Paint Correction / Cut and polish – How does it work?

Utilising our signature three-stage paint correction method, we meticulously decontaminate, inspect and assess the health of your vehicle, before proceeding with a single, dual or triple stage paint correction process to suit your needs. This removes any defects such as scratches, swirls and holograms from the paint, leaving a perfect surface for paint protection.

WHAT IS DECONTAMINATION ? 

Over a period of time when your car is neglected and un protected environmental fall out like pollution , metal ferris practicals , tree sap, and road tar can all stick to your paint surface making it extremely ruff and dulling the shine of your vehicles paint surface . At fine shine we perform two decontamination processes before any of our paint correction and paint protection services without this process we will not achieve proper results . First process is a chemical decontamination  this process lifts and removes very stubborn environmental fall out cleaning the pours of your paint . The second process is a mechanical process with the use of a clay bar. The gliding of the clay bar over the paint surface with lubrication removes bonded contamination assuring that we are working with an extremely clean surface . Proper preparation is the key to excellent results !!!
