  • Initial Wash: Starting with a comprehensive wash to remove loose dirt and surface impurities, preparing the vehicle for deeper cleaning.
  • Iron Removal: This step involves the use of specialized chemicals to dissolve and remove ferrous metal particles that have embedded themselves in the paint. Following the chemical treatment, a clay bar is often employed to gently pull out the finer particles and smooth out the surface, ensuring that it's impeccably clean and ready for further restoration work.
  • Paint Correction: Removing minor scratches and swirl marks through meticulous polishing, restoring the vehicle’s paint to its original, flawless condition.
  • Polishing: Enhancing the smoothness and shine of the paint, preparing the vehicle for the final protective coating.
  • Protective Coating Application: The final step involves applying advanced protective products like Undrdog Pro and Undrdog Pro Plus

These coatings safeguard against UV rays, chemical erosion, and physical abrasions, while adding a beautiful gloss that lasts.
