Paint correction refers to the process of removing the imperfections in a vehicle’s finish and restoring it to an, often times, better than new state. These imperfections include but are not limited to, swirl marks or “spider webbing” from circular washing, automated carwashes, fine scratches, water spots, bird dropping etching, holograming caused by inexperienced detailers and the list goes on… Most common practicing detailers will fill fine scratches. In other words, your scratches are hidden and will only be revealed after you wash it several times. The only true way to remove scratches in your vehicle’s paint is with the process of paint correction, one of our specialties here at Master Detailers. Once the paint has been re-leveled, your scratches are gone for good, but it does require proper maintenance to keep your car looking great after the detail to avoid putting new scratches into your paint.

Have you ever looked at your car in the sun and thought that it looked like it was covered in a spider web? These are actually circular shaped scratches and are caused by improper washing techniques.

While it is impossible not to mildly scratch the surface during a wash (on an unwaxed car), these circular movements are actually what put those scratches in the paint, not remove them. Below is a simple diagram that shows why your eye is able to see a minute scratch in the vehicles finish in direct sunlight:
