Repairing Chips and Scratches

By Bill Siuru, PhD, PE   

Your vehicle runs great, but the body has many paint chips from rocks and encounters with shopping carts plus a nasty scratch on it. Here are some tips on repairing chips and scratches without having to invest in a repaint.

For best results use touch up paint specifically matched to the paint on your car. An automotive paint stores can mix it up for you. The pre-mixed stuff usually turns out less than satisfactory since paint will fade with age and weather conditions. Thus it will no longer match the fresh paint in the bottle or aerosol can.

Test cleaners, solvents and paint in an inconspicuous location such as on the seam underneath the rocker panels. If you see color on the cloth used to apply the cleaner or solvent to the test area, use another product. Test the touch up paint to see if it matches.

First, step wash and dry the entire vehicle. Paint repair is a learned skill, so practice on a part of the vehicle that is not that visible and save the hood, side panels, rear deck and so forth until you gained the skill. If after cleaning the area you find some rust on exposed metal in a chip use a pencil eraser to remove the rust. Gently probe the edges of the chip with a toothpick to assure old paint is secure and not about to fall off and ruin the repair.

To help assure new paint will adhere, about 24 hours before you start making repairs glue small circles cut from 600 grit sandpaper on the erasers of several new pencils. After dipping this 'tool' into clean water and putting a few water drops on the chip, twirl the pencil gently to rough up the chip area around about a millimeter of the perimeter of the good surrounding paint. This provides a bit of old paint for the new paint to 'grab' onto.

Prepare all chips and scratches in one small area at the same time repeating this procedure for each. Then apply a small amount of alcohol or Prepsol to a cloth and wiping each chip and surrounding area to remove sanding dust, grease and oil. Use additional solvent and new area of the rag for each chip.

If the primer in the chip is still intact even after sanding with the pencil tool, you can skip priming. If not, pour or spray some primer into a clean plastic cup. Dip a toothpick into the primer to coat the first 1-2 mm of the toothpick with a thin layer of primer. If there is a blob on the end, gently scrape it back into the cup and start over. Place the tip of the toothpick against the center of the chip and allow a thin coat of primer to flow via capillary action in to the chip or scratch. Then move onto the next chip or scratch.

After all chips in the area are primed, cover with a cardboard box, taped down with masking tape. This will prevent dust from getting into the wet paint. The size of the box will determine the area that can be repaired at one time. Allow the primer to dry at least two hours.

Apply another thin coat of primer to each repair that needs primer. Use a new cup and toothp...

What Does Your Car Color Say About You?

By Michelle Groh-Gordy   

Looking for that special someone to share your life with? Finding out what they're really like might be as simple as looking in their garage. In the "Color Answer Book," by Leatrice Eiseman, the author asserts that the color of a vehicle can reveal much about the owner's personality. I took a look at my family's, friends' and acquaintances' vehicles, and it gave me pause. Overall, her theories were amazingly accurate.

Eiseman describes the personality of someone who owns a vibrant red car as "sexy, speedy, high-energy and dynamic." Notice the word "speedy." This must be why the "red-cars-get-more-tickets" theory is so prevalent. Unfortunately, the CHP doesn't keep statistics on the colors of cars its officers cite, but I think Eiseman is on to something. You just don't see that many conservative grandmothers from Bakersfield cruising at the speed limit in bright red cars.

If silver is your preferred car color, Eiseman says that you "are elegant, love futuristic looks and are cool." According to Dupont Automotive, the world's leading supplier of color coatings to the automotive industry, silver has superseded white as the most popular car color since 2000. That means that if you are looking for a "cool" significant other, you will have quite a field of potential prospects to choose from.

It appears that someone with a gold car "intelligent, warm, loves comfort and will pay for it" might be suited perfectly to someone with a black car "empowered, not easily manipulated, loves elegance and appreciates the classics." A match made in car heaven.

If you're looking for someone who marches to their own drummer, look for someone who drives a yellow, orange or purple car. Those with "sunshine yellow" cars are said to have a "sunny disposition, and are joyful and young at heart." Drivers of orange cars are "fun-loving, talkative, fickle and trendy." And drivers of deep purple cars are "creative, individualistic and original."

If you prefer a more serious significant other, you might want to check out someone who drives a white car, as they are "fastidious"; a dark blue car, as they are "credible, confident and dependable"; or the driver of a neutral gray vehicle, who is said to be "sober, corporate, practical and pragmatic."

Looking for a "down-to-earth, no-nonsense" type? Set your sights on someone who drives a deep brown vehicle. And the car color of choice for those who have "timeless, basic and simple tastes" is taupe or light brown. However, if you are truly ready to settle down, you might want to look for someone who drives a light- to mid-blue car, as in addition to being "cool," they are "calm, quiet and faithful." Another spousal choice might be the driver of a dark green vehicle, as they are "traditional, trustworthy and well-balanced."

This could start a whole new trend in dating. "What's your car color?" could replace "What's your sign?"

And for those who have already fou...
