Outrageous Collision Repair Myths Debunked - April Fool's Edition

Outrageous Collision Repair Myths Debunked - April Fool's Edition

As auto body repair specialists, our techs here at CARSTAR Robert’s Collision have heard it all about myths and misconceptions about fixing cars after collisions. In the spirit of April Fool's Day, let's take a humorous look at some of the most outrageous collision repair myths and debunk them once and for all.

Myth 1: Paint Scratches Can Be Fixed with Nail Polish

Have a scratch on your car's paint job? Some might suggest reaching for a nail polish bottle as a quick fix. But trust us, your car deserves better than a DIY manicure. Nail polish isn't formulated for automotive paint, and using it can make the problem worse by creating an uneven surface and mismatched color. Leave the touch-ups to professionals with the right tools and materials to restore your car's finish properly.

Myth 2: Toothpaste Can Remove Dents

It might work wonders for your pearly whites, but toothpaste isn't the solution for dent removal. Despite what you may have seen online, rubbing toothpaste on a dent won't magically make it disappear. You're more likely to end up with minty fresh dents than a smooth surface. For dent repair that works, bring your car to a reputable auto body shop where skilled technicians can use specialized techniques to restore your vehicle's body panels to their original condition.

Myth 3: Cola Can Remove Rust

Forget about using soda to remove rust—it's just fizz without the fix. While the acidity of cola might help loosen rust, it's not a long-term solution for preventing corrosion. Plus, you'll be left with a sticky mess that attracts dirt and debris, worsening the problem. When it comes to rust repair, trust the experts who can properly treat and seal affected areas to keep your car looking its best for years.
