Level 2 Paint Correction FAQ


What is a level 2 paint correction?


A level 2 paint correction is an advanced detailing process that goes beyond the surface to address deeper paint defects such as scratches, swirl marks, and oxidation. It involves both paint cutting and polishing to restore the paint's clarity and shine.

How does it differ from a level 1 paint correction?

While a level 1 correction focuses on a one-step polish to enhance gloss, a level 2 correction includes a more intensive paint cutting step to tackle deeper defects. It provides a comprehensive solution for more significant paint issues and imperfections.

Is a level 2 paint correction suitable for my car?


If your car exhibits deeper scratches, swirl marks, oxidation, or other notable paint defects, a level 2 paint correction is a great choice. It's also ideal for enthusiasts who want a higher level of paint restoration and protection.

How long does the process take?


The time required for a level 2 paint correction can vary based on factors like the size and condition of your vehicle. Generally, it can take anywhere from a full day to a couple of days to complete the process thoroughly.

Will a level 2 paint correction remove all scratches?

While a level 2 correction is highly effective in removing many types of scratches and defects, it may not eliminate exceptionally deep or severe scratches entirely. Our experts will assess your vehicle and provide insight into the expected outcomes during the initial evaluation.

How long will the results last?

The longevity of the results depends on various factors such as driving conditions, maintenance, and environmental exposure. With proper care, the effects of a level 2 paint correction can last up to 12 months or even longer.

Is a protective coating included in the process?


Yes, as part of the level 2 paint correction, a protective sealant is applied to the freshly corrected paint. This sealant acts as a barrier against future scratches, UV rays, and environmental contaminants, enhancing the longevity of the correction.

Can I apply ceramic coating after a level 2 correction?


Absolutely. If you're seeking even more long-term protection and a glass-like finish, you can opt for a ceramic coating after the level 2 correction. Our team can provide guidance on this option during the consultation.

How do I maintain my car's appearance after the correction?


Regular washing using the appropriate techniques and products, avoiding abrasive materials, and keeping your vehicle sheltered from harsh elements will help maintain the results of the level 2 paint correction.
