2-Step Polish Description
A minor paint correction or 2-step polish is best decided upon after an in person consultation. A paint correction assessment with a high beam light and full vehicle walk around will be done to note and determine the paint condition and level of correction needed.
A minor paint correction or 2-step polish can eliminate light swirls/scratches, oxidation and dull and hazy paintwork that has been damaged over the years by poor washing techniques, or improper use of bad car care chemicals..
The first step polishing stage is done with a cut compound, polishing/cutting pad and machine to move 80-90% of defects.
The second step is a milder pass to refine the paint finish and give that ultra glossy 'jewel' like finish.
All plastic, chrome and rubber moldings are taped off prior to buffing / polishing.
80 - 90% defect removal.
