HOW THE FINAL TOUCH THREE STAGE
Full Cut Polish and Stone Chip Repair Process Works
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.
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.
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.

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.
