Best way to Repair Paint Scratches On A White 2012

Tue Oct 09, 2018 10:24 am

I have some scratches on the rear fender and rear door which has removed the white paint, but there is no body damage. Likely caused by a shopping cart.

I have seen some videos on YouTube on how to repair them.

Annoying, but not extremely significant, I was wondering if any have had their car with a similar problem professionally touched up or even done a touch up themselves and how did it turn out?

The white is a multi-step paint process. We had a new front bumper cover professionally repainted after an accident and the body shop did a very good job matching the rest of the car. I fear a DIY job on scratches might look worse than the scratches, but you could always give it a go and if it turns out terrible, you could turn it over to the pros
