Paint Correction

Paint Correction is the removal of scratches and swirls as well as to create reflection, wetness and gloss in your paint.

Each of my packages has been designed to meet varied expectations and budgets that clients may have. I’m happy to customize any of these packages to suit your needs!

The key to results in detailing is the time spent on your car. More time equals better detail.

Correction for each person’s perspective is also different. some people want to be able to see no defects by looking at the point with their eyes 5 cm away from the paint while others will stand a meter or more from their car when they look at it.

If you arent certain of which to choose, I would recommend that we inspect your vehicle’s paintwork and we polish out a test spot so you can see for yourself what will meet your needs & expectation.

PS: Unfortunately I cannot judge from photos as it lacks information like “depth” etc

From Fiats to Ferrari’s we have the experience!
