Does your vehicle not "shine up" like it used to?
Your car's life is a true horror story. Vehicles manufactured since the 1980s are all protected by an invisible layer of lacquer called clear coat. It faces on a daily basis, a relentless and brutal chemical process known as oxidation. Oxygen and water battle it out on the surface of your car paint, causing a slow breakdown of the clear, which takes the impact from everything the road and the environment throw at the paint. As a result, the Clear, scarred by a frontal attack from environmental contaminants, acidic bird droppings, bug spatter, acid rain, UV fading from the sun, rain, snow, wind, sand, and road rash, makes your car paint look dull. Add to that millions of fine, indiscernible scratches caused by bumping up against the car with jewelry, keys, bags, and even rough clothing, and that protective layer begins to dull the brilliance of the actual paint underneath.
Wax and paint sealants are short-term protectants, but time constraints and busy lifestyles make it hard to keep your vehicle regularly maintained. Without a rich coat of wax every 5 to 6 weeks or a sealant application every 90 days, it becomes vulnerable. If you rarely wash your vehicle, the damage can become more severe - neglected to the point in which most car owners believe the cloudiness is inevitable in an aging vehicle. Thinking it irreparable, most car owners see their only recourse is a respray (repaint), which can cost $4,000 to $6,000 or more - plus, it devalues your vehicle.
Before you give up on your vehicle ever having a rich, glossy shine again, let the paint correction specialists at Sticklers 4 Details get you a free estimate to "correct" the clear coat so your paint has a clean window through which it can shine - often better than it did when it was new. Better yet, we can save you thousands of dollars on a respray.
Don't try this at home.
Sticklers 4 Details technicians are Fort Collins' paint correction specialists. They are trained in the meticulous abrasive removal of a nano-layer of clear coat - 1/100th of the thickness of a sheet of paper - to remove those fine scratches and rough spots; and then buff it out to a brilliant shine that is often glossier than it was when you bought the car!
Paint correction can revive aging and neglected paint, and repair mars and oxidation that have built up on your vehicle in just the first couple of months after you buy the car. A softer version of paint correction with Clay Bar can also revive older, classic vehicles with single stage paint.
In fact, new cars are rarely as perfect as you may think. Car manufacturers now use robotic painters that often leave the paint uneven in many places. The dealership will wash her down and clean her up so she is shining when you take possession of the keys, but that new vehicle has been through the wringer before you took possession!
Transported via roadway or railway, perhaps left sitting in a storage facility for several weeks or months, and then manhandled at the dealership by service technicians, sales representatives, and numerous potential buyers before you took the keys, your new car shine is probably not what it could be! After what you pay for a new vehicle, shouldn't it look its very best?
Sticklers 4 Details offers a special new car prep package that includes a new car paint correction to level the paint and remove any and all contaminants that have built up on the surface while it sat on the lot.
Maintaining an existing vehicle or reviving an older model, Sticklers 4 Details paint correction is the perfect solution.
