The Axioma Approach to Keyed Car Repair

Understanding Keyed Car Damage

Keyed car damage can vary greatly, from superficial scratches that barely nick the paint’s surface to deep gouges that expose the metal underneath. Regardless of the severity, it’s crucial to address keyed car damage promptly to prevent further deterioration, such as rust and corrosion. 

For minor scratches, some car owners may consider a DIY approach. This process involves several steps, including sanding, applying touch-up paint, and buffing. However, fixing a keyed car often requires a level of precision and expertise beyond the average DIY project, especially for deeper scratches that risk the paint’s structural integrity.
