Auto Nicks And Scratches

No matter how hard you try to guard against them, small nicks or paint chips find their way onto new car paint finishes sooner or later.  If you drive your car on a daily basis sooner or later, your new paint job will suffer some degree of minor damage.  Whether it be by a rock chips from traffic, parking lot door-slammers or an accidental mishap.

Minor nicks and scratches can sometimes be polished or buffed out.  They must be shallow and expose only paint at their deepest point.  If primer or bare metal is visible, you must apply new paint.

And that’s where we can help.  Compared to tiny nicks, long, deep scratches are a serious problem, only a body shop can fix it properly.

At West Coast Body and Paint, we carefully sand the scratches smooth and then feather in new layers of fresh paint, until you can’t tell where the damage was originally.
