Paint Correction Sydney

Industry Leading Car Paint Correction & Restoration in Sydney

Superior Shine can restore your scratched, faded or damaged paint work to a slick mirror like finish once again. Most of these are imperfections inflicted by Automatic / DIY car washes or poor wash techniques where sponges are used which can trap dirt and grit between the sponge and the paint work and scratch the surface resulting in swirl marks or even worse, deep scratches.

Paint Correction involves a highly experienced operator measuring the paint work with a Digital Paint Thickness Gauge in several locations on each panel to determine how much paint is left on the vehicle, the paint work is clay barred to remove embedded contamination and imperfections are removed by machine polishing down to the depth of the defect to permanently remove them, this will remove such things as swirl marks, scratches, holograms, oxidation, & buffer trails by using different combinations of compounds, abrasive polishes, finishing polishes and buffing pads to specifically suit your vehicles paint work.

Superior Shine will not leave buffer trails like inexperienced operators or use products that contain fillers that will simply wash out within weeks, all products used are premium high quality polishes imported from the USA and Europe.

*Please note our Paint Correction service is only available at our Workshop*

Stage One Paint Correction is suited to cars already in good condition with no swirl marks that are just looking for a gloss enhancement. A Stage One is not enough to remove swirl marks from dark coloured cars.

Stage Two Paint Correction is suited to cars with minor to moderate swirl marks and light scratches, it involves an abrasive polish to remove imperfections followed by a finishing polish to refine the paint work further.

Stage Three Paint Correction is suited to cars in poor condition with deeper scratches, heavy swirling or faded paint work, it involves a heavy cutting polish, followed by an abrasive polish then a finishing polish to refine the paint work further.

What is the difference between a Cut n Polish and a Paint Correction?

Technically there is no difference, they are both “Machine Polishing”. However, a “Cut n Polish” is a term you will generally find being used by Car Wash Cafe’s and by cheap Detailers doing a “Quick Buff”. A Paint Correction is generally a term used by a professional who has a keen eye for detail and chases every imperfection to get the paint work in perfect condition with a combination of polishes, polishing pads, machines and techniques that suit the type of paint work on your vehicle.

Why does a Paint Correction cost much more then places doing a Cut n Polish?

As mentioned in the answer above a Paint Correction is generally a much more extensive machine polish by a professional who will take the time to get the paint work right and remove the imperfections. As a guide, a Stage Two Correction can take approx. 30-45 min per panel, times this by 10-13 panels on a car and it comes to 5-9hrs just to machine polish the car alone! If you are after a cheap cut n polish, chances are you will get cheap quality work!

Your prices say "From", how do i know how much it will cost?

Due to there being many different types of vehicles and the condition of the paint work can vary greatly we can only give an estimate, the final cost would depend on how much work is involved. Please Contact Us and we will be able to give you an estimate.

Do you guarantee all imperfections will be removed?

We strive to produce a perfect finish however a number of things have to be taken into consideration such as the budget and not all imperfections can always be removed as they may be too deep, affected the clear coat or simply there is not enough clear coat left on the car to polish back.

Why do you require the vehicle at your workshop?

To ensure we deliver high quality workmanship we need to perform our Paint Correction service in a controlled environment.

How long will this service take?

A Paint Correction service can take anywhere from 3 hours to 2 days depending on the overall condition of the paint work and the amount of work involved.
