Enthusiast's Only Section
For those wanting to remove swirls, scratches, and other defects from your paints surface without the worry of buffing trails, or swirls coming back after a few washes. Our Enthusiast Level of detail isn't for everyone but is extremely rewarding to those that are ready to bring life back to their paint.
THE ART OF
Have you ever taken your car to have it "buffed" only to have it left riddled with buffer marks and more swirls than what was originally there? While many detail shops fill in the swirls and defects by using subpar waxes and polishes to hide them, we permanently remove them.
Paint correction is an art, and in the wrong hands a buffer/polisher can be a very dangerous tool that can cause more damage than good. By removing swirl marks and other defects from your paints finish we can create deep, rich , extremely clear paint. Whether it's rotary buffer swirls, bird etchings, or even scratches in paint, our Enthusiast Detail is designed to remove those defects safely and effectively. This is not a quick "buff" that is done in a matter of an hour or two, but 10's of hours of labor intensive polishing, measure the paint, and using proper lighting to ensure defects are removed safely. It is highly recommended that a Ceramic Coating be applied after a paint correction is performed to add a hard layer of UV protection down.

WHAT ARE DEFECTS?
Defects are any type of imperfection in the paint that takes away from light reflecting off of it perfectly. So swirls, scratches, wet sanding marks, water etching and spots, bird etchings, paint shrinkage, trash in the clear coat from painting, etc.
WHAT ABOUT MY NEW CAR?
So you just purchased your new vehicle, now what? Although we hate to say it, new vehicles have a long journey from the factory and into your hands. This leads to industrial fallout, rail dust from shipping, left over adhesive on the paint or glass, and even swirls from the dealership washing your brand new vehicle improperly.
Dealership "clean up guys" are pushing through 100's of vehicles a month in a lot of cases and aren't fully trained on using the correct methods to ensure they don't install swirls. Moving forward the paint needs to be detoxed, lightly polished, and protected with the best protection available.
Enthusiast Details need an IN PERSON evaluation to ensure this is the route for your vehicle as well as the amount of paint correction needed to get your paint work back in order. Every vehicle is different, with different defects, paint, and history. Before "buffing" away at it, we would like to inspect the paint thoroughly to ensure the best results. We will not discuss price without a consultation.
