Automotive Paint Correction in Sydney

This is the pinnacle of detailing services for your car’s exterior. If you are looking to enhance the gloss of your car's paint or remove unsightly swirls and scratches then this is achievable with our paint correction and enhancement (machine polishing) services. We use different grades of abrasive polishes and pads along with our modern day polishing techniques and equipment to achieve the best finish possible from the packages we offer below.

Due to different finishes in modern day paints, paint correction and enhancement services are priced on an hourly basis and will require an inspection of the vehicles paint condition before being able to provide an approximate quote.

Paints that are soft (Japanese cars) tend to correct easier but they take time to refine, whereas some vehicles which have hard ceramic clear coats (European) will take more time to penetrate the clear coat. Dark or solid coloured paints require more time as more refinement is needed to achieve a hologram free finish than lighter metallic paints.

Below is an approximate guide to how much time is required to carry out each paint correction service based on a small hatch sized vehicle with light coloured paint.


 

Stage 1 Enhancement

Recommended for newer vehicles or if you’re looking to enhance the finish of your car’s paint. This stage can remove or reduce fine swirls and hazing and restore paint to a slick and smooth finish.

  • Pre foam & full exterior wash
  • Paint Clayed (to remove paint contaminants)
  • Trims and rubbers taped up
  • Stage 1 machine polish
  • Alcohol wipe down
  • Windows cleaned
  • Tyres & Trims treated
  • Hand application of wax/sealant (Optional coatings available at additional costs)

Time : 4 -5 hours (approx)
 

Stage 2 Paint Enhancement/Correction

Stage 2 paint correction can remove or reduce light to mild swirls and scratches by 60-80% and improve the paints gloss and clarity. This is the minimum recommended for dark and solid coloured vehicles.

  • Pre-foam & full exterior wash
  • Paint Clayed (to remove paint contaminants)
  • Trims and rubbers taped up
  • Stage 2 machine polish
  • Alcohol wipe down
  • Windows cleaned
  • Tyres & Trims treated

Time : 6 – 12 hours (approx)
 

Full paint correction

Recommended if you are seeking a defect free paint finish and ultimate clarity and reflections. We can remove or reduce as many paint defects as possible whilst still leaving a safe amount of clear coat on the paint to prevent any oxidation or fading further down the track. This is achieved through a 3-5 stage machine polishing process.

  • Pre foam & full exterior wash (2 washes before and after correction)
  • Paint Clayed (to remove paint contaminants)
  • Trims and rubbers taped up
  • 3 – 5 Stage machine polish
  • Alcohol wipe down
  • Windows cleaned
