Gold detail.

Our GOLD correction detail is the highest-grade package we'd recommend if you use your car regularly on the road.

Our GOLD correction detail is suited to cars with more extensive defects, such as deeper scratches or chemical etching, and cars dulled through wear and tear over a number of years. However, it is also generally recommended for cars suffering from ‘unfinished’ workmanship from a paint shop – or indeed the original production line. Ugly leftover sanding marks can be quite deep and are a common feature on hand-worked paintwork, whether it is from a repairer, or a low-volume manufacturer…

Our GOLD correction detail is the highest-grade package we’d recommend if you intend to use your car regularly on the road, since much of the extra time and effort involved in the next package up could be quickly ‘undone’ through regular use. Realistically, a GOLD detail will restore even a quite poorly maintained car to a stunning ‘showroom’ condition.  Cars in reasonably good order to begin with will be improved to ‘much better than showroom’ standard!

The paintwork will benefit from a three-stage paint correction process, where even heavy imperfections will be rectified (within the limits of what’s physically possible) and all swirl marks, general bird dropping stains, etchings and minor/medium depth scratches will be eliminated. This is because we’ll spend longer both on the aggressive polishing stages (more thoroughly removing specific defects and imperfections), and on the refining stage (bringing up the gloss level to an even purer standard than on the junior packages). With 30 to 45 hours of machine polishing, we would aim to achieve 90-95% correction on most ‘normal’ used cars for an absolutely jaw-dropping standard of finish.  On cars in good condition to begin with, there’s every chance we will leave the paintwork practically flawless throughout. In addition (and as standard), your leather is deep cleaned, fed and conditioned, your mats will be removed and shampooed, the engine bay will be degreased, cleaned and dressed and if your car has a soft top that will be scrubbed clean and sealed with a fabric protector too.  Unless opting for our popular Gtechniq protection package, multiple layers of high quality wax/sealant will be applied to finish off the exterior.
