Paint Correction

Paint Correction & Polishing

Paint Correction

Paint correction is the careful process of permanently removing below surface imperfections such as Swirl Marks, Paint Blemishes, Bird Dropping Stains and more from a vehicle's finish. 


The Paint Correction Process will restore the vehicle's true paint color, depth, and clarity, and creates a mirror finish shine in most cases better than factory new. Pricing Starts @ $500+

Step #1 - "Wash & Claybar"

 

After fully washing your vehicle and prior to the Correcting (Cutting & Polishing) process, a vehicle needs to start with a completely clean surface. Surface contamination is difficult to clean or polish. An auto detailing clay bar is an important detailing tool that is extremely effective and removes common contaminants such as paint overspray, tree sap, road grime and ,rail dust from paint on a vehicle that washing won't!


As a first step in paint correction, a clay bar will remove the contamination and leave the vehicle’s painted surface smooth and clean, ready to further the correcting process.

Step #2 - "Resurface"

 Removing scratches, swirls, and paint imperfections requires the slow removal of microscopic layers of clear coat to level out the surface. Compounding agents (or leveling agents) are specifically formulated liquids that, when added to the rotating pad of a High-Speed Buffer or "DA" polishing machine, act as extremely fine grit sandpaper to slowly shave down the clear coat surface safely without damaging & removes all imperfections! 

Step #3 - "Polishing"

 Once the leveling agents have done most of the heavy lifting, a polish is then used to remove any final haze or marks left behind from leveling, and adds to the depth and clarity of the painted surface revealing a glossy, highly polished finish. 

Step #4 "Protection"

 Once the painted surface is perfected, it is now ready for a protective layer of wax, sealant, or Ceramic coating to protect the final outcome of the correction process.

Let's Discuss

 Protection comes in the form of Waxes, Paint Sealants & Ceramic Coatings. Waxes & Sealants are applied in the same way, but offer different types of protection. Both will protect the painted surface from acid rain, fallout, bird droppings and tree sap. A paint sealant is a synthetic polymer that will provide a high gloss finish yet will last much longer than a wax – up to a year in some cases. Ceramic Coating on the other hand is more of a permanent solution and is much more tedious when it comes to applying and Eliminates the need to wax or seal your vehicle's paint altogether!  See which protection is best for you and decide!
