How would i go about removing "light scratches" on my car.

Asked by Aug 23, 2013 at 01:16 PM about the 2003 Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've recently brought a Ford Focus Zetec 2003 from a dealer, and I've got to replace the
rear bumper as mine has some marks on it, the over-all car is in good condition,

But i notice the previous women who owned the car left some light scratches around
the key hole and the panel under the door handle, which i assume was due missing the
keyhole...alot. How would i go about getting that fixed?

Do i need to get a "Clear Coat" onto the car, or would i need to get someone to spray
it?
Also how much roughly would it cost to do fix the "Small marks" aka light scratches on
the car?


not sure if it makes much difference, but the car itself is panther black.

For a bodyshop to paint it would be $$$$. Try using a good cleaner wax and see how much you can buff out if the scratches aren't too deep. It's a used car, enjoy it, at least you don't have to wait for that first scratch.
