Paint Correction

The paint correction process (also known as buffing) brings a vehicle’s finish to its true clarity and beauty. Our multi-step process includes:

Clay baring of your vehicle to remove any contaminants left behind on the paint finish from the initial hand wash.

Checking paint levels to insure that the paint finish is at a safe level to correct.

Compounding. This step in the process removes any heavy defects and scratches in the paint finish.

Polishing. This final step in the process removes any light defects, scratches and marring in the paint finish left behind during compounding.

Paint Correction Options


Paint Enhancement 
Defect Removal

30% defect removal.

We use finer grade polishes with light abrasives to bring flake or pearl back to your paint finish. Defect removal is not the Focus. We also call this a gloss enhancing polish. When you only want your paint to shine and cost is the highest priority—this is the best option.


1-Stage Paint Correction
Defect Removal

40% - 70% defect removal.

This process involves a deep machine polish focusing on removing light to medium scratches. On softer paints, we can remove 50-70% of defects. However, on harder paints only 30-50% can be achieved. This is a great option for late model vehicles. It’s a great bang for your buck while giving you a noticable transformation.


2-Stage Paint Correction Defect Removal

70% -99% defect removal.

This process requires a heavy compound polish to remove light, medium and heavy scratches. After scratches are leveled, a fine polish is followed to refine paint to a glass mirror like finish. 2-Stage corrections are good for poorly maintained vehicles with deeper defects. We reccomend this for darker finished vehicles. This process will leave your vehicle’s paint in better than showroom condition.

Our paint correction process creates that “mirror” look and preps for that “glass” finish. Call us for your free quote.
