How to Remove Paint Scratches

Getting a scratch on your car, whether on the road or removing items from your trunk, flat out sucks. If the scratch is noticeable, it’s just that much worse. Even if it isn’t too noticeable, once you see it, you can never forget about it. While you can come into our repair shop for major scratches, you can also fix little ones yourself. Here’s how to remove paint scratches.

Before you get started, you’ll want to take a good look at the scratches you’d like to fix. If you can catch your fingernail on them, they be too deep for an at-home job. Additionally, the scratches will be easier to fix the lighter they are. Attempting to fix deep scratches could result in a worse-looking paint job.

Once you’ve identified the scratches you think you can fix, clean them then grab a soft cloth and dampen it. Next, head to the bathroom and pick up your toothpaste. Add a few dabs of toothpaste to the cloth then rub it onto the scratch in a circular motion.

After a few rotations lift the cloth. If the scratch is gone, you’re done! If not, keep going.

2017 Ford GT Undergoing Road Tests

Spotting prototypes is like bird watching to auto enthusiasts, especially those with a need for speed. The latest sighting puts a 2017 Ford GT undergoing road tests for the first time. Considering spotting any form of a Ford GT, old or new, is a rarity, it’s no surprise the latest Ford GT spotting made headlines.

While the spotting doesn’t tell us much, it looks like the GT rides just as low as it looks in the pictures Ford has previously released. On top of that, it’s a little easier to judge just how long, wide, and high the car is based on other vehicles around it.

Ford began taking applications – yes, applications – from potential buyers not long ago in an effort to weed out those who are looking to resell the car. Questions included how active the applicant is on social media, how many Fords they’ve owned, and how often they’d drive the 2017 Ford GT.

Even if someone looking to make a profit does have their application accepted, Ford is also including a legal document that states the owner can’t sell the car for a specific amount of time.

The 2017 Ford GT will feature a gorilla glass windshield, a first in the industry. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine that bursts onto the road with over 600 hp thanks to its carbon fiber construction.
