What is Paint Correction?

Paint correction is a process that involves using specialized tools and products to remove imperfections in the clear coat of a vehicle's paint. These imperfections can include swirl marks, fine scratches, etched bird dropping spots, holograms, oxidation, and etched water spots, among others. By removing these imperfections, paint correction can restore the clarity and shine of the clear coat, making the paint appear more vibrant and reflective.


This process can take several hours or even days, depending on the severity of the imperfections and the size of the vehicle. It is typically recommended for vehicles that have significant imperfections in the clear coat, as it can be a more intensive and costly process than traditional detailing methods.


Level I Correction

Level 1 correction is a one-step paint correction process that aims to remove light swirls and scratches, enhance the color and clarity of the paint, and restore some gloss to the finish. This correction is ideal for new or well-maintained vehicles that have minimal defects on their paint surface.


Typically, a level 1 correction will remove around 60-80% of surface defects, leaving a much-improved finish. However, for heavily damaged paint surfaces, a more intensive correction process may be required.

Level II Correction

Level 2 correction is a two-step paint correction process that involves a more intensive approach to removing defects from the paint surface. In the first step, the paint is leveled to remove moderate scratches, swirls, oxidation, and defects using abrasive compounds and pads. This step is designed to correct the underlying damage to the paint surface.

In the second step, the paint is polished to remove any light marring caused by the abrasive compounds used in the first step. This step is designed to refine the surface and restore clarity and gloss to the paint finish.

Overall, a level 2 correction process can remove around 80-95% of surface defects, making it ideal for vehicles with moderate to severe paint damage.
