In this quick video, I explain the process of How To Fix a Scratch on a Car – Buffing Out Scratches!
First, you want to identify the scratch. Then you want to clean the area with a damp shammy or cloth to take out road grime and dust. You don’t want to buff dirt onto the paint, you’ll actually defeat the purpose for taking out your scratches.
If you have a light surface scratch like this example video then you can just buff out the scratch by using a wool pad and compound. If you’re scratch is a deep scratch then you may need to wet sand the scratch so you can melt the clear together when buffing with your compound.
When buffing, it’s best to use a variable speed buffer this way you can control your pad speed. You never want to buff at full speed because you’ll just burn your paint and or dry out your compound too fast.
Buffing takes time. Have patience when buffing, use more compound when you start seeing the compound dry and disappear. Keep buffing in a up and down, side to side motion and stay withing a 18″X18″ area at a time. You don’t want to spread yourself too thin.
Once you start seeing the gloss in one section, then move on over across the panel.
