Review: G3 Scratch Remover
Maintaining the original finish of your car’s paintwork can be challenging, especially with the outside elements not being considerate to your vehicle’s bodywork. This, paired with deteriorating road conditions, your car’s bodywork can easily get scratched and scuffed. But, fixing the damage to restore your car’s original finish is achievable.
With many scratch remover products available, it can sometimes feel like a minefield trying to choose the best one. So, we’ve helped you with a scratch remover review, of the well-established brand Farécla G3.
What is G3 Scratch Remover?
G3 Scratch Remover is manufactured by Farécla, to remove scratches from automotive bodywork. It is available in two forms; a paste and a liquid, allowing you to choose a type to suit you.
What are the Different Types?
Both products aim to remove/reduce the appearance of scratches, using their Engineered Abrasive Technology particles.
G3 Pro Scratch Remover Liquid – Due to the consistency of this, it is easier to spread and so more suitable over larger areas of damage.
G3 Pro Scratch Remover Paste – The thick texture of the paste offers more control. So, it is more suitable for smaller scratches, requiring more precision.
How Does it Work?
For the best results, apply the product with a G3 Pro White Applicator Waffle Pad. Follow the below method, for both forms:
- Use warm soapy water and a clean sponge to prep the surface. Ensure you thoroughly clean the area and rinse off with fresh water.
- Dampen the G3 Pro waffle pad, be careful not to soak the pad and ring out any excess water.
- Apply a small amount of the product to the pad.
- Apply the remover in an up and down, left to right movement. Ensure the product is completely rubbed in.
- You can now use a clean and dry microfiber cloth to wipe away any residue.
If necessary, you can repeat this process again.
Tip: Only apply the product to cool areas. Do not use when your car is hot from driving.
So, is it worth it? The results will differ depending on the depth of the scratches and area affected. In most cases, you will see an improvement. And, from as little as £7.99 for the scratch remover paste, the product is certainly cost-effective. But, it is not a complete fix. No DIY product can give you the same finish as a professional repair.
DIY Kits vs Professional Scratch Removal
While DIY kits, like the G3 Pro, can reduce the appearance of scratches, they cannot always remove them completely. So, a professional scratch repair service is more of a long-term solution.
Our fully trained specialists can restore your car to perfection. At ChipsAway, we provide high-quality SMART repairs. This means we can keep the repair local to the damage, unlike many bodyshops, so we are also normally more cost-effective.
