Paint Correction Saves Your Paint, Restores Your Shine, & Protects Your Investment
On the other hand, if you have a new vehicle, you may be thinking, ‘My new car has the perfect shine! Why would I need a detailer?’
Regardless of the age or condition of your vehicle, you need a certified automotive detailer to help protect and over time, save your automotive investment!
Let Jimmy Edouard show you how to protect your new car and repair your aging car so that you will get more money for it when you sell or trade it in!
Your new vehicle, and that includes expensive sports cars and exotics, are mostly painted by automated machines and robots at the manufacturer. This process always leaves behind patches of uneven paint and holograms.
Then, on its way to the car lot or showroom, your new vehicle has been exposed to all types of unsavory contamination like railway dust and freight debris.
Once they arrive at the dealership, they are placed outdoors on the lot or driven onto the showroom floor where they are manhandled by trucking companies, automotive service technicians, sales representatives, and a slew of potential buyers, long before you signed ownership papers!
It wasn’t until the 1980s that car manufacturers began applying several layers of “clear coat” on top of automotive paint in hopes of extending the brilliance of the paint. The clear coat greatly contributes to a vehicle’s gloss, but the environment and climate rage against the clear coat in the same way it does single-stage paint.
That protective barrier takes the impact of any incoming assault on the paint like bird droppings, squashed bugs, tree sap, salt, sand, the heat of the sun, and oxidation – all of which prevent the brightness of the paint from showing through. The clear coat also catches fine scratches caused by road rash and everyday activity like bumping up against it with bags, keys, jewelry, etc.
It isn’t your paint, but a damaged clear coat that blocks the luster of the paint from shining through.
Don’t Try This at Home
Unlike clay bar, which cleans contaminants from the paint, paint correction uses a precision abrasive technique to remove a minuscule layer of damaged clear coat – about 1/100th of the thickness of a sheet of typing paper, followed by a skillful machine buffing, to bring the surface back to a high gloss.
This highly specialized detailing technique is known as Paint Correction, and if it sounds hazardous, it is if performed by anyone but a skillfully trained detailer and paint correction specialist like Jimmy Edouard at Auto Pro Detailing.
Jimmy repairs or corrects flaws in your paint that cause distortions in its shine, like holograms, swirl marks, and even burned paint caused by inexperienced detailers wielding an over-heated power buffer!
Many people think their paint is so faded and so scratched, nothing but a repaint is the answer.
Stop and let Jimmy inspect the health of your paint before spending the $3,000, $5,000 up to $8,000 to respray your vehicle. Chances are, Jimmy can perform a 1-stage or 2-stage paint correction and polish and you will be amazed at the result!
A lack of understanding or experience at paint correction can do more harm than good to the exterior of your vehicle, so hiring a certified professional like Jimmy will result in a shine that is often more brilliant than it was the day you drove it off the showroom floor!
