Correction Detail

Designed for vehicles with severe paint defects. Mainly caused by poor hand washing techniques or automated car washes, these leave your vehicle covered in heavy swirl marks and scratches leaving it looking dull with very little depth of colour. Other defects that can be removed with this process are light car park scrapes, water marks and bird dropping stains. The darker the colour of your vehicle, the more noticeable these defects will be. Although lighter colours will not show damage as much as a darker colour, the defects are still there. The vehicle will require a 2/3 stage paint correction (dependant on colour and density of clear coat), the first stage is with a light cutting compound (darker colours will require a heavy cut compound first) to remove visable surface defects this will take all paint surface back to a level where no defects are visable apart from some machining marks. The last stage of machine polishing is to remove any visable machine marks from the previous stage of correction and will ensure maximum gloss finish. The process will remove a very small percentage of the top layer of clear coat on the vehicle in order to reveal a fresh layer of unmarked paint beneath, this level of detail would achieve 85% correction and will clearly bring your vehicles paintwork back to an exceptional condition. Recommended as a yearly or one-off treatment.
