The Process

Our Final Touch Process

Our three-stage process covers cleaning the paint surface, removing rust, wax, and grease from within the paint chip. Through to colour matching for the vehicle and application of multiple layers of new paint, creating a smooth “blob-free” finish.

Step One

Prepare the paint surface to highest possible standard, cleaning the surface of all contaminants; tar, bee pollen, water spots, and other environmental pollution - allowing the surface to be cut and polished to a glass-like deep gloss look.

Step Two

We 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 (to reduce shrinkage through the drying process). This provides a durable, long lasting paint finish, protecting the damaged area and preserving the look and feel.

Step Three

Following a correct amount of drying time, the excess paint (overflow) is removed from the surface. We use a unique Formula; Formula 184/185 is 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 vital in lighter colours and metallic colours.

Airbrush or Pencil?

Final Touch has pioneered the airbrush paint chip repair system. Others use paint pens or brushes that leave an unsightly bulge.  Airbrushing, however gives a smooth, blended look – every time.

We spray colour matched paint into the paint chip in layers, allowing each coat to dry. We then smooth the finish back to match the existing OEM paint.
