PAINT CORRECTION

Keep your vehicle looking its best

Paint Correction or Paint Enhancement is the refinement of your vehicle's painted surfaces to bring out its beauty. In other words, it is the process of removing minor scratches and imperfections found in the vehicles clear coat. This often involves multiple stages of polishing utilizing different grit of polishing and finishing compounds and different polishing pads and towels. This service is a pre-requisite for our Ceramic Coating application and an available add-on to our detailing service.

 

Paint correction can be broken down into multiple stages:

 

Stage 1 Paint Correction

It’s a single-step polishing job using a cutting compound (or the liquid polish) and a pad. The single stage paint correction is intended to remove small marring and swirl marks that are lightly removed.

Stage 2 Paint Correction

When the car’s paint has moderate or medium swirl marks and scratches that are embedded in the clear coat, stage 2 is the next progression. At this point, you’re going to use (2) different polishes and pad combinations. Typically – it starts by using a more abrasive compound first, then stepping down to a finer polish to remove any light scratches left by the first step.

Stage 3 Paint Correction

If you get to this point – it’s a good idea to do some careful research and perhaps defer to a professional. This is a three-step program, where the car’s paint job has heavy swirl marks, marring, or other defects. The first step involves using a heavy cutting compound, with a machine polisher, and polishing pad – to really dig into that paint damage. The second step progressively decreases the grit, and finally, a light polishing compound should smooth out the damage.
