Final Touch SMART Repairs:

In the early 1990’s Final Touch set out with one purpose. To make ugly paint chip and scratch repairs a thing of the past. For the past 25 plus years we have invested and reinvested in finding better ways to achieve this goal. Utilising proprietary paints and Spray & Wipe Technology we’ve set a new bench mark in the S.M.A.R.T (small area repair technology) sector. Our process blends the repair with existing paint in manner which is by far the smoothest finest finish available for a chip repair. What’s more, our stone chip repair technology ensures that we cover a greater number of chips over your standard pencil touching. Sure there are some chips, mainly on edges, which still need to be penciled. However, once you have experienced our repair process you will wonder why you it was not done sooner.

It’s our dedication to making your vehicle gleam that sets us apart from any other option. Take a look though the galleries – you will see the same dedication applied to everyday vehicles along with your exotic and coveted vehicles.

In 2013 we updated our services to include headlight lens cover restoration with a 3 year warranty. Most options for lens restoration are limited to abrasives that ware back the dulled surface; however, this process does not provide any lasting protection. After almost a year of development and testing we have the only true way to correctly restore your headlight lens covers. The process is centred around fully removing the old coating and any yellowing of the lens; followed by application of a 2-3ml thick UV rated protective coating. Our results are really starting to gain acceptance and respect in the automotive industry.

HOW THE FINAL TOUCH THREE STAGE

Full Cut Polish and Stone Chip Repair Process Works

One.

Prepare the paint surface to highest achievable standard, cleaning the surface of all contaminants. Including, tar, bee pollen, water calcification spotting and other environmental pollution. This allows the surface to be cut polished and clarity finished to a glass like deep gloss look.

Two.

Carefully match a colour that provides a smooth blended look for each repaired stone chip. Spray the paint directly into the chip filling it from bottom to top – slightly over-flowing. The paint is applied in a manner that reduces shrinkage through the drying process, providing for a strong long lasting automotive paint grade finish, protecting the damaged area and preserving the look and feel.

Three.

Following a correct amount of drying time, the excess paint (overflow) is gently wiped back from the surface. This is achieved through the use of unique Formula. Formula 184/185 are what sets our system apart from others, designed to allow upper layers of paint to be removed without stripping the paint from the chip itself, the gentle formulation also ensures that the colour-match stays true which is particularly important in lighter colours and metallic paints. It also has the added benefit of a polishing action that actually enhances the gloss and finish of the original paint finish.

Have A Question, Say Hello!

What Types Of Repairs Can Be Done?

The Final Touch Small Area Repair Technology (S.M.A.R.T) repair process can deal with just about any car paint defect. The Final Touch process specialises in repairing stone chips. 

  1. Clean back the chip
  2. Colour match the paint
  3. Spray Paint into the chip (where feasible)
  4. Allow the paint to dry back

Other areas where the Final Touch guys shine are in paint reconditioning. Full cut polish and clarity refine, that gives a full mirror finish. 

  • Water Spot Removal
  • Corrective Cut Polish Clarity Refine
  • Paint Protection
  • Interior Protection
  • Interior Exterior Grooming and Detailing
What Brands & Equipment Do You Use?

Final Touch use the best products from Meguiar’s and Rupe’s. When Combined these brands provide exceptionally high levels of paint correction while protecting & preserving the clear coat. It’s important to note that many ‘groomer’ still use the older rotary style machines which easily burn the clear coat and leave holograms and swirls etched into the paint surface. 

In contrast, you will find the Final Touch guys are right up with the play on international detailing standards. What’s more, the Final Touch guys have there very own edge on the stone chip repair market, with their spray and wipe chip repair process.

Tip & Tricks For Maintaining That Shine

When cleaning a vehicle try to remove the heavier dirt items with a higher pressure wash. Follow this with a good emulsifying cleaner that releases the dirt form the paint surface. Minimising scratching. Wash top down, cleaning the wheels last with a specific brush. Always dry the vehicle back and never wash hot paint, as this risks etching in water spots.

Our recommendation is toi use a high quality sealant like DurSeal or OptiCoat Pro, to minimise the need for polishing and waxing. However, when polishing or waxing, ensure the paint surface is cool and vehicle is away form direct sunlight. Apply in uniform motion following manufacturers directions.

Often forgotten until it's really bad. Care of your vehicle glass is important for the long term value and overall feeling of ownership. If your glass has got water spots on it, it's possible we may be able to remove them. However, some glass is quite soft and very easily etched by water spots.
