One of the greatest imperfections with a new vehicle is a bad paint finish, otherwise known as orange peel. Orange peel is the name given to a slightly rippled effect on the paintwork. When a vehicle is sprayed at the factory, the build up of multiple wet layers of paint combined with the spray guns pushing out a lot of air, cause the airstream to leave a visible rippled effect finish.
The way to remove this orange peel effect is by wetsanding and machine polishing. There are 4 grades of abrasive paper used (1500, 2000, 2500 and 3000 grit) to remove orange peel and create the ultimate finish. Each stage of abrasive paper removes a very fine layer of paint (the higher the grit, the finer the layer removal), meaning your paintwork becomes perfectly smooth and flat. Once the wetsanding had been done, the machine polishing can begin. This process will refine your paintwork to a 'better than new' finish.
