How To Paint Correct A Vehicle (Our Process)

Step 1: Perform a thorough vehicle inspection.

Before we begin, our team will perform not only our complimentary 19-point inspection but also a comprehensive examination of your vehicle's paintwork. This helps us ensure we can safely polish your paint while achieving the specific results you've communicated during your initial consultation.

Step 2: Wash and decontaminate your vehicles paintwork

This step is crucial in the paint correction process. Regardless of regular professional car washing, your vehicle may still have embedded contamination that isn't immediately apparent to the naked eye. These could include concealed rust deposits, residual car wax, dried chemical stains, and various other substances. To eliminate these, our team employs a variety of chemicals and tools, such as bug removers, rust removers, tar removers, and a clay bar, ensuring that the surface is entirely free of contaminates before we move forward.

Step 3: Determine the appropriate compounds and polishes for your vehicle.

With hundreds of paint compounding and polishing detail products available on the market, not every option is going to be suitable for your vehicle. To achieve the ultimate level of refinement, we dedicate time to testing and fine-tuning several combinations to find the perfect match for your vehicle.

Step 4: Polish & Compound Your Vehicle (We get to work doing what we do best!)

With the vehicle inspection complete, paintwork decontaminated, and our polish and compound products select, its time to begin reworking your paint. Our team carefully paint corrects each panel one by one anywhere from 1-3 passes per panel to help you achieve that perfect crystal clear finish.

Step 5: Perform a final inspection

Before we return your vehicle to you, we want to ensure your going to be satisfied with the results. Our team will perform a comprehensive re-inspection of the entire vehicle, top to bottom, to ensure that we have fulfilled your expectations. We aim for your return visits to be based on your satisfaction with our service, rather than any dissatisfaction with the work performed. If for some reason you are ever un satisfied when coming to pick up your vehicle, we will do what it takes to make it right.
