Repairing dents and scratches

I have three teenage children, so our second car is constantly getting scratched and dents. I can't take it in every week to get repaired so I need to have a good relationship with my local auto body repairer. They know me really well, and they give me some little decant pots so I can at least do some small repairs at home to make sure the car body doesn't get damaged while I'm waiting to get into the auto painters. This blog is all about avoiding car damage when there isn't time to get small dents and scratches repaired.

Recycled, second hand and third-party manufactured parts can be used to restore the vehicle to working condition. If you do not wish to incur additional costs beyond the settlement by the insurance company, this is the best option for your smash repairs.
