This is the page for transforming cars into glass mirrors. This is what exterior detailing should really be but unfortunately by most it is not carried out this way. This is the real differences between auto detailing and paint correction. To detail a car is to purely enhance the overall appearance of the vehicle in question. Paint correction is for one thing alone. To actually restore painted surfaces on a permanent basis. These are the differences.
Primary compounds for detailing purposes usually consist of three bases. A slight cutting agent, a polishing agent and a paint protection agent. It’s what I like to call a mild abrasive polish which cuts and polishes at the same time while also adding some paint protection as well.
The primary purpose is to complete this phase within one pass. Usually though three in one products don’t always cut as deep or as fast as a single pass product. This is the reason why cheap detailers always choose cutting compounds over other compounds, because they just cut fast and deep but also leave a trail of destruction.. Hence why they leave swirl marks and also remove huge amounts of paint.
These are the reasons why they don’t complete the entire process When you have to add more passes, it is no longer really detailing, it becomes complicated and no longer cost effective
Paint correction on the other hand is what is known as the professional level of car detailing. This is an entirely different approach to car detailing. With paint correction, everything is accomplished in stages using single base products, from the cutting compound right through to the finishing compound.
We use Autoglym and Meguiars Hence why the procedure is much longer. Paint correction is everything from car washing to clay barring for removing paint contaminants, to car polishing and to the final stage of car waxing which keeps your car looking like a rolling polished mirror.
The results however are really something which leave you speechless and not wanting to drive your car. I’ve heard the words “THE CAR DIDN’T LOOK LIKE THIS WHEN I BOUGHT IT NEW” quite a few times let me tell you.These are results that last. They are an actual restoration of your surfaces. It is a permanent fix.
How long that fix lasts depends on your care and what steps you take to maintain it. This is why we only use world recognised brands like Autoglym, Meguiars and Toughseal for the best paint protection that money can buy. If by any chance you have a vehicle which does have severely damaged paint surfaces, and you have been informed that your vehicle will need a paint re-spray, please see us first.
Paint correction may be your last resort as car detailing your surfaces may not be sufficient. The paint correction services we carry out have saved quite a few vehicles from re-sprays. If you have any questions on what can be achieved on your vehicle just call me
