For auto detailing in the GTA, Cavalli Stables are your experts for paint correction and polishing. Polishing removes swirls and scratches from your car’s surface. As opposed to wax which will mask and make your vehicle look good for a few weeks or until you wash the car a couple of times, you will begin to notice that the swirl marks are back.
What polishing does is safely removes a very thin layer of clear coat. Of course, certain scratches might not be able to come out, depending on how deep the swirls and scratches are. In these cases, wet sand is needed first, and then a polish. For auto detailing in the GTA, especially car paint correction, polishing will get your paint perfectly flat and smooth. Once polished, sealing the paint and clear coat is a must. Cavalli Stables offers a variety of additional protections including; wax, sealants, and ceramic coating. Particularly with ceramic coating, we will give your car the best shine, protection, and resistance it has ever had, with years of warrantied protection.
Sometimes it is hard to tell if there are any swirl marks or scratches on your car… until you look at your car in the right light or sun and you see what appears to look like spider webs all over the surface. These scratches and swirl marks can occur from normal wiping, going through a touch car wash, using a snow brush in the winter, or even improperly washing/drying. These often leave very fine scratches in your car’s clear coat. Paint correction and polishing means correcting the surfaces paint and bringing your car that like-glass swirl-free finish.
Environmental factors may also play a part in these imperfections to your car and may result in needing paint correction. It’s possible to get water spotting from acid rain, hard water spots, salt, sap, or bird droppings. Minerals from the northern Toronto area will start to agitate the clear coat. Simply washing the car, or clay barring it won’t remove the spots, which is why polishing and paint correction are necessary.
The difference between polishing and waxing is that polishing permanently removes swirls and scratches, while waxing hides them. A glaze wax is used to hide those scratches for a short amount of time until you wash the car a few times and the same swirls and scratches start to appear again.
Ceramic coating takes this to another level. Our System X Ceramic Coatings are 1600% harder than traditional waxes and are 9H+ hard. (For reference, glass is about 5H, and diamond is the hardest at 10H). In coatings, the higher SiO2 (silicon dioxide) content, the better the coating is. The higher the percentage of the ceramic in the coating, the better the coating is and works. System X Ceramic Coating performs better in all of these aspects than Ceramic Pro.
Our process is to start by washing and using a clay bar to remove all the debris and contamination. Then, we move to the desired level of paint correction and polishing to get the best possible base for coating. If multiple stages are needed to remove swirl marks and scratches, we complete however many needed before installing the ceramic coating. Our ceramic coating packages start at 3-year protection, going all the way to lifetime warranty protection.

Cavalli Stables goes above and beyond to be the best auto detailing in Toronto, Mississauga and the GTA. One of the ways we do this is by checking the polishing and paint correction in natural light. Many other auto detailing companies tend to skip this final step and leave cars with “holograms” or a “haze”. Cavalli Stables is constantly fixing cars from dealerships around Mississauga and the GTA where this essential final step has been skipped.
The polishing process can go from 5 to 12 hours depending on the vehicle and on the clear coat. With ceramic coating, the process takes a whole day. The time it takes all depends on the size of the vehicle, the amount of polishing and stages it takes, or what the desired finish is. Whether you’re just looking to bring back the old shine of the car, or if you want a show car finish, all of these will influence the time process.
While it can be very time-consuming, it’s something that once completed, brings a smile to every car owner. This is one of the reasons why Cavalli Stables is the best choice for polishing, paint protection, and ceramic coating in Toronto, Mississauga, and the GTA.
To make a car’s finish look great, there can be a couple of things that can be performed. Both buffing and polishing will allow you to take away or remove a number of defects such as scratches, etching and oxidation. It will boost the shine and will prepare it for protection. When buffing a vehicle, there are a variety of pads that must be utilized. However, these can sometimes leave damage to a car, that no matter how small they are, sometimes may be beyond repair.
High-quality machine polishers are made to eliminate the minor, microscopic flaws in the painted exterior, and will not ruin the paint quality when used correctly.
High-quality polishes generate a wet-looking and deep shine when used with the correct pad and polisher. Every polish is precisely intended for a certain purpose. While considering a polish and a buffer you should first think about the type of finish and shine you would like as an outcome. You should also take into consideration the technical aspects such as paint hardness, condition, and thickness.
Depending on a number of factors (mentioned below), the process and the results will differ from one vehicle to the other.
For example, vehicles that have been wet sanded will require a multi-step process including polishing, using different types of pads and several types of polishing.
Often, several stages of polishing are required to achieve a high-quality finish and full correction. The first being the most abrasive and the last being a very fine polish finish.
