The Detailed Service

Silver

Our Silver correction detail is designed for vehicles with 'medium' level paint defects. Poor hand washing techniques and automated car washes will leave your car covered in swirl marks and scratches, which result in a dull looking finish and reduced depth of colour. Other defects that can be removed with this process are light car park scrapes, water marks, 'buffer lines / holograms' left by body shops or less experienced detailers, and bird dropping stains. The darker the colour of your vehicle, the more noticeable these defects will be (lighter colours will not show damage as much as a darker colour).

The Silver correction process consists of two stages: firstly, a rough/aggressive abrasive machine polishing stage removes a very fine layer of the clearcoat, and the surface defects along with it. However, this stage leaves its own very fine, hazy marring behind. Second, we use a much more gentle machine polishing process to carry out a refining stage - which brings the car up to the exceptional gloss you'd been hoping for.

This two-stage process would usually take between 20 and 30 hours of machine polishing alone, and we aim to achieve around 85% defect correction on a swirl-mark covered car. Recommended as a yearly or one-off treatment.
