Prepare a slight layer of hardener beforehand. When this is dried completely (it will take a couple of hours minimum), Apply the previously prepared solution by distributing it with a precision brush and let it dry for 20 minutes.

How to keep deep scratch repair intact?
Once they have been repaired, the scratches must be properly treated because they do not fend off. When you wash your car, remember to pass this area more delicately, avoiding the use of the detergent if possible, especially if you have been repaired for a while. Polishing does not cause any drawbacks. Remember to periodically dust the damaged area to prevent dust penetrating the interstitial area and cause unhealthy bulges, if not impossible, to be removed later. If, on the other hand, air bubbles are formed, take the sandpaper and sand the area slightly. Obviously the repair paint will almost completely get rid of the bodywork, but unfortunately if you do not turn to a body builder, this is the main disadvantage. That is why it is good to keep the varnish available to make this type of retouching whenever required.
