- 1. Wet the 3000 grit sandpaper included in the repair kit. Gently sand the damaged spot for a maximum of 15 seconds. Do not attempt a 2nd sanding.
- 2. Remove any water and grinding residues and simply apply a small amount of REPAIR Tube #1 to the scratch.
- 3. Polish the area with REPAIR #1 and the included polishing rag for about 2 minutes applying a lot of pressure. Do this at a right angle to the scratch until all traces have vanished completely.
- 4. Remove any REPAIR #1 residue using a moist rag and apply a small amount of FINISH Tube #2 to the scratch.
- 5. Now polish the area with FINISH #2 and the second enclosed polishing rag for about 2 minutes, applying a lot of pressure. Use circular motions until the area has a glossy appearance.
- Determination of the scratch depth:
"Finger nail test": Run your finger nail alongside the scratch in a vertical direction. If your finger nail does not get stuck and you can hardly feel the scratch, you are dealing with a light surface scratch. If your finger
nail gets stuck and you can clearly feel the scratch, it is deeper and wider. In the latter case the use of a matching touch up pen is recommended. Not suitable for extremely deep scratches that affect the primer.
- Nano paints and ceramic paints:
Please make sure that your vehicle does not have a “scratch resistant“ nano paint job or ceramic clear coat. This would, for instance, be the case on many models made by Mercedes-Benz as of 2005 and later. Mercedes cars with such paint jobs are identified by the letter C after the color
code, e.g. 040C. In many Mercedes models you can find the color code on the model plate located inside of the engine area. If you have any concerns, you should always ask the manufacturer of your vehicle or a contract dealership. If your vehicle has a nano or ceramic paint job, the only product you can use is FINISH #2 and you can only use it to eliminate very minor scratches and traces of paint. Do not use REPAIR #1 on nano or ceramic paints under any circumstances and also refrain from using sandpaper.
- Matte paints:
If you have a vehicle with a matte paint job, you should definitely not use the Scratch Remover. The polishing process would not only remove the scratches, but also the matte surface structure of your paint job, which would ultimately leave behind glossy areas in your paint job.
- Dyed plastic components:
On modern vehicles not all components that look like they have a paint job actually have one. Today, many of these parts (spoilers, etc.) are no longer spray painted, but made from a plastic that has been dyed to match the paint job of the car. Scratches in dyed plastic parts – with a few exceptions – can usually not be removed from the surface without leaving behind marks in the surrounding areas. Consequently, we generally advise car owners not to use the presto Scratch Remover on
automotive components that are not spray painted. If you are not certain, which material a certain part is made of, ask your vehicle manufacturer or contract dealership.
- Application compatibility test:
Before you make attempts to repair scratches, test the presto Scratch Remover in a concealed place (for instance on the inside door panel or inside the trunk fold) to ensure compatibility with your vehicle's paint job.
