Is your car's paint looking dull and damaged? One simple solution to restore your paint's original shine is a 1-step paint correction. This process uses a specialized polishing compound and machine polisher to remove up to 80% of minor imperfections, like swirl marks and light scratches.
What is a 1 Step Paint Correction?
A 1-step paint correction is a quick and easy process that can be done in just a few hours. Unlike multi-step paint correction processes, which can take a full day to complete, a 1-step correction is a fast solution to restore your car's paint. This process involves using a machine polisher and a specialized polishing compound to remove a small amount of the clear coat from your car's paint.
Compared to multi-step paint correction processes, a one step correction is quicker and requires less time to complete, making it a popular choice among car owners.
With a 1-step paint correction, your car's paint will look like new again, with a shiny and smooth finish that hides minor imperfections.
This is an excellent option for vehicle owners who wish to rejuvenate their vehicle's shine without committing to a full-scale restoration like our Level 2 paint correction service.
