RE: scratch repair myths..

Posted by Johnny2Bad on October 25, 2010 at 19:46:45:

It really, really depends on the scratch. Some are user-fixable; any competent auto supply store will have touch-up paint in your factory color; if not you will certainly be able to get it from the dealer.

There is such a thing as scratches that need a repaint, but I wouldn't trust the word of a single body shop on that one. Have someone who knows backyard auto repair well have a look at it. You could just ask a guy who has a nice vintage or custom car about it, when your vehicle is around for him to check out.

If you do see a nice car at a mall, or whatever, don't park right beside him. One stall away and he's your buddy.
