Used Car Paint

Car paint for used cars

A prerequisite of a used car is the fact that it’s likely to be a bit banged up when it comes to the paintwork. This happens – over time, car paint naturally chips and suffers from some bumps and scratches. Used car paint will show this damage more clearly, as it might have been a little bit neglected before someone (you!) decided to show it some appreciation.

To add to this, older car models were painted with an Acrylic Enamel or Lacquer type of paint, which is notoriously dull and prone to chipping – no wonder that the years have taken their toll on your poor used car!

Whether you’ve got your used car for the purpose of using it daily, or whether you’re just interested in trying to restore an older car to its former glory, one of the main things you will have to focus on will be the paintwork. It’s the most obvious part of any car, and damage here will really give away the fact that it’s far from a new model!

There will be some used cars that might need an entirely new respray; their paintwork damage has gone too far and is past the point of no return. In this case, there’s not a lot of point trying to touch up each marking individually – you’ll definitely be wasting your time!

However, if your used car paint has managed to get to this point relatively unscathed, with only minor paintwork damage to its name (such as road rash or stone paint chips) you can take care of it yourself – you just need the right tools.
