Whether you were sideswiped or the victim of a stray shopping cart, take care of your minor paint scratches to restore your vehicle to top aesthetic shape. While deeper scratches might warrant a trip to the auto paint shop, you can typically handle minor scratches on your own. Watch this video on the process of removing minor auto paint scratches.

The two key elements you will need to remove minor auto paint scratches are polishing compound and a rag. Use your rag to apply the compound to the scratch, but be careful to avoid your trim. Then rub a wet cloth over the area and finish with a coat of wax.
