Did you just notice a small dent on your precious car? Getting a car is indeed one of the best and most practical gifts to give yourself. You can travel on your own and go anywhere, anytime you want. However, owning a car also means taking responsibilities even if it’s just a small dent.
Unlike other damages that vehicles usually endure, small dents and dings are easier to get rid of. As long as you know the right things to do, your car will be free from further damages. Try to take note of these situations that you may encounter:
Flaked and Scratched Off Paint
If the paint on your car has been chipped and scratched off, you can simply touch up its paint. But before you paint your car, be sure to get rid of the little dents and rust first. After getting rid of these little things, you can put a fine coat on them and make it look like nothing happened.
Crumpled and Pushed in Surface
If a small surface of your car has been pushed in after being crumpled, you can put it back to normal with a rubber plunger. They didn’t call a rubber plunger the “plumber’s helper” for nothing since you can also use it to put your cars pushed in surface back into place. Moisten the rubber edge and place it over the small dent. Use it to suction the dent with a little pressure until it pops back into place. Take note that this will only work on small dents, metals and aluminum—not on plastics.
Slight Dents on its Steel Part
You can hammer them by setting a flat piece of metal on the outer side of your car and pound on it from its underside while wrapped up in a rag to protect the surface. Start from the shallow parts carefully until you reach the deeper parts and don’t overwork the metal.
Small Dings on Chipped Surfaces
This is the easiest thing to handle since you can just fill them with putty glaze using a putty knife. Follow the given direction on its package.
