Paint Polishing & Restoration
Paint correction is at the core of what I do and is the service that yields the most dramatic difference in your car’s appearance.
Paint correction is the meticulous and time-consuming process of removing swirl marks, scratches, UV fading, marring, water etching and other defects to restore your paint’s shine and gloss and make your car or truck look new again.
Every vehicle is in a different condition, and every client has a different budget and desired outcome.
Each paint correction detail starts with an in-depth thorough exterior cleaning. This process includes:
– An in-depth foam pre-soak and 3 bucket decontamination wash of the vehicle removing bugs, tar, sap and all other loose dirt
– Thorough claybar and chemical fallout removal treatment resulting in a squeaky clean and smooth paint surface
– Full wheel, tire and wheel well cleaning and detailing
– Exhaust tips cleaned and polished to remove carbon buildup and restore shine
– Door jambs degreased and cleaned
**Once this thorough cleaning is complete, then the REAL detailing starts. You get to choose the level of paint polishing and protection that is necessary and desired for your vehicle.

Includes an extensive single-step correction process that removes many surface defects like swirl marks, oxidation, and paint transfer while greatly improving gloss, clarity and depth in the paint.

STAGE 2/CORRECTION – Coupes $500 | Sedans $600 | Trucks/SUV’s $700 | Oversized $800
My most popular paint correction package! This package includes a much more thorough 2-step correction for a more drastic improvement. Paint is compounded to remove scratches, hazing, etching and other paint defects. Paint is then polished to refine the finish and brings out jaw-dropping gloss, clarity and depth. In most cases, this will provide a near-perfect finish.
Recommended for: Neglected vehicles needing serious defect removal (scratches, water spots, etching) , darker colored cars, just purchased used cars, vehicles being prepared for Ceramic Coating protection application.
STAGE 3/RESTORATION – IN PERSON CONSULTATION AND INSPECTION REQUIRED
This is a multi-day restoration package that will get the paint to as perfect condition as safely possible. Multiple stages of wet-sanding, compounding and polishing are performed to remove heavy defects, level the paint and provide a truly intense restoration to a deeply damaged finish.
Recommended for: For those wanting the best of the best, very poorly maintained or neglected vehicles where deeply marred and dull paint requires deeper paint restoration, vehicles being prepared for Ceramic Coating protection application.
Once your vehicle is properly cleaned and polished, it is important to protect and preserve the surfaces.
Each paint correction detail includes the application of GTechiq C2V3 sealant to the painted surfaces and trim of the vehicle for up to 6 months of protection. Ask about upgrading this sealant to a longer lasting, super durable GTechniq Ceramic Coating.
