It's always useful to have some general knowledge about things that affect your vehicle. One of this things is of course skill of proper car touch up paint use. What was once beautiful paint on your car can be with minor dents and scratches quickly ruined. When that actually happens we use touch up paint which can quickly and effectively repair smaller troubles with car paint, and the best part of it is that you can simply do it yourself.

You might never had this kind of a troubles with your car's paint, but as I said before they can quickly occur so you might want to know this few steps of proper touch up paint use. Before you start you will need to require all needable material for this process. Mostly you will need basic things such as masking paper, masking tape, primer, sandpaper, base coat and clear coat. Of course you will need to choose the paint that exactly matches the current one.

Firstly you might put your vehicle into the shade and then clean it by washing it with a shampoo that is specially formulated for cars. Next thing that follows is of course drying and then mask the area around the damaged spot to avoid spreading or spilling of paint over it. When you do that go and take a high grit sandpaper to sand the damaged part. Don't sand just the area that is imperfect, rather do it one or two inches more all around the repair needing area. Then with a soft cloth dust the area.

When things that are listed above are done, the fun part comes into a repairing plan. Use paint brush and apply the primer over the scratch. Again, let it dry and then apply one more coat of primer. You can do this process up to four times with a gap of about ten minutes between each coat. Next few steps are now crucial. Take the base coat and test it if the buyed one matches to the original one, so that paint will easily blend in. Now softly sand the primed area. Next, take the color and apply it over the primed surface, you can do this up to 3-4 coats as required. Keep a gap of somewhere between twenty and thirty minutes between two coats for drying. You can choose to use a paint can and brush or a spray paint for repainting the damaged area. Finish the procedure by application of clear coat after the base coat dries off.

It's essential to work on this errors in time as they can start rusting and further ruin the look of your vehicle. Car touch up paint is cheap and you can do the repairing process by yourself and not going into a car paint shops.
