Fallout is paint damage from acidic rain, airborne over spray, and metallic fallout.

Acid rain is from chemical pollutants in the air, that form in clouds and is rained down. Acid rain can burn itself into the paint. More commonly acid rain evaporates and leaves residue of chemicals that are burned into the paint from the sun.

Airborne over spray can be paint, bird droppings, tree sap, concrete sealers (such as from construction), pesticides, liquid waste from manufacturing plants, or anything else that is airborne.

Metallic fallout can be from brake dust from your car and the cars around, under burned ash from factories, from foundries, or any other metallic airborne or air traveling substance. What happens with metallic fallout is that for one it is pretty abrasive so it will stick to paint well. These metallic particles also begin to rust which can cause further damage.

A ceramic coating is a coating of clear protection applied to paint. Clear coat on vehicles is soft plastic, a ceramic coating is a hardened coat of armor to protect the clear coat. Ceramic coatings usually last up to a year. You can ceramic coat almost anything, we have ceramic coated mobile phones before!

It is a misconception that waxing will remove scratches. A wax is just a protective coating applied in the last step of a full detail. Usually a wax will also make paint glossier. A wax has no polishing particles so no scratch removal will occur. A sealant is also a last step coat like wax. Wax or sealant can be replaced with one another. A sealant tends to last longer.

Compound is used to remove deep scratches in paint and will need to be followed up with a polish. A compound essentially makes scratches to get out scratches, in other terms it removes some of the surrounding clear coat. Compound will level out the clear coat around a deep scratch. It is recommended to use compound sparingly.

Polish is used to polish out finer scratches such as left from a compound job, or from general paint wear. A polish will smooth out the paint making it reflect light correctly. A wax or sealant coat is usually accompanied after a polish.

Before any polish job can take place, contaminates such as hard water spots, tar, fallout, embedded dirt and grime, etc. must be removed from the paint. We do not want these contaminates to be “polished” into the paint. A clay bar, or in our case a clay mitt is ran over the paint to pull out these contaminates. With a clean paint surface, paint correction or a polish can occur.

We only do scrape and paint repair. Structural damage such as a crack or a bend will require repair machines we do not have at this time.

Yes! We go a couple steps further and eliminate odor and bacteria left by biological contaminates left by food or drink spills.

We bring back life and clarity to plastic headlight housings. We not only get rid of the yellowing that happens over time,  we remove scratches in the process. This leaves a finished headlight housing that looks new.
