Look at the finish on your car, if you see "orange peel" in the finish,
and you can not see yourself in it like a mirror, then it needs wetsanding.


A good show car finish is the result of a good wetsander!

By appointment only. We can pick up and deliver your car or work at your location if you provide electricity.

Paint polishing specialists - 20 years experience - Wet sand the "orange peel" away from a new or old car and get the wettest looking mirror finish. Besides looking flat and glossy like glass, it is also smooth to the touch like a baby's butt! If you put something on the hood it will just slide off.

It is a true art and a time consuming process, but you will get a very wet looking mirror-like shine. Minimize "orange peel", repair scratches and defects.  

Wetsanding prices ............................$600 to $1500 (depending on how much sanding) 
Also known as color sanding. We mask off edges and sand the paint with 1500 grit sand paper to remove "orange peel" on brand new or older cars. Scratches and water spots are repaired and any oxidation. We then machine polish with a cutting compound to remove the 1500 grit sanding scratches. After that we machine polish with ultra fine polish for a wet looking mirror finish. We then finish with a long lasting synthetic sealer and/or wax that is very smooth to the touch.

Some people say factory finishes do not have enough clear coat to sand and you will not have enough protection if you sand. If the lowest point of the clear coat is enough to protect the car then if you sand to that point and no further then you car will look its best and still be protected. The secret is to never sand any more than the lowest point of the clear coat. See illustration below:
orange peel

A car should be wet sanded once and once only. After the "orange peel" is gone it will never come back. If the paint gets "spider web" scratches from incorrect car washing, it can be polished away without ever sanding. Plus the clear coat on most cars is not thick enough for more sanding.

Many expensive cars like Bentleys, Lamborghinis, etc. are hand sanded and polished at the factory. GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, etc. do not wet sand the final clear coat because it is too much work. Now your new car can have a mirror finish also. Please call for a price quote on wet sanding. For example, a brand new red Corvette with factory "orange peel" will cost $900 to give it a mirror finish. (Your average detailer does not have the expertise for wet sanding paint). Prices subject to change depending on your car.

Call or email for quotes and scheduling. Thank you!

    I went to the LA Auto Show and was surprised at all the new cars that had scratches and "orange peel" in the paint. I took some photos of a few cars that looked decent to me. They usually sand prototypes but not production cars unless it is a very expensive car.
