The first step is to cover the car with a thick foam solution that has a built in decontamination agent, which chemically reacts with iron and tar deposits on the paints’ surface. This also removes all wax and grease that might be on the car. This will ensure the best possible adhesion for the paint protection step. This is then removed with a high pressure rinse, which includes the wheels and under the guards.
The car is then washed for the first time using the 2 bucket method with grit guards. A physical clay bar of the whole car is then carried out using the latest in clay towel technology. This step removes further contamination from the paintwork and helps restore it to a smooth, glass like finish. A final high pressure rinse is then conducted and the car is dried with the best microfiber drying towels.
The cars’ paint is inspected under professional LED lighting. This step will reveal the true condition of the paint; any swirl marks, scratches, oxidation etc, which will need to be corrected.
Multiple readings of the paints’ clear coat thickness will be taken over each panel to help formulate the best approach in relation to compounding, pads and machine polishing technique to use for the correction stage.
The correction stage, depending on clear coat thickness, will start with a cutting pad and cutting compound to remove heavy defects like swirls, scratches, oxidation and marring. This stage is done meticulously, breaking up each panel into smaller sections. After a section has been compounded, the residue is removed with a microfiber cloth and inspected under LED lighting after each pass of the polisher, to achieve the maximum correction possible with the remaining clear coat on the vehicle.
The next stage is the final stage of polishing. This is where a very fine polish is used with a very light foam pad for the ultimate pop and shine of your paint. The defects have been removed already, so this stage is simply to give the paint a very high gloss.
The final step before the paint protection goes on is to remove any leftover polishing oils from the compounding and polishing stages. This is done with Isopropyl Alcohol and is completely safe for your paint. This is then removed with the softest and most plush microfiber towels available to ensure no damage is done to the paint.
At this stage, the car is now ready for your paint protection.
1. Sealant & Wax – A sealant uses polymers that are fortified with more dirt-repelling power to keep your vehicle cleaner and shinier, longer. Wax is a special blend of Brazilian Ivory Carnauba and natural oils. These oils wet the paint, producing tremendous depth and richness. These 2 products combined will generally give you around 6-9 months of protection.
2. Ceramic Coating – Optimum Gloss-Coat is a semi-permanent ceramic coating that is going to provide an amazing level of gloss and relentless water beading and all the other properties you would expect from a wax or sealant, but it’s going to do it for the next for 2+ years!
