Orange peel is always a fun one.

I will do the best i can with the polisher, but the only real way to get rid is wet sanding, which is VERY time consuming.... And scarey lol

Thats not a problem chap. I did try to explain on an above post, but even when i read it back to myself it doesnt make sense lol.

As long as the booking is made before April 1st for the work to be carried out before May 1st its all good. For example

Book your car with me on say march 25th, for the work to be carried out April 25th :thumbsup:

you will get a better explanation from Boost Mad but AFAIK paint correction is like removing all the swirl marks and fine scratches, etc which make the paint look bad, and it is done using abrasive polishes instead of painting?


Boost Mad.....why can't you be closer to me :(

I dont even know where you are lol




Basicly what i am offering is one step down from an exterior detail an will include the following


1) APC spray,
2) Pressure wash rinse
3) Snowfoamrinse
4) wash with TBM + rinse + dry
5) paint measurements taken from around the car and noted down
6) clay the paintwork ( removes any bonded contaminants )
7) Tape up unpainted plastics + glass etc
8) correct the paintwork use deminishable polishes and pads + rotary & orbital polisher - wipe down
9) glaze - wipe down
10) seal and/or wax as nessercary
11) treat plastics
12) clean glass inside and out
13) and admire


the correction stage removes a fine layer of the top coat ( be it lacquer or colour ), this in turn can remove light scratches, swirl marks and on older cars the top layers get oxidized and fade/mist over time. This is often hard to see and it only happens with time its not dirrectly noticable. But once corrected it will give depth and clarity ( darker cars reflect more, but lighter cars tend to have more of a wet look to them )

Hope that explains that.

Part of me feels that im missing something. so may update in a bit
