Enhancement Detail

This detail is designed to correct minor paint defects and enhance the visual appeal of bodywork, and is recommended for well maintained vehicles of all ages that have acquired light wash marring and faint swirl marks over time. It builds upon the full procedure outlined above for the Protection Detail by adding in a single stage machine polishing process. In each case, we start out by using a warm water foaming wash procedure to safely remove all traces of loose dirt and grime from the bodywork, wheels, arches and panel gaps. The engine bay is also washed at this stage, using either wet or dry methods depending on the engine type in question. We then chemically treat and clay the paint and exterior glass to remove any bonded surface contaminants such as tar spots, filings and sap, which leaves these surfaces feeling perfectly smooth. After drying the car off, the bodywork is then machine polished using an ultra fine finishing polish, in order to correct minor paint defects and maximise surface gloss in readiness for protection.

Please note that the level of correction associated with this service is not guaranteed. In all cases surface gloss will be massively enhanced, but visible defects may persist if they are too deep for the ultra fine finishing polish to fully remove.

We then apply either a high quality sealant or wax to the bodywork, this not only adds valuable protection against the elements that lasts for up to six months at a time, but also further enhances the appearance of the paint. We then complete the exterior detail by sealing the wheels and glass, dressing the tyres, trims and engine bay, and polishing the exhaust tips. Finally, we turn our attention to the interior, cleaning the trims, vacuuming the fabrics and conditioning any leather present. The entire process can usually be completed in two days (depending on the size of the car being treated) although large 4x4 vehicles will need to remain with us for three days in all cases (due to their size and thus considerably greater surface area, large 4x4 vehicles always take an additional 4-8 hours to complete, for which we automatically apply a fixed surcharge.
