Paint Correction


aint correction is the mechanical leveling of clear coat or paint (clear coat is unpigmented paint, clear) to a point where all the paint is free of swirl marks and light scratches.

Ding King paint correction technicians will remove imperfections in your vehicle’s finish and restore it to like new condition. These imperfections include swirl marks, “spider webbing”, oxidation, automated carwash scratches, water spots & bird dropping etching.

Our process involves a thorough wash wash using a clay bar to remove contaminants. Once complete we use a variety of proprietary chemicals and equipment to restore your vehicles paint. Once your paint has been re-leveled, your scratches and swirl marks are gone for good!

Paint correction is much more than than just detailing your car. It’s the process of correcting paint to like new condition, resulting in a shine and gloss you can only dream of. It’s kind of like having a new paint job without having your vehicle re-painted.

The before and after image to the right is an actual example of what you should expect your car to look like.

Paint correction is an art and should only be performed by a highly trained paint correction specialist. The paint correction process is to attemptto get the painted surface of your vehicle as defect free as we can, while creating tremendous amount of shine, gloss, and depth. The overall paint correction process and the final results will depend upon the condition of the paint we are working on, and the amount of paint we have to work with.  We specialize in the correction of many types of paint to include acrylics, lacquers, enamels, resigns, single stage paint, OEM paint, custom paint and much more.

There are many, many variables when it comes to the paint correction process, and it can be very risky for both the customer and the technician doing the work. Because of all the different types of paint, painting techniques and the amount of paint used will determine the final results. There is “No Way” to ever remove 100% of the paintdefects, especially pre-owned vehicles where the technician nor the customer knows anything about the history of the paint, how many times its already been buffed or polished and how much paint there is to work with.

We specialize in two types of paint correction techniques:

  1. Paint cutting: This is where we are cutting away the paint to get to the bottom of the paint defects we are trying to correct. This means we are removing and thinning the paint to get the result we are looking for.
  2. Paint manipulation: This is where we are creating a bit of heat with our paint correction techniques and helping the paint level itself our without further cutting of the paint.
