Stage 1 Paint Correction Service for Your Mobile Auto Detailing Needs in the San Francisco Bay Area

Remove The Paint Imperfections and Reveal The Gloss

Paint Swirl Removal usually referred to as the process of paint correction is to remove paint defects along with minor scratches and swirls resulting in that shiny paint your vehicle had out of the factory. We go through a buffing process and a polishing step, through various pads and products to ensure maximum results.

Our paint correction process is very time consuming and can vary by vehicle type, size, condition and paint color.It takes a lot of patience and skill as our service duration can last anywhere from 6 hours to 8 hrs. But on the bright side your paint will look magnificent after we have properly corrected your car's paint and restored its natural shine wether we serviced your car with a stage 1 or 2 or provided our color enhancement service. Stage 1 Paint Correction is the perfect choice for car owners who want to enhance the appearance of their vehicle without the extensive time and cost associated with more intensive correction processes. This service is designed to address minor imperfections such as light swirl marks, fine scratches, and holograms that dull the paint surface over time.

Our Stage 1 Paint Correction Process

Initial Assessment: We inspect your vehicle to assess the condition of the paint and identify areas that require correction.

Safe Wash:

We start by washing your car using safe, pH-balanced products to remove dirt and debris without causing any further damage to the paint.

Paint Decontamination:

We use clay bars and special cleaners to remove contaminants such as tar, industrial fallout, and tree sap that washing alone cannot eliminate.

Machine Polishing:

Using professional-grade polishers and compounds, we carefully polish the paint to reduce or eliminate swirl marks, light scratches, and other imperfections.

Finishing Touches:

We apply a high-quality wax or sealant to protect the newly corrected paint and enhance its gloss and depth.
