What Does Paint Correction Do? Mercedes E63 AMG Restored and Protected

Mercedes AMG | Paint Correction | After | Front three quarters

Have you ever wondered why your car doesn’t shine like it used to? Or have you ever bought a new vehicle only to find out the one you drive away with doesn’t pop like the model on the showroom floor? Even after a fresh wash when your car doesn’t have a single flake of dust on it, it still doesn’t look quite right.

Here’s why.

Automotive paint is a delicate thing. It is beautiful when seen in pristine condition, but awfully delicate. That means a whole host of potential hazards can mar your car’s appearance. Sometimes this means large, visible disfigurements. But more often the marring occurs in thousands of tiny scratches, spots, or fades. You may not be able to see it from a few feet away when casually looking over a vehicle, but collectively they inhibit the depth and clarity of your paint, rendering it unimpressive.

That’s where paint correction comes in.

The good news is that the majority of these paint defects can be removed through a series of paint decontamination and correction. And if you want evidence, we have it.

Last week a customer brought his new Mercedes E63 AMG to our shop. As you can see, the vehicle was in poor condition when he received it. Swirl marks were all over the car. Hard water spots were prevalent on the hood. We even found a collection of streaks and fades from previous attempts to polish.

Our customer wanted to apply Paint Protection Film and a Ceramic Coating, but before we can apply any layers of protection, we have to get the factory paint in pristine condition. Any defect in the paint that is left unresolved will become permanent once a protective film or coating is placed on top of it. So we carefully removed all contaminants and restored the paint to its original glory.

Now take a look at some before and after images side by side.

In the end, we were able to restore a showroom finish to this car, and provide layers of protection so that it stays that way for years to come.
