Protection Detail

From £300* Exterior only (4-6 hours)

From £350* Full interior & exterior (1 day booking)

An ideal opportunity to get a glimpse at how different your car can look with a ‘Refined Detail’ treatment. A Protection Detail is a thorough 3 stage paint de-contamination process, followed by paint cleansing and the application of durable paint, wheel and glass protection. Here the clay bar treatment will make a huge improvement to the overall appearance and feel of the paintwork over the finish that a valet can offer – it’s surprising just how much contamination bonds itself to the car’s paintwork over the years – even if it is washed and polished regularly. A protection detail is also an ideal annual top up for a previously detailed vehicle. This detail is a cost effective alternative to the ‘long life sealants’ that car dealerships often try to sell you (the likes of Autoglym Lifeshine, Gard-X, Diamondbrite, Supaguard, A-Glaze etc) the products and methods I use ensure that the paintwork is properly prepared prior to any form of protection being applied, therefore allowing the sealant to adhere to the surface properly, delivering maximum durability, and the finest finish possible. This does not offer any form of paintwork correction to remove wash marring / swirl marks.

If you opt for the interior detail too, your car’s cabin will be thoroughly valeted. Carpets and fabric overmats will be protected with a fabric protectant along with cloth seats (where applicable) Leather seats will be deep cleaned and sealed, and plastics also deep cleaned before being dressed with a natural look, anti static, non-silicone protectant to prevent UV fading and discourage dust.

This detail is only available as a mobile option upon prior arrangement. Otherwise 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).
