What is Paint Correction?

Paint Correction is the process of removing swirls/scratches, holograms, oxidation, and wash induced marring. It can be done in 1-Step to 3+ Steps and can take anywhere from 8 hours to 30+ hours depending on the size of the vehicle, the intricacy of the panels, level of severity and level of correction desired

 

Paint Correction requires a high level of expertise and knowledge. As every vehicle paint is different, some are soft while others are hard, some are thin while others are very thick. We focus on your vehicles paint and come up with a process that is specifically tailored to your vehicle. We use the highest quality rotary buffers and dual action polishers in the market to polish your paint to absolute perfection! We always use Paint Thickness Gauges to measure your vehicles paint prior to correction to ensure the level meets our requirements, but we also use it to limit the amount of clear coat removed during the correction process. If Paint Thickness Gauges are not used during this process the clear coat can be brought to dangerously low levels and be prone to failure in the coming years.

 

In addition to the paint correction services, we highly recommend an application of a Paint Protection Coating to seal in the finish and protect it for years to come. Not to mention studies have shown properly corrected vehicles can be worth up to 25% more during resale!

Two-Stage Correction

A two stage machine polish is performed to eliminate light swirls/scratches, oxidation and dull/hazy paintwork that has been damaged over the years by subpar washing techniques, automatic car washes, or lack of regular maintenance. This level of service is designed to remove ~85% of the surface defects. The result is a finish that is crisp and full of clarity under direct lighting conditions. This is the highest level of correction that we prefer to perform on a vehicle that will be a “daily-driver” as going for a Multi Stage Correction on a vehicle that is driven daily is not recommended. This is our most popular correction service.

Our Multi-Stage Correction is designed to remove all traces of swirls, RID’s (Random Isolated Deep Scratches), sanding marks, buffer trails, and chemical/water/bird poo etching. However complete removal is not always possible if the amount of clear coat does not allow for it, so areas where complete removal is not possible (such as scratches that require paint in order to fix) improvements will be made through various polishing techniques. This level of service is designed to remove ~95% of the surface defects. This service is most suited for show cars, garage kept vehicles, exotics, or weekend toys. Multiple days will be spent refining the vehicles finish, hours spent on correction can range anywhere from 25-45 hours on a car. Highly recommended to have our top level ceramic coating options from CarPro CQuartz applied to protect the finish for many years.
