Paint Polishing

How its done. How it should be.

The truth of the matter is, the majority of the cars you see on the road today could stand to use a bit of polishing. Just look at a painted finish in direct sun and you'll likely see swirl marks, spiderwebs, isolated defects, oxidation, and/or holograming. This is the result of years of neglect or improper care techniques (or lack thereof)


You might be asking, "But doesn't a good 'buff and wax' take care of all that?" In most cases, not usually. We've been doing this long enough to know that most clients have varying definitions of what a 'buff' job actually is. For the vast majority, it seems to mean hand applying a layer of wax or polish and then buffing the product off with a towel. This is a pretty standard procedure and can create an appearance that looks great because the paint has been cleansed, but under the right lighting will still show everything.   


Machine polishing the paint yields different results because rather than masking the defects, it is an attempt to fix them. The friction generated from different pads and products combined with the power and speed of a machine do the work that is needed to correct and enhance the finish. This is how it's done properly. 


We care about doing it right, because ultimately that is how it should be. While it is not realistic for every car on the road to look perfect, or for every owner to care, you can rest assured knowing that we have the knowledge and skill to do so for your vehicle.
