Scratches in matte finishes can be minimized in appearance through thorough cleaning. For total scratch removal, however, touch-up paint will need to be applied as matte finishes cannot be buffed. Buffing sands down the bumpy texture that produces the diffuse appearance, resulting in a sickly semi-gloss. Thankfully Simon’s can source a variety of touch-up paints from both body shops and OEMs to perfectly match your finish.
