Paint Nick Repair

Anyone have a link to a video, thread, article on step by step repair process for paint nick repair on base coat- clear coat. Have 3 years under my belt on a complete repaint of my 69 so I have a nick here and there.
I do recall a process I was reading about somewhere that detailed the process and included scraping down the clear coat with a razor blade and then several steps of polishing/wet sanding.
I cant understand why these pro detailing guys dont offer a one day class on nick repair. If they charged $100.00-$200.00 to attend the class and could get ten or so students, sounds like it would be worth their time.

I would maybe put tape on the ends of the razor blade during the scraping operation, at least for the first passes, to avoid gouging or removing the surrounding clear too much.

Maybe this should be in Body Shop?

I thought about that before posting. But I figured that nick repair is more of a detailing issue than a body repair issue.

Re: Paint Nick Repair

You can take a hole punch to sandpaper and glue it to the end of a pencil for sanding, or use a tool like this:



I would try the sandpaper first.
