Paint correction details northampton

dooka's Stage Three - Paint Correction and Restoration Details have been designed for those vehicles with more severe paintwork defects, such as deeper swirl marks, deep scratches that have been inflicted by hand and automatic washes and other poor washing techniques as well as just spending their life outside.

Paint Correction is a time intensive process taking anywhere from 30 - 50 plus hours, which involves removing defects and imperfections in paintwork such as heavy swirls marks, deeper scratches, oxidation birdlime and bug etching. This is achieved by using a systematic application of varying grades of cutting compounds and polishes and pads.

With over 20 years experience, dooka can safely and effectively remove these imperfections and something we specialise in. We will remove those unsightly swirls, buffer marks, holograms and oxidation from your vehicles paintwork, not just mask them with products containing fillers.

Before we carry out any paint correction, we inspect and measure the paintwork before and during the process to ensure there is sufficient paint to safely remove any imperfections. We do this by using a ultra sonic paint depth gauge which allows us to measure each individual paint layer. These measurements can also tell us whether the vehicle has had any paint repairs in the past.

We can usually guarantee full correction of at least 95%, subject to paint depths. Paint correction can often eliminate the need fora expensive re-sprays and restore the paintwork to a level that exceeds the original factory finish.

We are able to supply and apply sealants and waxes from such manufacturers as G|Techniq, CarPro, GYEON, Zaino, Swissvax, Polish Angel and more. Ceramic Coatings are at an extra cost.

Estimated time: 5+ Days
Prices start from £1200. (dependant on size and current vehicle condition )
