Our technicians will examine the car paint in order to spot scratches or other damages.

Cleaning and preparation

We proceed with a deep exterior car wash to get rid of dirt and contaminants.


In this phase we protect all the surfaces that don’t have to be involved during the polishing phase, like plastic and rubber parts, chrome details, glasses…


We proceed with all the polishing steps. We start by using a highly abrasive paste and pad and than we gradually use a more and more softer paste and pad in order t donate brightens and depth to the paint. If you are dealing with difficult car body conditions, because of fore example deep scratches, you can use abrasive papers with different grains before polishing.

Long lasting protection

Once you completed the previous step we suggest proceeding with the application of one of the following protective treatments:

• Protective wax
