single stage paint correction

Morning folks. can anyone give a little advise please. what is good and availible on the market in the way of single stage correction. on all the cars i have done ive always used autobrite correct-it range and i am more than satisfied with the results and so are the car owners but i prefer using that system in the summer months so i can take my time and do the best job i can but now the winter is here and losing daylight quite quick. i spent 8hrs yesterday doing a 3 stage and wax and it tbf was hard going and i found i couldnt give each stage the time i would like. so what would you recommend.
cheers Gaz

8 hours for a 3 stage correction....
With regards to a cutting compound that finishes down well there are some who love detailing kingdom 1.1 my choice is Koch chemie hc8 but its horses for courses. But these at some point will still need a degree of refining however large or small.

Agree with this, I used this a few months back on a seat IBIZA it had its paint corrected in 2015 and had only very light marring from washing but the sonax Profiline perfect finish did an excelent job on refining the paint.

It dident remove 100% of the marring so at certain angles in certain light if looking very hard their were still some visible spider webbing but I was very happy with the result. I thing a firmer pad would have give me near %100 correction

How about Menzerna 3in1? It’s great stuff, has the same amount of cut as Menzerna 2500.

Three stages in 8 hours is pretty good going.


My go to single stage at the moment is Sonax 04-06 and a Rupes yellow pad.

There is no such thing as a single stage correction, just an enhancement.

I personally enjoy diminishing products for this job so I don't have to push my luck with my pad choice and worry about marring. And I will send longer than 8 hours on that single stage (including the wash and decon stages of course).

Efficiency and speed are not the same thing

Hi Gaz... As Matt says above.... I know how long it takes me to compound then polish a car...... Then I'll apply glaze by machine then cleanse then wax.... Takes me a while now... Especially if its a correction. Ie removing as many imperfections, swirls RDS as possible... Some of that because I'm not a spring chicken anymore lol, but normally to do a full correction is not a quick job for anyone, there's a hell of a lot of work to it.
