  • The transformation back to a brand new condition was amazing. Check out the before (gray) and after (Air Force Blue). It brought back the beautiful blue hiding under all the build up. First class customer service and instruction on how to wash my car for lasting results. This is the place to bring your car. I chose a sealer instead of ceramic and it was like glass. Worth every penny.

If it’s not coated, it’s not protected. Make your car look new again with our paint correction process!


During this step, we clean the wheels, do a decontamination wash, and remove any clay or iron from the vehicle

Paint Correction

This is the Compound Phase – we inspect paint for level of imperfections, fix the imperfections, and then move to the polishing step


We use a polish to remove imperfections left behind by compounding and to add shine to the vehicle

Sealant or Ceramic Coatings

Use a Sealant or ceramic coating to cover and protect the compound/polish work. This helps prevent future grime from penetrating the paint
