Question how to fix a scratch on side of door?

Hi,

Wife by accident scratch a very scall veritical scratch on the passanger side door when she she open our 2nd car door. The color of our Armada is smoke. What products and techniques do you all recommend that will help me treat this scratch? If I apply Zaino in the mean time will it protect the scratch?

Also I have a 2200 psi pressure washer and want to know if it is safe removing the dirt and bugs off my Armada with my pressure washer?

Thanks,
aggie00

Get the touch-up paint from Nissan. Get some artist paint brushes and take your time filling it in with a thin coat and re-apply as needed.

I don't suggest using a pressure washer near the scratch. It will blow the paint off.

Thanks Spyda!

Would it be safe to use the pressure washer on the scratch area once I do the touch-up? Also what are your tips on removing the dirt and bugs from your truck? Do you use a pressure washer or do you use some other techniques?

I never used a pressure washer on this truck. I used it on others, but for the Armada, I prefer just wetting it and ashing it well.

I would be careful with it near the scratch even after repaired. Pressure washers tend to find an air pocket and turn it into a paint flap.
