Frequently Asked Questions

What is car detailing?
It is the renovation and enhancement of all area's of a car by skillfully deep cleaning, machine polishing and then adding vital protection to all the various surfaces and materials of the inside and outside of the vehicle, to include the rejuvenation of the vehicles paintwork to beyond it's former glory. This often involves the use of specialist techniques and products, each detailed stage of the process makes an incredibly significant improvement to the vehicle's appearance, transforming vehicles beyond their often mediocre factory finish.
What is car paint correction?
A paint correction detail is the painstaking process of removing common paint problems and defects including, acid bird etchings, scratches, swirl marks, previously inflicted machine polishing buffer trails, ghost-like holograms and unsightly orange peel paint finishes. This is carried out by carefully re-levelling the lacquer or single stage painted surface by 1 to 3 microns. Paint Correction is often compared to the effect of a full paint respray at a fraction of the cost, without the inconvenience, lack of originality or associated bodyshop problems.
