PAINT CORRECTION

Lost your shine?

REMEMBER WHAT YOUR PAINT LOOKED LIKE THE DAY YOU FIRST SAW IT?? DID YOU KNOW IT’S NOT TOO LATE? YOU LOVE YOUR CARS AND TRUCKS, AND YOU KNOW THEY CAN LOOK BETTER. EVERYONE’S SCHEDULES GET BUSY, AND ALL OF US FIND IT HARD TO MAINTAIN OUR OWN VEHICLES AS OFTEN AS WE KNOW WE SHOULD.

LUCKILY, TECHNOLOGIES, UNDERSTANDING, TOOLING AND PRODUCTS HAVE ALL ADVANCED TO A POINT THAT WE ARE ABLE TO SAFELY, AND EFFECTIVELY, REMOVE AND RECONDITION A WIDE VARIETY OF FINISHES. OFTEN TO NEAR FACTORY OR EVEN BEYOND.

PAINT CORRECTION PROCESS

RESPECT FOR THE PROCESS 

A VEHICLE INSPECTION PERFORMED AT TIME OF SERVICE, AND A TEST SPOT, ARE NECESSARY TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATE COURSE OF ACTION. THIS ALLOWS US TO DETERMINE THE SPECIFIC COMBINATION OF VARIABLES WE WILL ADJUST TO GET PEAK PERFORMANCE AND FINISH-ABILITY. ADJUSTING VARIABLES LIKE PADS (COURSE TO FINE), PAD MATERIAL CHOICES (WOOL, MICROFIBER, FOAM), BUFFING LIQUIDS (COURSE TO FINE), MACHINE SPEED, ARM SPEED, WETTING AGENTS, AND PROPER CLEAN OUT METHODS, WE ARE ABLE TO BREATHE LIFE BACK INTO YOUR PAINT. WORKING CLEAN IS PARAMOUNT. WHEN CORRECTING, WE BLOW OUT PADS ON EVERY SECTION PASS. THIS ENSURES THE CLEANEST AND MOST UNIFORM FINISH POSSIBLE.

MANUFACTURERS USE DIFFERENT PAINT AND PAINT SYSTEMS. FOR THAT REASON, WE ALWAYS PERFORM A TEST SPOT STARTING WITH THE LEAST AGGRESSIVE METHOD POSSIBLE. WE FINE TUNE THE APPROACH, BEFORE DIALING IN THE OPTIMAL COMBINATION TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED RESULTS. THIS IS 100% NECESSARY TO PROFESSIONALLY DETERMINE THE LEVEL OF CORRECTION NECESSARY ON THE INDIVIDUAL VEHICLE. BY TESTING THIS WAY, WE CAN DETERMINE THE PROPER LEVEL OF CORRECTION REQUIRED, WITHOUT REMOVING ANY MORE PAINT THAN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED RESULTS.


GOALS

REMEMBER, VEHICLE PRESERVATION IS THE GOAL. REMOVING MORE PAINT THAN NECESSARY IS NOT DOING YOU ANY FAVORS DOWN THE ROAD. THIS PROCESS ALSO ALLOWS US TO EFFECTIVELY MEASURE AND MONITOR THE PAINT DEPTH. AS WELL AS, MONITOR THE PRECISE AMOUNT OF MATERIAL BEING REMOVED IN THE PROCESS. ENSURING THE INTEGRITY OF THE PAINT SYSTEM AS A WHOLE.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL, IS TO REMOVE AS LITTLE PAINT AS POSSIBLE, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, ACHIEVE THE DESIRED REULTS.

PAINT CORRECTION, ALSO KNOWN AS COMPOUNDING, POLISHING, “CUT AND BUFF”, SWIRL/SCRATCH REMOVAL, ETC, IS A PROCESS CONSISTING OF REFINISHING FLAWED, DAMAGED, AND/OR OXIDIZED PAINT. UTILIZING INTELLIGENT COMBINATIONS OF MACHINES, PADS, AND BUFFING LIQUIDS OF DIFFERENT ABRASION LEVELS, WE ARE ABLE TO SAFELY RECONDITION PAINT AND OTHER EXTERIOR SURFACES PROPERLY THE FIRST TIME.

THE ACT OF PHYSICALLY PUTTING A POLISHER TO THE PAINT IS NOT ENOUGH.  IT TAKES A CAREFUL AND CONSTANT CONSIDERATION OF INHERENT PAINT PROPERTIES AND POTENTIAL FAILURE POINTS. BEING MINDFUL OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES, TOOLING, PAD AND BUFFING LIQUID COMBINATIONS, SPECIFIC VEHICLE PRECAUTIONS, AND EVEN THE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OF THE PAINT ITSELF. NOT ALL PAINT IS CREATED EQUAL. SOME MANUFACTURERS PAINT IS HARDER AND TAKES LONGER TO CORRECT, WHILE SOME IS SOFTER AND CAN REQUIRE FURTHER STEPS TO FINISH OUT PROPERLY. SOME SPOTS SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COST WITH A MACHINE DUE TO LACK OF PAINT TO WORK WITH. EACH CAN HAVE THEIR CHALLENGES. WE CAN HELP SIMPLIFY IT.


OTHER INFORMATION
CERTAIN LEVELS OF PAINT CORRECTION SERVICES ARE ALREADY INCLUDED IN OUR CERAMIC COATING PROTECTION PACKAGES.

*** SOMETIMES, MORE STEPS CAN BE NECESSARY DEPENDING ON PAINT CONDITION AND THE LEVEL OF FINISH YOU’RE SEEKING. WE MAKE SURE TO BE AS UP FRONT AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

IT IS DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED TO FOLLOW UP ANY FORM OF PAINT CORRECTION WITH A QUALITY CERAMIC COATING TO PRESERVE AND EXTEND THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE VEHICLE’S PAINT SYSTEM. SEE CERAMIC COATING PROTECTION PACKAGES.

PLEASE REACH OUT WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THE PROCESS, OR WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT. WE LOVE WHAT WE DO, AND WE EQUALLY APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE YOU. CAREFUL CONSIDERATION GOES INTO ANALYZING EACH VEHICLE, CASE BY CASE. THIS WAY, WE ENSURE THE MOST ACCURATE AND PROFESSIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS POSSIBLE.
