Paint Correcting (General help req'd)



I have some swirl marks on the Trophy and want it PC'ing.

I think it has been washed to death with a sponge tbh.....

Anyway, who in the NW does this? How much will I end up paying?
 
Yeah, I saw that he advertises it on his profile. Hmmmm, I wanted to know before spending that it would remove swirls and all blemishes.....?

JD's your boy for this...

100% correction is difficult. But it will be alot better!

You should be looking at £100ish for a part time enthusiast/pro, depending on products used.

You got to love people that want it for next to nothing

Detailing gear to correct a car - £300

Years of experience and product knowledge - £Priceless

Thats a bit light! £150min.

Depends on the experience levels though... the problem with someone who has just bought a G220, removed a swirl and then starts charging for their professional service, is that they normally have no clue of how much paint they are removing.

As said before, you only have so much clear, so get a rookie with some Power Gloss and you probably won't have much left.

So the £100 is for the pending respray :)

I think you're right though - £150 for proper correct and refine, as a minimum.

Definitely speak to JD Jamie, he's well respected when it comes to this and a gent also.

My 1 day correction is 150. That included, Washing, claying, Compounding, Refining, Sealing and waxing. I limit myself to cars in good nick where one hit per panel is enough!!! Seeing a car before hand is absolutely critical, i won't touch a car without seein it first.

That said i'm doing my pals BM this weekend for nowt! Arn't i nice!

I just spent the full weekend polishing my mates mum's 57 335i. Looked insane when it was finished tho. Paintwork was in a right state, we didnt clay it as the post didnt tun up until 4 days after we made the order for some, and my mate was out when it came. Pads were fucked and i mushroomed about 3 of them.

I didnt get paid - but i did get a bed for friday/saturday night and i got fed which is awsome.
