de·tail·ingnoun: The act or process of meticulously cleaning, refining, and refurbishing an automobile.
Whether you need just a maintenance clean, a convertible fabric roof restored, full paint correction, or you're looking to protect your new car purchase, we've split everything up into easy sections to browse. All our details are unique, so these are just a guide which we can tailor to your individual requirements.
Maintenance Our entry level car care keeps your vehicle looking superb, whilst saving you precious weekend time. With options varying dependant on the vehicle and requirements, the wash typically includes a snow foam pre-wash, crevice detail cleaning, two bucket hand wash, wheel and arch cleaning, exterior glass, soft towel dry, and sealant application. Maintenance washes are best appreciated as ongoing care following our enhance detailing packages, to preserve the high level of finish on these vehicles once they leave our studio.
Detox A deep clean, ideal for cars which have suffered from a less-than-strict cleaning regime in the past. Our detox program focuses on complete decontamination of your paintwork, and tackling areas a regular wash just doesn't allow for. This can involve anything from a light clay-cleansing of the paintwork and tar spot removal, to alloy wheel removal and deep cleaning, all decided between you and our detailers.
Enhance Swirl marks and light scratches are inevitable on paintwork, this level of care aims to remove the day to day spider webbing scratches and oxidisation which exaggerates them, bringing your paintwork up to a high gloss with a single stage polish, before locking in the finish with a choice of natural or polymer sealant options.
Correct Correction polishing aims to take your paintwork back to showroom condition or better, typically removing ~99% of correctable surface scratches and leaving your paintwork looking as good as the day it left the factory. Time-scales vary for this according to the level of damage, so we will only quote upon inspection.
Vintage Our Vintage detail is perfect for classic vehicles in need of attention, but without losing the patina quality which makes them a classic. Whilst some may strive for automotive perfection and the flawless finish which can be achieved from a correction detail, for others a car's history is more important, and the preservation of a hard-won patina is more complex than just making a car shiny. It is still paramount to achieve a very high standard of cleanliness however, as dirt attracts damp which will lead to corrosion. With this in mind we have a range of techniques to coax the best possible from your vintage motorcar, whilst keeping the original aesthetic of an aged classic paramount above all else.
Signature Our Signature detail brings us to the pinnacle. Wet sanding to remove OEM orange peel, project managing restoration work, anything needed to achieve your requirements is undertaken under this banner. During a meeting, post inspection, we will run through all options available to your project, building a portfolio of work to be undertaken and addressing each and every angle of the vehicle to result in a concours d'elegance worthy finished product.

Long term paint protection can help maintain your vehicle's value, keeping it looking cleaner for longer in between washes, and easier to maintain when you do come to clean. our protection options range from medium term polymer coatings to help water speed off the surface taking dirt with it, to nano ceramic, crystal lacquer sealants to protect the paintwork from abrasion, marring and UV damage. The key to application of these is in the preparation which will be needed to be assessed on an individual basis, so get in touch to discuss our available options and we'll recommend the best solution for your needs. see our main new car protection page for further information.
