In the early 1990s 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 benchmark in the S.M.A.R.T (small area repair technology) sector.
Paint chip repairs
It’s our ‘Spray and Wipe’ Automotive Paint Stone Chip Repair Process that really sets us apart. The ‘Final Touch’ process is unique in its ability to achieve an exceptionally smooth paint chip repair. What’s more, it has been setting the benchmark for the S.M.A.R.T Paint repair industry in New Zealand since 1993.
This process of airbrushing paint into the chip greatly enhances the vehicle’s appearance. With over 25 years of continued system development Final Touch has developed an unparalleled yet simple process that has stood the test of time. The process is NOT a coloured polish system or ink. We replace the missing paint with carefully matched automotive grade paint providing a blended smooth look. Disguising the appearance of chips, while enhancing the look and value.
The Final Touch process can make an average vehicle exceptional and SOLD significantly quicker.

Our Point Of Difference
Airbrushed Paint Chip Repairs
Our process blends the repair with existing paint in a 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 pencil touched. However, once you have experienced our repair process you will wonder why 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 through 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 centered 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.

Have A Question?
When a car is, incorrectly, cleaned the dirt is clumped together and dragged along the paint surface. Brushed cash-wash machines are very good at damaging your vehicles clear coat, leaving many deep swirl lines and scratches in the paint surface. Continuous washing...
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 from 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. For a deeper clean consider clay baring the paint surface.
Our recommendation is to 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 the vehicle is away from 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.
