How light car scratch repair is done
If the scratches are light, it is possible to carry out very simple car scratch repair by just polishing with a compound. This is as long as the scratch has not penetrated the clear coat into the colour.
The surface needs to be cleaned before starting the polishing. In the process of polishing, some of the clear coat would be removed. It needs to be done carefully with minimum polish or a respray of the protective layer would be necessary.
Repairs for deeper car scratches
If the scratches are deeper, a touch up of the paint would be necessary. This would also protect the car body against rust from the exposed portion. The depth of the scratch would determine the extent of car paint repair that needs to be carried out to restore the car body. This is because there are different layers that could be penetrated – the topmost being the clear coat, followed by the base coat, then primer, and the metal body.
- Scuff the affected surface without causing abrasion on the rest of the car paint work.
- If the scratch has gone into the primer, we would apply the primer layer first and leave it to dry.
- Thereafter we would apply the car touch up paint in thin layers to create a build up similar to the original.
- The paint work then needs to be left to dry.
- The clear coat then needs to be applied on.
- To complete the car paint repair, a layer of wax is then applied to the affected surface, and then to the rest of the car so the car surface looks the same.

My car aircon was not functioning and I was not sure what the cause was. I initially brought my car to the dealer workshop and was told the compressor is down. But the price quoted for the compressor replacement was so high. I then gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call, and the price turned out to be much lower, and quality of service good. Thumbs up! - Joel Tan, Bukit Batok
