A typical full paint correction will involve a lengthy and meticulous process as follows.
Step 1: Pre-rinse Paintwork
Pre-rinse vehicles paintwork and allow to soak under a blanket of ‘Snow Foam’
Step 2: Full & Thorough Wheel Cleanse
Whilst the paint of the car is soaking to loosen up the dirt, we clean the wheels using PH neutral wheel cleaner to remove brake dust and tar spots from both the face & the inside edges of the wheels. At the same time, the tires will be cleaned removing inground dirt.
Step 3: Pre-treat & Jetwash Wheel Arches
Pre-treat & jet wash inside the wheel arches to remove dirt. The best attributes of our detailers are that we thoroughly clean in places others can’t even see.
Step 4: Rinse bodywork & two-bucket method wash
Rinse the car’s bodywork with clean water & then wash carefully using the “two buckets” method to minimize contaminant transferal to the cars paintwork, thereby minimizing infliction of “wash marks”. All washing carried out using 100% lambs wool wash mitts.
Step 5: Bodywork & Wheels dried using waffle weave method
The car’s bodywork & wheels are the carefully dried using “waffle weave” and microfibre drying cloths.
Step 6: Bonded contaminants on paintwork removed
Bonded contaminants on the cars paintwork are now removed using a clay bar to leave a smooth surface ready for machine polishing.
Step 7: Thickness measurement of the vehicles paint
Measurements are then taken of the thickness of the cars paint using a Fischer paint thickness gauge; any areas that are thinner than desirable will require very careful consideration as to the best method of correction to avoid breaking through the paint.
Step 8: Check paint condition with Brinkman inspection lamp
Nearly ready for machine polishing now, but first we check the paint condition with the aid of a Brinkman paint inspection lamp, this makes spotting any imperfections a great deal easier.
Step 9: Electrical machine polishing on paintwork
Only now is the paintwork ready for machine polishing. Using an electrical machine polisher, we start with the finest grade of polish, gradually working up to coarser grades of polish as required to achieve a good level of correction. Then we work back down to the finest grade of polish to refine the paintwork finish. At all stages the cars trim adjacent to the area being worked on will be masked carefully to avoid damage.
Step 10: Localized wet sanding procedure (if required)
At this stage it may be necessary to carry out some localized wet sanding to facilitate full removal of any RDS (random deep scratches), once again, paint thickness will be checked, if the paint is too thin wet sanding will not be possible.
Step 11: Remove residue from polish using a full body wipe-down
Now we carry out a full body wipe down with IPA to remove any residue from the polish, leaving your paint perfectly clean ready for the first stage in the waxing process.
Step 12: Prime in preparation for wax application
The paintwork is now ready to be primed in preparation for the application of the wax. With the ultimate products in high-end care, our Miracle Detail is suited for those who demand supreme attention to detail and expert craftsmanship.

This treatment is perfect for preparing your vehicle for an award winning show-ready finish or simply bringing out the true potential of your paint.
Step 13: Cleanse glass, plastics & tires then apply wax sealant
As a final touch, we clean the glass. Dress the plastics, dress the tires and apply a wax sealant to the wheels to reduce the effects of brake dust & make future cleaning easier.
