Correction Detail

The Correction Detail has been designed for those vehicles with the most severe paintwork defects and for those people looking for as close to perfection as the paintwork will allow. This includes removing defects such as deep swirl marks or deep scratches.

Markings such as these are caused by a poor wash process and automated car washes.  Wear and tear over time also takes its toll on the paintworks condition with things such as tree sap and bird etchings.

The correction detail is a long and overhauling process that is carried out over several days. Paintwork measurements are consistently taken whilst working around the car to ensure the integrity of the cars clearcoat and paint isn't lost. The aim of the process is to get the car as close to 99% perfect condition with every panel given multiple machine polish sets and refined down.

Due to the nature of this process, this package must be completed indoors. This can be provided at TheMattFinish HQ in Sittingbourne or at a clients choosing with adequate space and amenities. Click here for more details on the unit
