Paint Correction Sydney


Superior Shine can repair your swirl marks, light scratches and increase the gloss of your paintwork to a slick, flawless, mirror-like finish once again. Automatic and DIY car washes are a common cause of damage to car exteriors, as they can often loosen up trapped granules of dirt and grit and simply push it around the surface of the car, scratching the paintwork in the process (this leads to those awful “swirl marks” you often see on cars).

Don’t settle for an inexperienced or inferior Sydney paint correction service – come see the experts

Paint correction is a very intricate and sophisticated process, which can only be carried out with complete precision by a highly experienced professional. It involves measuring the paintwork of a vehicle with a Digital Paint Thickness Gauge in numerous locations across each individual panel to determine how much paint remains on the car’s exterior.

Then, the paint work is clay-barred to remove embedded contaminations and imperfections, machine polished down to the source of the scratch or blemish to permanently remove it from the paintwork. This step requires high quality equipment such as abrasive polishes, finishing polishes and buffing pads that specifically suit your vehicle’s type of paint.

Unlike inexperienced or inferior paint correction operators, Superior Shine will not leave buffer trails on your vehicle, nor will we use products that contain fillers that simply wash out within weeks. All the products we use are premium, high-quality polishes imported from the USA and Europe.

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 to remove or reduce them by 90%, 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, it involves a heavy cutting polish, followed by an abrasive polish then a finishing polish to refine the paint work further to remove or reduce scratches by 90%.


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.
