How big is the area with the scratches?
When you go over it with the fine nail, are the scratches clearly noticeable?
And on which part are the scratches?
Ok, thank you. I'm writing a answer now, it may take a few minutes.
The scratches look as if someone has rubbed over the dirty lacquer (dust is enough).
As you can see in the picture, the scratches seem to be through the clear coat and even through the paint in places. A normal repair brush is no longer sufficient here. The lacquer consists of 4 layers
- Primer- Paint- Metallic parts- Clear lacquer
The paint brush cannot fill up these layers, furthermore the metallic flakes are laid differently and the repaired area is always visible.
For an invisible repair, a paint build-up and a complete painting of the part must be done.
The area is far too large to repair with a brush.
In the last picture, however, it looks as if one could try to remove the scratches with a polishing machine and abrasive polish. I think that might leave some individual scratches that could be dabbed out.
But if polishing doesn't work, you'll have to paint to get a decent result.
I'm glad if i could assist with your problem today. All the best for the future and please let me know here if you have any further questions on this topic.
Yes, the estimate is a good offer.
The scratches are typical when someone tries to remove dirt with a paper tissue and rubs the paint. The handkerchiefs, together with dust particles, make these scratches.
no, I don't think so, if someone had tried to cover it up it wouldn't have increased by cleaning.
But cleaning washes the dirt out of the fine grooves, and the scratch then appears larger.
As already said, if the scratch had been covered with paint, it would not wash off with water. In order to remove the scratch, a paint job must be carried out. The £140 is a good deal.
