An intense cleanse of the vehicle is performed to remove any contamination and then a single stage machine polish using a light refinishing polish is performed to correct minor defects such as light swirl marks.  Deeper imperfections will remain but the detail will significantly improve the overall appearance of the vehicle giving it a glossy finish and more vibrant colour depth.
