Level 1

Minor Paint Correction

Designed for vehicles that don't require full paint correction.  

Light wash marring, webbing and surface scratches can be removed.

A slightly more detailed correction than a basic polish, using a mild abrasive and a foam finishing pad.  Presents a much glossier, sharper, and truer color by searching and correcting defects in the paint under proper lighting.

Level 1

Minor Paint Correction

A 1-step or single stage polish is the next level of paint correction beyond a Basic Polish.  Driven towards bringing back the gloss and shine to the paintwork without breaking the bank.

This process is a slightly more time consuming process searching for defects in the paint and fixing them under proper lighting.  Many light swirl marks and minor scratches can be removed. 

Using a mild abrasive finishing polish via machine to lightly burnish the paintwork giving ultra-slick reflections and gloss.

All plastic, chrome and rubber moldings are taped off prior to buffing / polishing.  

70-80% defect removal.

Starting Retail Price: $600 - $750
