Keeping your car’s paint job scratch-free can be hard, especially in crowded Dubai. Scratches aren’t just caused by car accidents or other careless contact with objects; they can come about when you drive too close to thorny foliage, when your car’s wheels churn up loose stone chips on the street or even on gravel driveways. Even carelessly done auto-detailing work by an inexperienced worker or carwash can result in scratches. A worker who polishes a surface before he thoroughly cleans all grit off would be an example. It’s inevitable that there should be a scratch or two at some point. When it happens, it can be more than an aesthetic problem; it if it goes deep enough, it can actually cause rust and corrosion. Calling up Crystal Shine Auto Detailing, Dubai, can be one of the smartest moves that you can make as owner of your car.
Here’s why it’s never a good idea to attempt to touch it up yourself
With many stores supplying the DIY auto detailer with touch-up paint and scratch removal products, it can be tempting to have a go. In some cases where the touch-up or buffing requirement is simple enough, such an attempt could succeed. In more demanding kinds of scratches, however, doing your own work is certain to make things worse than they are.
There’s sandpaper: It could happen, for instance, if you caused incidental damage to surrounding paintwork working with sandpaper.
You probably won’t get the exact right color: Car manufacturers have several variants of the same color even in a single model year. Getting hold of the right one can be hard.
You’ll probably fall short of patience: Factory paint jobs are clearcoat catalyzed — they are many, many layers of paint hardened with heat and chemicals. Without the right training, equipment and patience, it takes a very long time to get there. In general, one coat a day is all you can do. And you can’t actually take your car out fear of getting dust on it.
You probably don’t have the right environment: For touched-up paint to match its surroundings, it has to take really well, which it cannot do in an environment that is humid or filled with dust. If it’s summer in Dubai, you might as well forget it.
It’s a basic rule of thumb of the DIY world — if it’s an aesthetic effect that you’re trying to achieve, and it’s in a place where it counts, you mustn’t do it. You simply won’t get the effect that you have in mind., Trust the job to Crystal Shine Auto Detailing, Dubai.
