Correction Detail

The Correction Detail Package starts where the Enhancement Detail finishes. The main difference is that this service includes multiple stages of machine polishing. By using a combination of pads, compounds and polsihes tailored to your specific paintwork condition, we are able to remove most surface defects such as oxidisation/swirls/holograms as well as light scratches, etched-in stains and other unsightly blemishes. The final result leaves a near-perfect surface, meaning extreme depth of colour and the highest levels of gloss. This 'higher tier' of service is for customers who's vehicle may have poorer paint to start with and where the end result needs to be near concourse ready.
