OUR PAINT CORRECTION PROCESS

Our paint correction process is segmented into several phases, which vary depending on the severity of the damage.

Stage 1

We use a heavy cutting pad and compound to effectively minimize scratches, scuffs, and swirls, paving the way for a superior finish.

Stage 2

We switch to a milder pad and a finer polish mixture. Generally, we start with a coarser compound before moving on to a gentler one to eliminate any remaining scratches from the previous stage, thereby enhancing the overall look of the paint.

Stage 3

After careful preparation, we use a special pad and polish to give your vehicle a flawless, sparkling appearance.
