Paint Correction

Paint correction is the process of restoring and rejuvenating the paintwork of a vehicle, mostly through the elimination of surface imperfections, that dull, oxidize, or haze the surface by reflecting light off in various directions, therefore detracting from a true and proper, clean, sharp, reflection. These imperfections include things like swirl marks & fine scratches, bird dropping etching & acid rain etching, hologramming & buffer trails, and random isolated deep scratches (or RIDS).

What is Stage 1?

Stage 1 Paint Correction is just that, polishing the paint work in one stage or one step with only one type of polish and pad combination. This is suited to paint work in good condition already that have no real visible swirls and only very minor marring. the Stage 1 involves refining the paint work with a finishing polish and a finishing pad only and is generally not abrasive enough to remove swirl marks and scratches. After that, application of a wax or paint sealant to protect the paint work.

(estimated time: 1.5 Hours)

What is Stage 2?

Stage 2 Paint Correction is suited to cars paint that have moderate swirl and light scratches and involves using 2 different polish and pad combinations, the first step is generally a a cutting compound with a cutting pad to remove imperfections such as lighty scratches and swirl marks and other moderate paint defects. Then the finishing polish and finishing pad will be done to refine the paint work even further by removing any marring or holograms left by the previous step. After that, application of a wax or paint sealant to protect the paint work.

(estimated time: 2.5 Hours)

What is Stage 3?

Stage 3 Paint Correction is suited to cars paint that have heavy scratches and swirl marks, and other paint defects. It involves using 3 different polish and pad combinations, and this can also include spot wet sanding for heavier scratches. The first step is a heavy cutting compound with a heavy cutting pad to remove those deeper scratches and swirl marks. The second step is a cutting polish and polishing pad to remove further swirls marks. Then the finishing polish and finishing pad will be done to further refine the paint work to a swirl, marring and hologram-free finish. After that, application of a wax or paint sealant to protect the paint work.

(estimated time: 4 - 7 Hours)
