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.

They did an amazing job detailing my car , I am so happy 😃 it looks like new. Great work .
Robin and the team at auto Emporium did an absolute amazing job at detailing our car. The outside Had the rain rolling off it as if it was untouchable. The inside felt brand-new. The leather seats were conditioned. The floor mats were shampooed. The glass was cleaned inside and out. Every little surface that you could possibly see had been cleaned. That feeling of getting in and all the dog being gone was absolute bliss. We look after our car and clean it ourselves weekly but for it to have that extra detail Was well worth it. I would highly recommend Robin and the team for any car detailing Because I know we will definitely be coming back for an external coating soon!
Robin and the team absolutely blew it out of the park with this black-out on our X5 including new wheels and painted callipers. We had great communication at all times and their eye for detail was superb. If you're looking for someone to turn your car from bland to turning heads then Auto Emporium is the place to go.
I would only ever take my cars to Robin and the boys at Auto Emporium I had work done on the wheels of my Tesla last year and last week I took my Porsche Boxter GTS to them for a full detail. I must say the work done on both vehicles was amazing. They take so much pride in there work treating the cars as if they were there own. Best place!Without a doubt.
Really happy with the work these guys have done, great communication and they really looked after me
Robin and his team did an amazing job with blacking out the Navara. Couldn't be happier!

Robin did an amazing job on my Ranger Wildtrack. Literally came up looking like brand new. Very professional and easy to deal with, no surprises. Just a great job. Highly recommended!Cheers,Tim.
What a difference a day makes when you leave it in the hands of Robin and his team. Our new Kia looks even better than it was delivered to us. A first class ceramic coating & tinting that will keep the UV at bay. A pleasure to do business with. Highly recommended.
If you want to make your car your own, go and see Robin and the boys at Auto Emporium. It's a one stop shop, outstanding work, thanks
Fantastic service from Robin and the team! Very thorough and efficient. Scratch repair looks great
A combination of great tradesmen who know how to mix difficult paint mixes and apply the paint & blend it in so you can’t see where the repair was made. I hope I don’t have to use them again because of my careless driving but if I bugger up that is where I will go.
Grat to deal with, friendly, great workmanship. Great service and efficient. Highly recommended
Just had full body wrap removed and full detail to sell done. 100% happy with service, finished job and price. Robin and his team have made the vehicle look better then when I picked it up new!

Robin and his team did an awesome job painting and refurbing my 75 series. Easy to work with and their work is next level. Anyone looking for something a bit different that stands out and quality custom work, reach out to the team.
Awesome dealing with Robin. I wanted a White, black and bronze theme on my Y62. He and the boys did an absolutely fantastic job, I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. Wood grain and chrome delete, headlight and taillight tint, window tint, bronze highlights, ceramic paint coating, interior protection and painted brake callipers. Mad if you go anywhere else! Thanks Robin and the boys at Auto Emporium, super happy 👍
Robin & his team did an awesome job on my car. Within the first week of owning it, I took it to Robin as I trusted him & his team’s ability to completely transform my car. Removed emblems, blacked out others and recommended a pop of red for one & I could not be happier. Highly recommend Auto Emporium.

Thanks Robin and crew!!!Excellent work, good communication, recommended highlyCheers
Robin and his team were amazing to deal with! Not only did they do a premium job at a great price, their customer service was A+ from start to finish. So happy with my new wheels. Highly recommend!
This is my classic 1990 Jaguar V 12 5.3 litre 2 door coupe after paint rectification and detailing. I found Auto Emporium to be very informative about what is required for the car, communication was excellent a fair price, done on time and to budget. Give Robin a ring for your particular needs for your classics or your street car. I am sure he will help you out.I certainly will be booking in my cars in for detailing before car showsStuart Lomax
Great service and repairs. I had a dent in the cab of my 2021 f250. 2 other local panel shops didn’t want to repair it as the f250 is all aluminium and was all to hard.I called in on Wednesday and was told no worries and they repaired it the next week.Great service Great Repair the next week Great people Thank you.
The customer service from Robin and his team has been fantastic. These guys have an incredible eye for detail, I had my Range Rover overhauled and I couldn’t be happier with the result.
Best panel beater on the coast by far. Robin went the extra mile to get my car that was heavily damaged all fixed up and very fair pricing. Would recommend 100x over! Thanks Robin and the team!!
Highly recommended the team at Auto Emporium. Had my C63 wheels repaired and resprayed to factory with the addition of yellow brake callipers.As can be seen, the team lead by Robin did an awesome job and the wheels now look like they've just come new out of the factory.The team there is very professional and pride themselves on their work. Robin was great to deal with and their prices are very competitive.
Great service by a great team. Highly recommended if you’re in need of quality and easy service.
Robin has done a great job with my Patrol, exactly how I wanted it. Always great to have competent professionals locally at the coast.
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.
Response from the owner: Little bit of the truth would still have made for an interesting tale.The other things you "forgot" to mention where the hundreds of dollars of extras you received FREE.unfortunately 4 clips where left, or fell out...on a FULL respray i think we made the old falcon look better than new.Completely left out the fact we bare metaled the entire guard FREE of charge which wasn't in the original scope of work either.But you go on and feel "gutted" over the amazing paintjob you received Paul. You wouldn't have been happy even if we wore lingerie and made you dinner afterwards, because that's just the type of client you are.
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.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Shaun, hope had a great holiday for the remaining trip down here.Thanks for choosing auto emporium.
Highly reccomend auto emporium, yes you may pay more but its for quality. Robin was easy to deal with made suggestions to help you choose on what he thinks would look good if you havent already made your mind up on what look you want. My y62 now looks like it should coming out of the factory!
Response from the owner: Most welcome, thanks for choosing us to customize your y62 it turned out awesome.
Robin and the team went above and beyond in working to improve the look of my vehicle. I was extremely happy with the effort they put in. Talking to Robin his passion for cars was evident which reflected in his business as a whole. I highly recommend Auto Emporium to anyone who wants to improve the look of their vehicle.
Response from the owner: Always a pleasure to serve return customers, no doubt see you both again.
Robin and the boys did a fantastic job on the paint protection and badge removal! Highly recommend
