Cut and polish – how we can transform your car’s paintwork
Over time, direct sunlight, dirt, road grime, and other elements can damage your car’s paintwork. This can cause swirl marks, light scratches, etching and other paint defects to appear on your car, compromising its look and value. If left untreated, these paint defects will only worsen, turning your once-gloss paintwork dull and lifeless.
Sidepost’s cut and polish professionals use specialised cutting and polishing compounds to remove these imperfections. Our expert’s carefully remove your car’s extremely fine layer of clear coat to level out the paint surface, before polishing it to a high gloss finish. And as an added measure, we can also apply either a graphene or ceramic coating to your car for added protection and shine.
Why book a cut and polish with Sidepost?
Defects are certainly unflattering, especially on darker coloured cars where scratches and other damage is more visible. But more than just being an eyesore, these paint defects can actually devalue your car.
A good quality cut and polish can remove up to 95% of all paint defects, if not more, giving back your car’s showroom shine. However, it’s important to note that not all cuts and polishes are created equal. The wrong products and techniques can actually do more harm than good to your car’s paintwork.

Sidepost's cut and polish process
Hand washing your car
Before our cut and polish service can begin, we first remove all buildup of dirt, grime , and tree sap from your car’s surface. This ensures that dirt doesn’t contaminate our polishing pads and create more scratches on your paintwork. Our professionals will first wash your car by hand using a biodegradable ph neutral shampoo.
Claying your car's surface
Clay bar treatment works to get rid of all bonded contaminants, such as brake dust, iron, and industrial fallout from your paintwork. Claying goes beyond your standard car wash and ensures we have a smooth surface for the cutting and polishing process.
Every car is unique, coming in different colours and paint types. Thus, we take care to select the specific cutting compound that will work best for your car. We choose the correct combination of buffing pad and cutting compound to remove all swirl marks, fine scratches, and other paint blemishes.
Cutting and polishing
After the cutting compound has been applied on our buffing pad, we’ll start the machine and begin polishing your car’s surface. The abrasive action of the cutting compound breaks down the paint defects, while the polishing pads smooth out the surface. You will then see an immediate difference in your car’s paintwork, with a renewed level of shine.
Ceramic coating or graphene coating (optional)
Part of our detailing service is paint protection. If you require it, we can apply either a ceramic or graphene coating to your car’s surface. Your paint will then have added protection against UV rays, grime, bird droppings, tree sap and anything else that causes external paint damage.
