Adelaide-based, automotive detailing specialist Elite Finish restores the condition of your car to its highest quality and finish, using internationally renowned products and the most efficient technologies known to automotive detailing. A combination of skill, experience and knowledge will ensure that your car receives the highest quality of professional care. Whether you are looking to increase your vehicle’s re-sale value with a pre-sale detail or have your vehicle prepared for a show and shine or just looking for new car presentation - Elite Finish will look after you.



Paint correction:

Paint correction involves the use of a variety of machine polishes. Ultimately, it removes paint defects from the car’s surface with various polishing compounds. Defects may include swirl marks, scratches, water spots, bird etchings and oxidisation.

Elite Finish understands that every car requires different levels of attention and care. Therefore, we have developed three levels of paint correction to suit the condition of your car. This includes 1) Light enhancement correction 2) A rejuvenation correction and 3) A full restoration detail. All three processes include an in-depth paint assessment, reading paint thickness levels and checking the condition of the paint followed by a deep clean of the car and a two stage paint decontamination. Time spent on machine polishing is dependent upon the level of correction detailed above. The paint is then cleaned from polishing oils and residue in preparation for a protective sealant or wax.

Paint protection

Elite Finish offers paint protection services that actually work, no gimmicks and no need to spend thousands of dollars through dealerships. We are an approved Opticoat professional/Opti-guard dealer. Opticoat professional is a permanent hard wearing ceramic clear coat with superior resistance to scratches (9H), chemical etching (which can be caused by certain cleaners) and harsh environmental elements (bird droppings, acid rain etc). The coating is 2 microns in thickness, which makes it almost 100x thicker than most commercial waxes and sealants. It is a permanent hydrophobic coating that resists water, dirt and grime so your car stays cleaner for longer.

Alternatively, we can offer a number of durable sealants or premium waxes to further protect your car’s paint making your car’s maintenance much simpler. Cars without this level of protection are at risk of further damage from brake dust, bird droppings, bugs and acid rain - which can settle on paint and quickly destroy the top coating. Our superior paint protection methods act as a barrier to the effects of various external elements and provide your car with added shine and depth.

Headlight restoration and coatings

Over time, headlights can succumb to oxidisation caused by UV damage, minerals found in the water particles and debris. Headlight restorations aim to return dull headlights back to their original condition. This will improve the quality of your headlights and the overall appearance of the car. To ensure that your car headlights remain clearer for longer a protective ceramic coating can be applied to the surface.

Maintaining you car’s interior is just as important as maintaining its exterior. Elite Finish also provides interior detailing services from a general clean to deep cleaning leather & conditioning as well as carpet extraction.

Is there a guide on what each of your services are worth? I know it all depends on the car and how bad it maybe but a ball park figure would be good.

Thanks Reuben, It has taken me a long time to finalise the name, logo and identification. It has all been word of mouth until now.

Here's my Facebook page I have recently put up.
