This detail is designed to remove major paint defect and significantly enhance the colour and surface gloss of the vehicle. We recommend this service for poorly maintained vehicles of all ages. The work involved will remove swirl marks, light scratches, wash marring and holograms caused by previous inadequate polishing and/or visits to the bodyshop for paintwork. A multi stage machine polishing process removes a minimal amount of the uppermost layer of paint to reveal “as new” paintwork beneath. Paint Depth reading are taken on every panel before machine polishing commences to ensure there are adequate levels to begin with. In essence we can achieve at least 95% correction, although the severity of defects and paint depth levels and previous repairs can limit this.
The higher price charged reflects the amount of work required to achieve this level of finish and can be justified by the increase in the residual value of the vehicle. This is a service we provide to a number of prestige car dealerships as the finished results can add thousands to the sales price of some vehicles.
