From Small Beginnings

Our Story

In the late 1980s Gary Lowe, on a family holiday in California, was inspired when he saw a Mexican man repairing paint stone chips at a dealership with nothing more than a pot of paint and an airbrush. Although the process needed some refining it was effective. Gary quickly realised the market potential if you could touch up stone chips in the fraction of the time and cost compared to panel resprays.

Who knew that a chance encounter with a friendly Mexican while on holiday could change the way small to medium area repairs are done within the automotive industry?

A few years of research and experimentation the Final Touch system was developed. Since then we have developed the paint stone chip repair system further. Which has allowed us to work with major car dealerships in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Europe this has allowed us to work with world renown brands like Aston Martin UK. We have also become experts in paint restoration (detailing, cut and polish) whereby we are able to achieve a swirl free and mirror-like finish through using best industry methods as well as our unique special formulas.

Over the last 25 years through our processes, we are now known in the industry as the Vehicle Appearance Specialists. As part of continual improvement and a passion for the automotive market, we are involved with the ‘International Detailing Association (IDA)’ to promote the value of professional detailing services and to empower professionals at each stage in their career and help to develop a career path.

Final Touch Paint Repair Technology systems operate internationally under the SMARTCHIP, FINAL-TOUCH and MR DINGMAN brands.

Why Final Touch

From an environmental perspective, repair over respray makes good sense, while saving time and money. What’s more, repairing the paint stone chips protects the integrity of the OEM paint finish. Final Touch Paint Repair Technology systems allow for the most effective results, though a relatively simple process. Our Spray & Wipe System achieves remarkable results, even on quite heavily chipped paintwork.

Our ability to effectively spray new colour correct paint into the stone chips, while safely removing excess paint from the top of the panel sets us apart. Our colour correct paint stone chip repairs, include metallic and pearlescent colours.

Moreover, we work with the best-detailing products and practices for paint detailing, cutting and polishing. Allowing us to remove or significantly reduce swirl marks, scratches, faded paint, extensive marring holograms, water, and acid rain spots. We take into account what your budget and goals are.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations We can provide an obligation free quote through a quick talk to ascertain your needs. When then work to deliver a high-quality finish that will last for months and years to come. Our process and systems work and have been proven time and time again from your everyday driver to some of the most exclusive vehicles in the world. With such low impact on the environment, it’s easy to see why it’s the best available.
