custom paint correction
Paint correction can
remove and minimize
The elements, bird droppings, dust and even improper washing techniques lead to the deterioration of your paint’s clean, reflective finish. Even with the most pristinely cared for vehicles, dust, dirt, and other contaminants build up on the paint’s surface acting like sandpaper against the clearcoat. Bulldog Detail specializes in the elimination of surface imperfections such as swirl marks, hologramming, buffer trails, fine scratches, etching, hardwater buildup, and isolated deep scratches which dull, oxidize, and haze the surface overtime.

Water Spot Removal
Arizona has some of the highest levels of calcium and magnesium bicarbonates in the country. You can expect to experience a range of 7-10.5 grains per gallon depending on your location. These minerals can penetrate and/orbond to your vehicle’s clearcoat and, over time, eat into it causing scarring and pitting on the surface. If not addressed, water will continue to pool in these indentations, repeatedly etching the same spot leading to premature clear coat failure and overall accelerated degradation of your paint

Depending on the quality and thickness of the clear coat, this service may not be available for all vehicles.
Paint Touch Up
Level out surface of the clear coat and apply color-matched paint to isolated deep scratches and rock chips. Then, using a thinning agent, smooth the surface of the corrected area until level with the rest of the clear coat. This process is repeated until full touch up is achieved. Touch up spots will blend with the car at a rate of approximately 85% accuracy, drastically minimizing the appearance of the imperfections.
