The positive impact the internet has made to my business.

How I interact with my customersI was thinking the other day how the internet and the social platforms available have changed the way I find and interact with my customers these days.

Is it easy to repair a car paint scratch ?

The simple answer is Yes, if the paint scratch is not too deep and hasn't penetrated the clearcoat. How do I know ?.. that is the most common response I get to that statement.You can do a simple check to gauge how deep the paint scratch is by  running your finger over the scratch and seeing if your fingernail catches as it crosses the damage area.If it does it will be difficult to completely remove the scratch without rubbing the paintwork down and re-spraying the damaged area.
