system that seems to have good results. It wont ever look perfect but you can make it look much less noticable.

I would look into maaco. Definitely cheaper than a dealer. They have always done great work for me in the past. Wouldn't hurt to get a quote.
