Paint Correction

Paint Correction in Brisbane & Gold Coast

Paint correction is a term used to describe the permanent removal of imperfections in the paintwork of your vehicle such as swirl marks, fine scratches, marring, spiderwebbing, buffer trails, animal droppings, water marks and the list goes on.

Knowing how to tackle each defect accordingly, using the least aggressive method to do so to preserve your car’s clear coat is very important and comes with experience and knowledge. Paint correction is a true correction of the paint (not a filler) which can take anywhere from 2 – 15 hours and upwards depending on the level of correction required.

At Superior Detail Solutions, we take pride in providing the best possible results, with each package receiving the best possible correction to improve gloss and achieve superior clarity of your paint work. “Cut n Polish” is a term you will generally find being used by car wash businesses and detailers doing a “quick buff”.

This is the reason why costs are significantly higher with paint correction due to the additional hours required in providing a true correction of the paint. Please be aware that every car’s paintwork is different, certain defects may not be able to be removed due to clear coat and other factors. Advice can be provided upon sighting the vehicle.

“If you’re looking for an expert car detailer in Brisbane or Gold Coast, look no further! We had Phil from Superior Details Solutions apply a Gtechniq ceramic coating to our new car and the results speak for itself. Phil kept us up to date throughout the process and even offered us an earlier timeslot when one became available. Easy to understand and affordable pricing for a high-quality ceramic coating product and detailing service. Thanks, Sam.”

Phil has now applied Gtechniq to two cars of mine, an M2 Competition and now my Ford Ranger. Phil’s attention to detail is absolutely and irrefutably second to none. The work he performs is worth every cent, even if you were to only take in to account the many hours to be saved washing your cars over the years, not to mention the stunning shine, gloss and all around stunning results. In my experience with Phil, he’s also always been happy to share tips and advice on maintenance, upkeep and products that are worth owning long after his job is done.

What fantastic work Phil does. Phil and Superior Detail Solutions has just completed applying the full protective treatment to my new BMW 330i , inside and out, and what an absolute superb job he has done. The photos will tell the whole story. Paint. wheels, tyres, glass, carpets, leather and vinyl. The paint shines like a show car and I was disappointed to have had to drive back to NSW in the pouring rain, but when I arrived you wouldn’t have known it had travelled 100km in the rain and road grime. Not a bit of grime on the paint tyres and wheels.
