It involves measuring the paintwork of a vehicle with a Digital Paint Thickness Gauge in numerous locations across each individual panel to determine how much paint remains on the car’s exterior. Then, the paintwork is clay-barred to remove embedded contaminations and imperfections, machine-polished down to the source of the scratch or blemish to permanently remove it from the paintwork.
STAGE 1 PAINT CORRECTION
PRICES - CARS: £250.00 | 4x4/MPV: £300.00
Stage 1 paint correction is just that, polishing the paint in a single stage with only one type of polish and pad combination.
This is suited to paintwork in good condition already that has no real visible swirls and only very minor marring.
The paintwork is then refined using only a finishing polish and pad which is generally not abrasive enough to remove swirl marks and scratches. It is then followed by a wax and paint sealant.
STAGE 2 PAINT CORRECTION
PRICE - CARS: £400.00 | 4x4 MPV: £500.00
Stage 2 Paint Correction is suited to cars that have moderate swirl marks and light scratches and involves using 2 different polish and pad combinations; the first step is generally a cutting (abrasive) polish, to remove imperfections such as swirl marks, light scratches, and other moderate paint defects.
This is followed by a finishing polish and finishing pad to refine the paintwork even further by removing any marring or holograms left by the previous step, it is then followed by a wax or paint sealant to protect the paintwork.
STAGE 3 PAINT CORRECTION
PRICE - CARS: £500.00 | 4x4/MPV: £600.00
