It's only a little scratch !!

It won't matter it's only a little scrape.

With the onset of the more severe weather that's normally associated with the this time of year it makes sense to address any minor car bodywork damage however insignificant it may seem. Very often we can overlook these small defects until one day you notice that that little chip or scratch is showing signs of corrosion. If left it can be very difficult to get rid of as even if a repair is completed at a later date there can be no guarantee that it will not return. Salt and road traffic film can ingrain themselves and can be the start of a re-occuring problem !!

The simple message is doing nothing is not an option. As a minimum you can "touch in" any chips or deep scratches with a paint kit widely available from various outlets. Even if the results are far from perfect it will seal the area against the elements and more importantly seal the metal work, thereby halting the onset of any corrosion issues. Because it is very difficult to get a perfect result by just "touching in" the chips I tend to do these free of charge if I'm completing other more significant damage such as a large paint scratch or bumper repair. There is always some excess paint left over so it makes sense to complete this simple repair at the same time.
