Service overview

Surface refinement is a highly effective 6-stage process that can help bring back the lost shine of a car’s exterior paint due to prolonged exposure to dirt, dust, and other environmental contaminants. The process begins with a thorough washing to remove any loose dirt and debris. After washing, the car undergoes claying/tar removal to eliminate any stubborn contaminants on the surface. The next stage involves sanding, which removes any scratches or marks on the paintwork. The rubbing/compounding stage is where any swirl marks or fine scratches are removed by using an abrasive compound. The polishing stage helps to restore the shine and luster of the paint by removing any dullness. The final stage involves applying a liquid or synthetic wax to protect the paint and give it a long-lasting shine. The surface refinement process is a great way to rejuvenate the look of your car’s exterior and give it a brand-new appearance.
