Scratches to your classic car are not just unsightly annoyances: they may carry hidden costs too. They will certainly drive down the resale value of your car but can also become breeding grounds for rust which can be much more expensive to repair than the scratch itself.
The cost of treating scratches is actually much less than you might expect thanks to the introduction of Small Medium Area Repair Technology, or SMART for short. Here’s why the SMART money is on fixing those scratches as soon as possible.
SMART Repair is used to repair small areas of minor accident damage on your classic car. These repairs have been developed to offer a cost effective way of repairing damage by focusing on just the affected area alone, meaning that the work involved is much smaller than a traditional bodyshop repair. The real payback for you is a massive reduction in cost.
SMART repair areas can include bumper scuffs, scratched paintwork, cracked bumpers or mirrors. Rather than, for instance, treating the entire panel a SMART repair will just repair the damaged area and ensure that it is undetectable from the existing paint finish on your classic car.
Specially developed paint and clear coats, enable us to repair scratches, scuffs and paints chips and restore paint damage to the original condition without the need of a spray booth.
Requiring a minimum of paints and consumables this provides a cost effective solution whilst not compromising the authenticity or integrity of your lovingly restored car.
With SMART repair even a cracked bumper can be restored rather than replaced which preserves the integrity of your classic car and saves you money too.
For a scratch or a scuff to the bumper we will first determine the colour code of your car rather than rely on the general code printed in a manual or handbook. We will prep the area using a variety of techniques before applying the colour and carefully blending it in.
The result is a great finish and a car restored once more to its former glory at a fraction of the cost you may have expected.
