Paint Corrections

Auto Emporium is one of the Sunshine Coast leading paint correction specialists.We pride ourselves in bringing your dull faded or oxidised paint back to life.

Our team has the experience & knowledge utilising only the latest technology polishers, polishes and sealants to restore that showroom lustre that will last in the harsh Queensland sun.

What is a Paint Correction?

At auto emporium we offer a wide variety of services from a general cut & polish to full paint corrections.
these are two seperate services entirely.

The difference between a cut & polish to a full paint correction is the entire process. A cut and polish will include our staff cutting your paint back with a machine polisher using quality polish to restore the shine of your paintwork, where as a paint correction is far more in depth and will involve carefully colour sanding to paint back with blocks achieving a smooth and fresh paint service to then restore in a 3 stage correction and finished off with a high quality sealant achieving a mirror like showroom shine.

A paint correction can often achieve results resembling a fresh respray. At Auto Emporium we have partnered with 3M using their industry leading and one of the most trusted brands on the planet, finest abrasives pads, polishes and refinishing applicators. This gives our customers the highest quality finish, protection, longevity and durability from harmful UV rays.

A full paint correction isn’t for every car, careful preparation is made on all vehicles from classic cars, to brand new high end luxury or simply cars you cannot put a price on.

We start with measuring the paint depth all round your vehicle carefully noting all varied thickness throughout the bodywork to ensure we don’t remove to much material when we commence the wet sanding process.

This is where the skills of our technicians truly shine, as we are a dedicated bodyshop not only a detailing shop our tradesman understand your paint better than anyone. we not only correct paint we apply it too, offering a new dimension of knowledge simply unmatched by dedicated detail only shops. Once the damaged paintwork is removed & perfectly flat, we commence the cutting process. This does not mean harsh compounds or pads need to be used, we gauge each job as required since no two cars are alike. Japanese vehicles require a slower more delicate cut opposed to European vehicles which have a harder ceramic lear coat finish.

Highly recommended if you’re in need of quality and easy service.Pavel ErokhinPavel Erokhin ★★★★★ Robin has done a great job with my Patrol, exactly how I wanted it. Always great to have competent professionals locally at the coast.Paul TencatePaul Tencate ★☆☆☆☆ Told 4 weeks & $10k for a complete outside paint job. Quoted $600 for brake calliper painting. 11 weeks later charged me $800 for brake calliper painting because price as gone up. Had the car been completed when they said it would be ready, would the price had gone up. Fuel tank was bone dry. Running on vapours. But I dropped it off with 3/4 tank. Mind you every complaint I made to them they told me they were professional. Like Why 4wks took 11wks. Why the car hadn't been touched within the first 4 wks.Had some dramas in the shop. Yep constantly told by them they were professional. Well, I finally go to pick my baby up. I gave them an extra day seeing as their track record was it was never ready when it was supposed to be. Low & behold they've just started washing it and gotta put the plates back on. Other than that it's now ready for me to take home. Ha, after stopping to get fuel, which he claims is only $20 not the $120 it cost me, I notice noises coming from the front of the car. Get home all the under panels are coming off. Plugs missing, not put in properly. 1 tailight, 1 brakelight opposite side to tailight, 1 reverse light, 1 headlight, 1 parking light front opposite to headlight all not working. But they're professional remember. Next day I take the car down to get new tyres put on, I get called out by the tyre fitter to show me the side skirts weren't on properly & could fall off at any time. How I got home with them still hanging there is a mystery. When I phoned the professional to complain, he did say to bring it back & he would fix any problem. But my problem is these professionals had the car for 11 wks and they didn't put it back together properly. Broke parts and said it was the cars age. But they're professionals. Also broke my car door lock and said they'd replace it with a lock & key from the wreckers. 1 key to unlock & 1 to start it. But they did say i had keyless entry. Such professionals. So would you let them touch your car. There's more they did wrong , but I won't go into that. I think you get the idea how professional they are. Especially when it's your pride and joy. I've been left gutted.Shaun TaylorShaun Taylor ★★★★★ I'm stoked with the results of my Chrome delete, tint and other modifications done by Auto Emporium!Quality work at a great price, thanks guys.Elizabeth PurdomElizabeth Purdom ★★★★★ Highly reccomend auto emporium, yes you may pay more but its for quality.
