Car Detailing

Detailing involves a keen eye for perfection and detail as the name suggests. Detailing involves thorough cleaning that a basic “valet” doesn’t offer. We fully decontaminate the car before refining the vehicles paint work, making it defect-free, by the removal of scratches and marring through the careful use of various polishes and pad combinations. We then protect the car through the options of wax, ceramic or paint protection to ensure that the paintwork is sealed from further contaminants, protected and maintained to prevent any further damage to the paintwork.

Consultation

We believe in order for us to give you the best car detailing outcome, we require a consultation with you and your car. This is a FREE service which allows us to give you an in-depth overview of your vehicles current condition and what we can do to bring back the finish it once had or you wish to maintain. This includes Light Analysis, Dent & Damage repair detection as well as personal advice to what we could do & the likelihood of time & cost involved.

Cleaning

All vehicles undergo a process to remove all contaminants and foreign particles. This is done through a Multi-Stage wash process which includes:

A body solvent is used to help remove road tar, insect splatters, road grime and oil based substances.

A citrus pre-wash, snow foam and washing the car using a PH neutral shampoo using lambswool wash mitts, soft bristle detailing brushes and a twin grit-guard bucket method to prevent any stones and sharp objects from being carried onto the car from the wash mitt.

We use a non acidic and citrus based wheel cleaner and specific brushes to clean the wheels.

Door shuts, petrol cap, arches and lower sections will be cleaned if applicable & accessible.

A clay bar (mild or aggressive) is then used to remove bonded surface contaminants and tar from the vehicle.

Vehicle is then hand dried using double thick, highly absorbent microfibre towels.

Paint Correction

We use various stages of machine and hand polishing to remove fine scratches, swirls and holograms. This helps perfect the gloss and reflection levels of the paintwork. Sometimes the only way to remove deeper scratches and orange peel is through the use of wet sanding.

Level 1 detail from £299 + VAT

This detail is suited best for cars, previously detailed at some stage of their life and/or new cars before the application of paint protection film or ceramic coating. If your car has been used regularly and exposed to the elements, it would be better suited for a stage 2/3 detail.

Stage 1 includes a pre-detail wash using a 2 bucket method, decontamination by fallout remover and clay bar used to remove bonded contaminants from paintwork, a stage 1 machine polish (to eliminate minor swirl marks, scratches and holograms), a wax/silica based sealant, interior and exterior glass cleaned and finally tyres cleaned and dressed with a long lasting tyre gel.

Time - 12-16 Hours (2 Days)

Level 2 detail from £450 + VAT

This includes a level 1 detail. This detail is suited best for those wanting further paint correction than stage 1, eliminating defects such as light car park scrapes, water marks, bird droppings and ’buffer lines/ holograms’ left by inexperienced detailers and body shops.

The correction process consists of 2 stages of machine polishing - a first stage to remove a very fine layer of the clear coat and the surface defects. A second stage using a finer polish to remove any fine, hazy marring which then leaves your vehicle with exceptional gloss levels. Level 2 detail includes an engine bay detail, wheels removed and decontaminated, wheel arches cleaned and wheels sealed and protected.

Time - 24 - 40 Hours (3-5 Days)
//frshcustoms.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/IMG_3612.jpg

Level 3 detail from £600 + VAT

This includes all the above from the previous details. This package is most popular with cars which are slightly older (3+ years), when heavy swirling is evident, heavy scratches are visible and car is hazy and has lost its shine. A poorly maintained car can often be restored to a showroom condition, and reasonably good condition cars are restored to a condition which is better than showroom.

The car undergoes 3 stages of machine polishing, spending more time on the aggressive stages of polishing, to eliminate all defects within the top coat, such as bird droppings, etchings, swirl marks and minor/medium deep scratches. Also in this stage more time is spent on the refining stage to further enhance the gloss levels.

Level 3 detail also includes an interior detail and ceramic coating protection which can last for 12 months to 5 years.

Time - 45 - 60 Hours (4-6 Days)

Level 4 Signature Detail from £1300 + VAT

This includes level 1-3 detail. This is the detail for those who want the best finish their vehicle can get, guaranteeing a better finish than from factory regardless of condition of the paintwork. This detail eliminates severe swirls, medium to deeper scratches with the use of wet sanding, oxidisation, water marks and any other imperfections.

A variety of abrasive sand paper is used to re-level the paint surface and eliminate any orange peel. The vehicle then undergoes 4-5 stages of machine polishing to achieve a sharp reflection with a smooth surface. This detail normally achieves 99% paint correction. We leave nothing untouched with this detail includes the exterior trims, interior, engine bay so your car is better than new.

Time 60 - 100+ Hours (7 Days+)

Protection

This involves the application of a silicon wax which can last up to 3 months or a ceramic coating which lasts up to 5 years. Protection prevents foreign particles from adhering to the paintwork of the vehicle. Paint protection film is another service used to protect the paintwork

We offer different types of protection from layers of wax, ceramic coatings and ultimately paint protection.

We use coatings from Gtechniq and Cquartz who offer some of the best protective coatings for automotive surfaces including paintwork, glass, alloys and interior surfaces. They have a wide range of products which are proven to provide long lasting protection.
