Major Correction & Protection

From £P.O.A* (minimum 1 week booking)

Refined Detail’s ‘signature’ detail – designed for the demanding perfectionist who strives for every little detail to be as perfect as it possibly can. An ideal detail when preparing a car for concours competitions. An extremely time consuming detail that leaves the vehicle looking better than new – predominantly for cars that are not daily drivers – better suited for show cars, concours cars and rare collectables. Aimed to remove as many of the paint defects as it is deemed safe to. This may include swirl marks, cobwebbing, RDS, bird etchings, light scratches and hologrammes. This leaves absolutely nothing untouched and as well as covering every point outlined below, can be further customised with clients individual requirements.

This detail must be carried out at my unit in Henfield (BN5) to allow me to control the working environment fully (something that is necessary when striving for perfection and to allow products to work correctly) I can also arrange for full wheel refurbishment / recolouring and Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) to be carried out whilst the car is in my custody.

N.B – An initial consultation is required for this service before an accurate price can be given for the work involved.
