Inspection & Quoting

I advise clients to arrange a physical inspection where we can polish out a test spot with options and show you what it will look like at each stage. This allows you to know exactly what the results can be expected and at what price.

There is no cost to an inspection however where I need to write up a quotation so it can be used to claim example; dealer, insurance, third party etc I charge R200 which is deductible if we do the job.

I cannot quote polishing based on photographs.

  • Lighting plays a role in highlighting scratches and swirls.
  • I can’t also judge depth of defects by photographs
  • The hard or softness of paint can only be determined in person.

You can use the prices listed on this page as a guide.

Advanced Detailing

Paint Report

A Paint Report is an optional service where we catalogue defects and measure the paint thickness from the beginning till after the paint has been corrected.

Our gauge measures the complete paint system from the metal to the top clear coat.

Clear coat or te

We use NEXDIAG’s Advanced PTG which is linked to a Smartphone App
Progress is captured as the detail progresses

Wet Sanding

Wet sanding or flatting is a method of removing or improving deep scratches and levelling paint texture, known as orange peel, ( because it resembles the skin texture of an orange) It is an extreme method of levelling or cutting the top portion of your paint system compared to polishing.

It removes the top most part of the paint which on modern cars is a clear coat layer and older paint systems, which is known as single stage, the colour. In fact, pre 90s it was also called colour sanding.

I regular use this method for spot scratches but for a whole car I would prefer it done by a spray painter. The main reason is risk and a secondary reason is that spray painters are more efficient.
