Dacia Duster Scratch and Dent Repair

Dacia Duster Scratch and Dent Repair in Horsham, West Sussex

The Challenge: Restoring a Burnt Orange Beauty

At Top Marque Repairs, we understand the frustration that comes with accidental car damage. Recently, we had the opportunity to restore a Dacia Duster in a unique burnt orange colour. The vehicle had sustained a scratch and dent on the rear wheel arch after the driver accidentally hit a driveway pillar. This incident took place in Horsham, West Sussex, and the owner was understandably eager to get their car back to its pristine condition.

The Damage: Rear Wheel Arch Scrape

The impact left a noticeable dent and a deep scratch on the rear wheel arch of the Duster. Given the vibrant burnt orange colour of the vehicle, the damage was particularly conspicuous, detracting from the car’s overall aesthetic. Our mission was to ensure that the repair was seamless, restoring the car to its original glory.

The Repair Process: Precision and Expertise

We began the repair process by carefully assessing the extent of the damage. We decided on a methodical approach to ensure that both the dent and scratch were addressed efficiently.

  1. Preparation: The first step involved cleaning the damaged area to remove any debris and ensuring a smooth working surface.
  2. Dent Removal: Using specialised tools, we meticulously worked on the dent, gradually massaging the metal back to its original shape without compromising the paintwork.
  3. Scratch Repair: Once the dent was addressed, we focused on the scratch. This involved sanding down the affected area, applying a primer, and then colour-matching the burnt orange paint to ensure a perfect blend.
  4. Paint Application: After the primer dried, we applied several coats of the burnt orange paint, perfectly colour matched, allowing each layer to dry thoroughly before applying the next.
  5. Finishing Touches: The final step involved polishing the area to ensure it matched the rest of the vehicle’s surface seamlessly.
