Use this guide to remove scuffs from the paint on your vehicle.

Accidents can happen and sometimes the paint on your vehicle can get scuffed or lightly scratched from another vehicle or object’s paint transferring onto your vehicle. Fixing scuffs will help preserve the resale value of the vehicle by maintaining a presentable look. Additionally, repairing scuffs yourself prevents you from having to take your vehicle into a shop, saving time and expensive repair costs.

Make sure to use a soft microfiber cloth if available to reduce damage to the surrounding paint while removing the scratch. Avoid heavy pressure and force when removing the scratch.

This process helps to inconspicuously remove paint that has been inadvertently transferred to your vehicle by scraping or scuffing another object. It is worth noting that this guide is only for removing paint transfer from your vehicle. If the actual paint of your vehicle is scratched, please refer to this guide:
