Detailing Paintwork

Why Paint Correction is an investment

Detailing Paintwork

Vehicle Detailing

Over time your vehicle paint will gradually deteriorate.

Numerous particles accumulate that can damage the finish of your paintwork.
Contamination such as rain, sun, tree sap, bugs, bird droppings, tar, oxidisation, brake dust, are extremely harmful to the paint finish.

Each time you wash your vehicle, micro marks will appear in your paintwork and over time these marks will gradually get worse and appear as swirls on the surface of paintwork.

These marks diffract light so you are not seeing the true depth of shine in your paintwork.

Vehicle Detailing, Paint correction and Machine Polishing systematically applies varying grades of compound and polish. Removing all contamination from the surface of your vehicle, followed by a wax application leaving your paintwork in "as new condition". The process can also restore dull or faded paintwork back to its original state.

Microscopic layers of wax/sealant then provide a long lasting deep shine finish protecting your paint. Prices start from - £500 + VAT Speak to our service department for a quote

Technology

Preparation

The cleaning process consists of safely and thoroughly removing dust, lose dirt and
grime from the vehicle's exterior / interior. This is a multi-stage process which initially
includes a process known as 'Snow Foam' in conjunction with specifically designed
brushes is used to get to all the hard to reach places such as panel gaps, door shuts
and vents. The car is then washed using a lamb's wool mitt and two bucket system with built in grit guards.

The cleansing process is crucial in removing particles and bonded contaminants such as over-spray, fallout, brake dust and tree sap. Varying strengths of specifically designed clay bars are used. Initially "Aggressive" is used to take off thick contamination, working through to "Mild", ensuring that all of the contaminants are removed.

After the decontamination process, another wash is required to remove any residue
left by the Clay Bar lubricant.

Inspection

Crucial in assessing the condition of the paint before the paintwork is corrected.

Varied lumen lighting is used to inspect the extent and type of paint defects
compromising the vehicles paintwork. Tools such as 3M PPS Sun Gun is used to
replicate sun light highlighting defects, mostly visible under sun light.

Paint measurement gauges are also used in assessing paint originality, whilst analysing the integrity of the paint to assess the correct course of action when correcting paint defects.

Time, precision, and cutting-edge technology are combined to ensure that we identify all defects in the surface of your vehicle.

Paint Correction

A term used to describe the complex removal of paint defects such as Swirl Marks,
Holograms / buffer trails and other imperfections.

The combination of pads, compounds, polishes and glazes, allows us to be selective in choosing the best treatment for your paint; to maintain its integrity, whilst producing an unparalleled shine.

Protection & Sealing

Once the paint has been corrected, we then use some of the best sealants, glazes and waxes specifically suited to each vehicle.

We assess the paint type, colour and how the vehicle is used, in order to apply the
most suitable protection. This is a crucial process in preserving the integrity of our
work, whilst enhancing the depth of shine.

Dressing

Specifically, designed products are used to dress, restore and protect materials such
carbon fibre, plastic, rubber, windows and metal finishes, whilst providing UV
protection. On some severe cases, a precision metal restoration device is used to
enhance heavily defected items, such as exhaust tips badges and many other metal
surfaces.
