Instruction for the elimination of defects in paintwork
First we need to apply the putty on the body. If the scratch on the machine is negligible, use a two-component polyester material. After the putty is applied to the surface of the body, carefully level it. While it dries (about 10-15 minutes), take a rubber spatula and gently level the surface. Excess shpaklevku must be removed from the surface. To make the surplus as small as possible, apply the material extremely carefully, in a thin layer.
After the putty dries, a scratch on thethe machine will no longer be visible. But this is not the end of our work. Next, we need to sand the surface. This is done so that the body has no prominent irregularities and roughness. How to scratch the car? To achieve the desired result, we use a coarse-grained sandpaper. Then go to fine-grained.

For this you need to know the exact number of paint. It is indicated in the special brochure supplied by the car manufacturer. Spray the aerosol at a distance of 20-30 centimeters from the body, so as not to cause streaks and stains. We apply the paint in three layers with a periodicity of 7-10 minutes. After that, the scratch on the machine will be completely eliminated. After the production of these works, it is desirable to treat the body of the machine with varnish and thoroughly polish it.
