Articles About How To Repair Scratched Car Paint

Welcome to the PaintScratch.com automotive touch up paint resource pages! These articles show you how to repair scratched paint on your vehicle. To start this series off, we’ll provide some basic information about how to apply touch up paint to your car:

  • The pints, quarts and gallons of basecoat, midcoat, clear and primer are ready to spray and do not require thinning.
  • If you get paint on your skin, remove with paint thinner and wash thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Do not try to use the paint pen on areas larger than a pencil eraser. Larger areas must be sprayed.
  • Paint can easily leak out of the paint pen if you do not use it correctly!
  • Do not try to brush areas larger than a dime. Larger areas must be sprayed.
  • Use an approved automotive paint respirator and WEAR safety goggles and gloves when handling automotive paint to protect your eyes and skin!! Please read the information below for best results.
  • When spraying, always test for paint compatibility. Paint an inconspicuous part of the vehicle, let dry and see if there is any reaction.
  • Do not spray our paint over enamel paint that is less than two years old.
  • Do not spray primer, paint or clearcoat in direct sunlight!
  • First time? Did you know you can completely remove any new paint with automotive lacquer thinner and start over without damaging the original finish?
  • Make sure you use SEM Adhesion Promoter if you are spraying a non-metal surface. Failure to do so will result in the paint peeling off within a few months!
