It may sound like a cliché but you can really polish money back into a vehicle. A Major Paint Correction is for vehicles that have severe paintwork defects such as scratches, buffer trails, bird bomb etchings, overspray and sanding marks to name but a few. Essentially, this level of service gives what could be described as a neglected car a second chance in life.
Please note that sometimes it is best to only go so far when correcting paintwork and therefore 100% correction isn’t always possible. As a general rule, if a scratch can be caught with a fingernail, then to make that area 100% defect free it will usually require paint. These types of scratches can be visibly reduced but may not be fully corrected.
This multiple stage machine correction aims to remove >90% of surface defects and promises to transform the vehicle.
