The Detailed Service

Platinum

You will be amazed at the level of finish we achieve with this detail, no matter what the condition of the car may be to start with - we will get a finish better than when the vehicle was brand new. This is taking paint correction to the next level, removing light to medium scratches (deeper scratches can be removed with wet sanding), severe swirls, oxidisation, bird droppings, water marks and any other imperfections.

The paintwork benefits from paint levelling and a 3-5 stage paint correction process; again depending on the colour and density of clear coat (darker colours with harder paint will take considerably longer). Between 50-100hrs, yes 100hrs of machine polishing. We would achieve 99% correction (total paint thickness is sometimes a restrictive aspect). For those darker colours and harder paints, more aggressive compounds and pads need to be used to create that ultimate finish. Nothing is left untouched with this detail including interior, engine and exterior trim is removed to get to those hard to reach areas (also cleaned whilst off the vehicle). Leather will be cleaned, fed and conditioned. If your car has a soft top that will be cleaned and sealed too. Another advantage to this package is stone chips will be touched in to complete the overall appearance (note - due to make up of pearl and metallic paint, some touch ins may still be visible to the naked eye).

For outstanding protection, the Platinum detail includes our GTechniq optional extra at no additional charge - alhough we will apply a traditional wax or sealant if you prefer. A truly outstanding package for truly outstanding results.
