Paint Correction Detail

Paint Correction Detailing - ATD Detailing, Derby, East Midlands

The Correction detail is the perfect detail for you if you strive for perfection. This detail consists of multiple stages of machine polishing, using cutting compounds to remove up to 90% of defects in the paint work, such as swirling or fading. The correction stage is then followed by a refinement stage to give huge depth and shine in the natural finish of the paintwork on your vehicle. The correction detail will leave your vehicle looking better than when it was in the showroom.
We are frequently asked if 100% is possible, then answer is that it is very rarely possible. This is mainly due to very deep scratches which will remain the body, however with the polishing techniques used, they can be made a lot less visible by rounding the edges of the scratches. Just like the Enhancement detail, this detail can save you them bodyshop costs that you may think your vehicle needs, giving your pride and joy that new lease of life.

As well as all this, we also offer bolt ons, such as Gtechniq ultra durable hydrophobic coatings, interior protection or wheel removal for barrel and arch treatment.
