Vehicle Enhancement Detail Liverpool Merseyside

With this package, we carry out a two stage machine polish of your vehicles paintwork, using the latest paint depth gauges and correction techniques combined with an array of machines to dramatically improve the vehicles paintwork, restore colour and boost gloss whilst removing minimal levels of the vehicles clear coat.  

We start the process with a full and comprehensive wheels off decontamination of the vehicle including a deep clean of the wheels, arches, brake callipers and engine bay.  Your vehicles paintwork is deep cleansed, clayed and moved inside the studio to have a full set of paint thickness readings taken.  Once we have an idea of what we are working with, we carry out a two stage machine polish of the paintwork with a view to remove up to as much as 85% of defects, including swirl marks, scratches, water spotting and etchings etc.


We start the polishing process with a heavy cutting compound.  This is tailored to your vehicles paint type and is designed to remove as many defects as possible without taking away too much of the vehicles clear coat.  Although this stage is key for the removal of defects, the finish to the paintwork is often left hazy and dull, therefore a second stage is required.  For the second stage of polishing we use a much less aggressive, finishing compound that is designed to then bring the gloss levels back to the paintwork and leave an extremely glossy finish ready for coatings.  We typically find that to our customers’ eyes, this level of correction is considered “perfect” and it takes a trained eye to then spot any remaining marks in the paintwork.   

Once the correction work is complete we move onto the protection stage. We offer multiple levels of paint protection depending on your requirements. Proudly being the only Gtechniq Accredited Detailer in Merseyside we are therefore able to offer you the class leading Crystal Serum Ultra.

Last but not least your vehicles interior is treated to the same level of care and attention.  All leather/ fabric seats are cleaned to the best of our ability along with mats, carpets and all other aspects of your vehicles interior.  We aim to deliver the same high quality finish to the vehicles interior as we do to the exterior and we have coating options for interior surfaces too.

As well as paint protection, we also offer high performance Gtechniq coatings for your wheels, brake callipers, trim, exhaust tips, glass and full interior packages again, depending on your requirements. Here are some of the coating options to choose from:

Crystal Serum Ultra is the best paint protection you can get, it keeps your car looking glossy and new, prolonging the life of your paintworks perfect finish. 10h paint protection, matchless levels of gloss, surface slickness, swirl and chemical resistance all combined with a 9 year guarantee against staining and discolouration is what gives this product its outstanding reputation and makes it a must have for your vehicles paintwork!

Key to Crystal Serum Ultras performance gain is the introduction of a revolutionary new 7nm nanoparticle alongside an existing 20nm nanoparticle and increasing the ratio of crosslinkers which reinforce and thicken the top layer of the coating.

The hard 10h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h paint protection coatings. Compared to standard ceramic paint coatings, Crystal Serum Ultra can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings.

An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and the hard top layer is that Crystal Serum Ultra is very resistant to extreme heat changes, even from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius.

CSU Black - For the Ultimate protection that Gtechniq has to offer, we recommend Crystal Serum Ultra Black (CSU Black). The class leading Crystal Serum Ultra, with two layers of EXOv4 as a top coat. Take all the properties of the already outstanding Crystal Serum Ultra and combine them with the added slickness and extreme hydrophobic properties of EXOv4 for mind blowing results! The finished product is the best we have to offer, leaving you with an extremely durable, slick and extremely glossy coating with outstanding swirl resistance, water/dirt repellency, chemical and UV resistance. You will not be disappointed!

Crystal Serum Light is the prosumer version of the world-famous Gtechniq Accredited Detailer Crystal Serum Ultra. It offers 80% of professional Serum Ultra’s performance, but if applied incorrectly can be machine polished from your vehicles paintwork.

When it comes to adding gloss, resisting swirls, contaminant and dirt repellency, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra and Serum Light are the pinnacle in paint protection. When applied by ourselves, Crystal Serum Light comes with a 5 year guarantee against staining and discolouration. 

CSL Black - For the ultimate in Crystal Serum Light based protection, we recommend a top coat of EXOv4. We refer to this combination as Crystal Serum Light Black (CSL Black). EXOv4 delivers a hard film that makes water-spots easy to remove, offers great resistance to all wash chemicals and can help withstand micro-marring. It produces a high-gloss, warm-looking, extreme hydrophobic finish. CSL Black leaves you with the incredible glossy finish of CSL but with the addition of the extreme hydrophobic properties of EXOv4.


As well as all exterior work carried out, while your vehicle is with us we also carry out a comprehensive cleanse of the interior with the option to protect all required surfaces.
