Paint Correction

What is paint correction? Paint correction is the removal of scratches, oxidation, marring, acid etching, fading, and other defects from the paint with mechanical leveling. It has the BIGGEST impact on the final result of the detail. If left alone, the defects will still show through wax or coatings and distort the reflection of light, dulling the shine.  See the interactive 50/50 before/after below for a visual demonstration.

Stage 1 – Paint Enhancement Detail

Designed for cars with light to moderate defects such as light wash marring, micro-marring, swirls, and machine holograms from previous detailers.  In addition to everything included in the HD Exterior Treatment, a 1-2 step paint correction is carried out to remove 50-80% of the paint defects, and reduce any remaining defects.  The gloss, wetness, and reflection of the car will be enhanced.  Consultation and recommendations for paint correction are done free of charge.  Prices vary based on the size of the vehicle and severity of defects present in the paint.
