Hand Wash

Simon's Paintwork Correction is a multistage process that includes measuring paint thickness, decontamination, paint cleaning, re-leveling, polishing, and application of a long lasting coating. Paintwork Correction can also include wet sanding in some cases depending on the condition of the vehicle’s finish. Simon’s has 3 levels of paintwork correction.

Minor - Removes wash marks and prepares the surface for advanced coatings.

Major - For darker paint finishes and higher severity of damage that needs to be repaired.

Severe - The most labor intensive and invasive paintwork correction service that is available. May include wet sanding.

Paintwork Correction Detail

This service provides the highest level of Paintwork Correction possible. It significantly improves the finish by removing swirls and all but the heaviest of scratches and defects. Typically this process will eliminate 80-95% of all defects. This detail is recommended for anyone looking to bring a vehicle back to new or better-than-new condition.

This service includes complete paint correction, which will remove unsightly swirl marks, micro-marring, holograms, light scratches, bird stains, and water marks. Dr. Beasley's Formula 1201 Paint Sealant is applied to preserve and protect the polished finish. Additionally, a minimum of two layers of Dr. Beasley's Ivory Carnauba Wax are applied over a period of two days, which will give your car an eerily luminous shine.

The Paintwork Correction Detail is our most comprehensive and complete detail service. As this service uses only premium products which require time consuming and laborious procedures, we will need your car for a minimum of 2 days.
