Paint Chip Repair

Final Touch SMART Repairs:

REPAIR

Restore that new car feeling:

It’s our ‘Spray and Wipe’ Automotive Paint Stone Chip Repair Process that really sets us apart. The S.M.A.R.T (Small Area Repair Technology) ‘Final Touch’ process is unique in its ability of achieving an exceptionally smooth 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.

It’s easy to see how 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 which continues to stand out against all others. The process is NOT a coloured polish system or ink. We replace the missing paint with carefully matched automotive grade paint providing a lasting, blended smooth look. Disguising the appearance of chips, while preserving your vehicles look and value.

The Final Touch process can make an excellent gift idea for anyone you know who would enjoy their vehicle looking its best.

HOW THE FINAL TOUCH

Full Cut Polish and Paint 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 and polished to a glass like deep gloss look. Your Final Touch operator can provide the highest of quality exterior detailing and vehicle grooming.

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 excess layers of paint to be removed without stripping the paint from around the chip, the gentle formulation also ensures that the colour-match stays true which is particularly important in lighter colours and metallic paints. With the added benefit of a polishing action enhancing the gloss and finish of the original paint finish.

Have a Question?

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
  5. Remove excess paint with their unique Formula 184 

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.
