Paint Correction & Protection Melbourne

Paint Correction

Paint corrections can be a catalyst to how your car stands out.


Gloss retention, (the shine of your car ) is impacted by the imperfections of the paintwork, contaminants and the number of different angles embedded in your top layer or coating, are what stops your car from having a glassy finish.


Orange peel is a term used to describe another imperfection that affects the gloss on your car, which can look just like the name describes. Sometimes to the touch, you can feel the inconsistency of this texture.


Some of the corrections we specialize in are


  • Orange peel reduction

  • Resprayed Car Corrections

  • Deep Scratch Removals

  • Wetsanding

  • Brand New Car Gloss Retention Enhancements

  • Showroom finishes

  • Car Shows 

  • Exotic Imported Car Corrections 


Below is a video of a 2021 VW Tiguan, where the gloss retention was measured (72 to out of a possible 96.6) straight out of the dealership.

Before we applied Avery Dennison PPF and Graphene Oxide Paint Protection, we were able to achieve an almost perfect score of 95.5 out of 96.6. This is the art of a sophisticated paint correction.


We use a gloss meter in house at our showroom and can show you the before and afters, which is an enjoyable exercise for the car enthusiasts.


Another tool that we use is a paint gauge thickness meter, and a detailed report is also sent to you after the completion of your correction.


The paint thickness gauge allows us to also see if there have been any previous panel damage, fillers under your paintwork and also respray work conducted.


Sam has a plethora of knowledge passed down to him by mentors who worked for both Lotus and Rolls Royce with over 50+ years in the auto sector. This along with experience in painting, allows Sam and his team to explain things to you a lot easier about what’s going on on the surface of your paint, but also producing results that is by the highest standards, exceptional workmanship.

Paint Protection

Then look no further, you have finally reached your destination for the best and most affordable car paint protection in Melbourne. By the end of your visit, we hope and trust that we will have helped you make up your mind about car paint protecting one of your prized possessions' exterior-your car.

Driving your car daily in the harsh Melbourne sun and polluted atmosphere  absolutely puts your beloved car at the risk of its paint fading, and at worst, peeling. To give your vehicle that added car paint protection it so desperately needs, we strongly recommend ceramic coating. Ceramic coating?

What's that, mate? We hear you ask. Well, you've come to the right place for this most enlightening life lesson on car paint protection. 

We will have you know, that ceramic coating is what has been giving your neighbours and most motorists in Melbourne that extra car paint protection which your car is lacking-hence its fading colour, and at worst, peeling.

Simply defined, ceramic coating is a lean glass-like film that is applied over car paint to protect its exterior from such weather elements as UV rays and smog. It also makes it easier to keep dirt-free and spotless. In addition to protecting the exterior of your car, the ceramic coating gives your car that which all proud car owners want - an almost new look.

Still undecided whether you should bring your car in or not? Fine, let us give you that one extra push- FIVE more reasons why you should seriously consider ceramic coating for your car.

Ceramic Coating:
  1. defends your car from UV damage and oxidation

  2. makes cleaning easy-peasy to clean

  3. improves the gloss of your car, to almost new.

  4. enables car paint protection and resistance against harsh chemicals

  5. car paint ruin and scratches are reduced
