ABOUT CHIMERA AUTOMOTIVE
Who Are We?
Chimera Detailing is the Midlands most exclusive detailing and paint protection film specialist, handling an array of cars ranging from everyday, high-performance and supercars.
Our state of the art facilities house some of the most skilled detailers and paint protection film installers in the UK. This environment allows us to offer our clients the highest possible quality.
Chimera Automotive was founded in order to re-educate how car owners should maintain the appearance of their vehicles, to change the very perception of car presentation allowing unimaginable results owing to our luxury car care.
SIMPLY THE BEST.
HOW LONG DOES THE PAINT PROTECTION FILM PROCESS TAKE?The full PPF process takes around 5-6 working days, this includes preparing the car, paint correction, PPF application, curing and checking.
HOW DO I WASH MY CAR AFTER PAINT PROTECTION FILM APPLICATION?Any soap is fine to wash your car with, but we would recommend hand wash only. Washing your car in an automatic car wash or ‘waterless’ washing could result in your car being washed with dirty cloths and therefore cause damage to the PPF and it’s self healing layer.
IS THERE ANY MAINTENANCE SERVICING NEEDED FOR MY PAINT PROTECTION FILM?We ask our clients to come back after 1 month for a check up after PPF application to check curing has properly taken place. After this time, there is no need for a yearly check up/maintenance etc but if you have any concerns with your PPF we are always happy to check it out.
CAN YOU APPLY CERAMIC COATING TO PAINT PROTECTION FILM?Yes! In fact most of our clients opt for this as it really helps give a hydrophobic effect for easier cleaning. We also offer ceramic coating for interior, glass and rims.
WHY DOES MY CAR NEED PAINT CORRECTION WHEN IT IS BRAND NEW FROM A DEALERSHIP?Even if a car is brand new and straight from a dealership there will be some small scratches/swirl marks present on the paint.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO DETAIL MY CAR?This depends firstly on your car and a number of factors such as the existing condition of your paintwork - we can give you more of an idea of this when you bring your car into our studio.
HOW IS PAINT PROTECTION FILM APPLIED TO MY CAR?We use a CNC-cutting technology meaning there is no need to remove any badges or panels on your car.
