Should I paint it?
Ok, I have a carbon blue gt. My car has these lines, not really scratches, that it got from my brother taking it to the automatic car wash thumbsdown. I was wondering do I have to paint the whole car all over again to remove them or can i just put like a clearcoat or something like that on it. Please help!

First you can try a paint scratch remover, like a compound or a clay bar.

If that doesn't work, you could get a bodyshop to just fix the areas of paint that are damaged. No need to get the whole car repainted.

But, if you want to get the car repainted, go for a custom color thumbsup

You could also try to wax it w/ color matched wax after you've used the scratch remover.


I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

The reason I can't just fix the part thats damaged is because the whole car has lines or scratches from that damn brush or whatever it's called.

If they are that bad the car wash is liable for the damage, But I'm thinkin that there just surface scratches so all you need is a good buff.

Well the cheapest way would be to take a whole afternoon and hand wash your car, go over the whole thing w/ a scratch remover and then go ever it w/ a colored wax.
If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that you'll have no other choice but, to repaint the car.

i went to wash my car the other day and the same thing happened to my carbon blue. the top of the driver's side door got a few scratches on it and i'm angry.

i'm going to try a compound bar and then clearcoat it like hell if i can.
