For the vast majority of cars, paint correction really can make an unimaginable difference and will completely remove or significantly reduce most marks. I am trained in using RUPES BIG FOOT System with specially created pads and compounds to work with LHR15 mark 2 or 3. On top of that, I am using Kamikaze Collection Banzai Dynamics Beast backing plate that is manufactured to sit below the RUPES anti-spin shroud allowing for a higher spin rate and free-spin orbits to enhance the compounding action of the polisher.
Paint correction is also known as paint restoration, swirl mark removal, machine polishing, car mopping or buffing. The definition of paint correction is the removal of all imperfections in paintwork, such as scratches, watermarks, swirl marks, dried bug remains and fading to reproduce an as new condition or better.
The surface of the paint reminds peaks and valleys, in order to achieve optimum paint appearance, I am aiming to make it as flat as possible so the reflection of the light in the eye is flawless.
It involves the use of a machine polisher (usually a rotary, orbital, random orbital / dual action polisher), a selection of abrasive compounds, polishes and an assortment of buffing pads (usually cutting, polishing and finishing pads), together with regular checks with a paint depth gauge whilst polishing, to keep record of exactly how much lacquer is being abraded away. Lustre reading is done before and after to measure the difference of gloss in the paintwork.
I am always making sure that our pads are new and regularly cleaned between panels worked upon while machine polishing and our compounds and polishes does not have any fillers in so the results achieved are true.
