Our process for deep car scratch repairs
We have an efficient and effective process for deep car scratches that’s carried-out by our expert technicians to make sure your car is completely blemish-free. Here’s how it works:
Layer 1 – Primer – We use modern technology to apply the first layer of paint directly to the metal. We pay close attention to the make and detailing of every car to make sure it gets a bespoke treatment.
Layer 2 – Base Colour Coat – We use our on-site mixing station to match the original paintwork of the car we’re operating on.
Layer 3 – Clear Coat – The final, clear-coated catalysed enamel finish will help protect your car from UV light, which can lead to fading.
Once all three layers are applied, the scratches, dents and marks will be removed, and the car as good as new. All that is required is a little time for the work to dry out and harden.

Scratches, scuffs and scrapes can all be restored and repaired, but exactly how long it takes to repair depends on the level of damage incurred. We have our own on-site mixing stations and the latest technology, so in most cases we’ll repair the damage in just a day.
