CAR DETAILING

OVERVIEW

Final Glaze detailing is the performance of an extremely thorough cleaning, polishing and waxing of an vehicle, to produce a show quality level of detail. Besides improving the appearance of cars, detailing helps preserve the car, and thus, increases resale value.

Modern paintworks particularly are so easy to damage with poor washing techniques and can soon look dull, scratched and tired. Simply washing your car with a sponge in a circular motion can cause what we call swirl marks - fine circular scratches in the paint work.

Previously, the only solution was a respray. This is no longer the case. Using a range of high quality products, Final Glaze can transform your car into better than showroom condition.

With each detail package, we include a 'Safe Wash Method', this includes:

  • pH neutral snow foam bath.
  • Vehicle jet washed.
  • Alloy wheels are washed then cleaned.
  • Tyres and arches are jet washed and degreased by hand.
  • All door shuts are degreased and rinsed.
  • Washing using two bucket method.
  • All lower bodywork degreased to remove any tar spots.
  • Paintwork decontaminated using a clay bar to remove all contaminants.
  • Full car hand dried with micro fibre towels.

FAQ's

1What can I expect from defect removal?
The final glaze level depends on the initial state of the paintwork and what service you wish to pay for. As a guide most cars can be corrected to a substantial amount (90%) in these 2-3 days. If the vehicles paintwork is particularly severe then additional time may be required.
2Does machine polishing remove paint?
Yes, typically 2-5 microns of paint are removed per detail, depending on the service choosen. The average depth of paintwork is around 80-130 microns. A paint gauge is used to obtain the depth of paintwork and to determine the safe amount that can be removed per panel.
3How can I keep the Final Glaze?
Careful hand washing using a two bucket method is advisable after rinsing the vehicle with a hosepipe or snow foam. AVOID automatic car washes and local hand wash! Advice will be given to ensure your vehicle can be maintained. Also a six month wax top-up can be arranged.
4How long will the finish last?
Defects in the paint work are permanently removed and, in theory, the finish will last forever. However, as mentioned above if you do not correctly maintain your paintwork while washing, new swirl marks/scratches may appear.
