Restore your paints shine by removing the imperfections

Remove The Swirls and Get The Most Gloss and Clarity From Your Paint

Our Level 2 paint correction service is aimed to remove around 80% of the swirls, scratches, and imperfections from your paint. This is where we do an intense cutting and polishing step, called a 2-step correction, to get the most gloss and clarity from your paintwork.

Depending on your condition, whether the vehicle is new or not, some scratches won’t come all the way. It could be the scratches are too deep to remove safely or the clear coat itself is thinning out (we’ll take paint measurements before we start).

This is where we’ll make the proper judgement call on what we can safely remove off your paint. It’s not just about removing as many imperfections. It’s also knowing when enough is enough to keep the integrity of the paint healthy and within good working boundaries.

And yes, for newer vehicles, even just 4 months off the lot, the paint can still require a 2-step correction service. Although you’ve only had the vehicle for a few months, the car has been transported and handled for many months by many people (in many different places).

It’s during this time that the car is moved, washed, transported, washed, stored, etc… It’s no surprise that vehicles, regardless of make and model, leave the showroom with heavy amount of swirls and imperfections.

The Level 2 paint correction is a commitment you’re making to the vehicle. If you’d like to keep the shine on your paint, you have to properly maintain the vehicle after the service is complete. If you don’t properly wash and dry the vehicle, you can easily put all those swirls and scratches back into your paint in just a few washes.

If you’re selling your vehicle and want to prep the paint for potential buyers, our Level 1 polishing or Wash and Wax is also a great option.

Essential Detailing Paint Correction Process

01

Clean Wheels, Tires, & Fenders 

Detail starts with a thorough cleaning of the wheel faces, wheel barrels, tires, and inner fender liner

02

Gentle Foam Hand Wash 

Vehicle gets a thick layer of foam and a gentle hand wash (while we clean the jambs, gas cap, and remove bugs from paint)

03

Chemically Remove Iron Particles 

To ensure a clean surface, we remove iron particles from your paint via a chemical decontamination

04

Clay Bar Treatment 

The next step to a clean surface is a clay bar treatment to remove any remaining embedded dirt and debris (your paint will feel really smooth).

05

Tape Off Sensitive Areas 

To decrease polish build up or staining, we'll tape off and protect any trim/chrome/sensitive areas

06

Step 1: Compound Phase (Correction) 

Safely remove a majority of the swirls and scratches from your paint with a machine polisher, cutting disc, and compound

7

Step 2: Polishing Phase (Polish) 

This will increase shine and clarity by polishing the micro-scratches that are leftover from the compound phase

8

Paint Wipe Down 

To inspect true condition, we'll wipe down the paint to remove any leftover polish residue that can be hiding imperfections

9

Apply Paint Protection 

Based on your choice of protection, we'll apply a wax, sealant, or a durable ceramic coating

10

Dress Tires, Plastic & Trim 

To give the exterior an extra pop, most of the exterior plastic and trim will be dressed to an even black finish like the tires, fenders, and trim (it will not be greasy)

11

Clean Exterior Windows & Mirrors 

We'll complete the detail with streak-free glass cleaning on all exterior surfaces

12

Final Touch Ups 

We'll do a final inspection of all exterior surfaces and touch up any areas that need are attention

This is the most tedious and labor intensive service. Depending on your car, the condition, and the results you’re after, it can take between 8 to 20 hours to complete.

A great add-on to this service is our Full Interior Cleaning . Both your interior and exterior will be dramatically transformed

Do you offer ceramic coatings?
We sure do! We offer a 1, 3, 6, or 9 year ceramic coating for all vehicles (at an additional price). You can also stay with the more traditional wax or sealant at no additional price.
 
How long do the results last?
After the paint is corrected, the next phase is maintenance. It’s just like training your pet to sit on command. You don’t just teach them once and think they’ll know it forever. 

You have to continually train and repeat the commands. It’s the same with paint correction. You have to properly (and routinely) wash and dry your vehicle moving forward to maintain the swirl-free finish of your paint. If not, you’re back to square one.
What tools and products do you use?
A wide arrange of machines, pads, polishes, compounds, cleaners, towels, and lights will be used to work on your car. Every car will be different and will yield different methods and tools.
 
What’s the difference between a wax and paint correction?
A wax does not remove any swirls or scratches from your paint. It only hides the very light swirls and can be completed in a few hours. Paint correction actually removes the swirls in your paint. This is what makes the paint shine like crazy. It also takes a substantial amount of time and energy to complete. Usually one or two full days (depending on size, condition, and desired results).
