Save Money On Touching Up Exterior Defects Yourself

From dents to paint scratches, a car’s exterior can get grungy fast. Here’s how to repair those imperfections without spending too much.

Dents 
The first trick involves a plunger and won’t cost anything at all, as long as you have one handy. Firmly place the plunger over the dent. Then, using the suction power, pull the dent out with it.

Scratches
Scratches are almost unavoidable if you have a car. Most minor ones can be smoothed out by any number of DIY scratch removers, found online or in auto parts stores.

Paint Chips
Paint chips are tricky, and the best way to conceal them is to ensure you have the exact color match to your car’s paint. Dr. Colorchip’s kits (starting at $39) provide all the tools needed to make the body paint look like new without you having to spend a couple hundred dollars at the body shop.

Cloudy Headlights
If you’ve noticed your headlights have turned a milky color, you’re not alone. Cloudy headlights are caused by an oxidization of the protective covering, and the problem isn’t just a cosmetic issue, but also a safety concern. There are a number of products out there designed to clear up your headlights for about $20, like the Crystal View Headlight Restorer. They’ll take the layer of film off the covering while restoring UV protection and sealing them against the elements.
