At Elliot Remington we have one standard, the Elliot Remington standard for excellence.
We believe proper paint care can provide automotive owners with many years of shine and lustre, enhancing the appearance of any vehicle while protecting it from harsh road and environmental contaminants. Using our three-step method, we combine the best products, technical application, and knowledge to all of our detailing services. Clean, Protect, Restore (CPR) establishes the foundation for the Elliot Remington appearance program.
Step 1 to proper paint care begins with removal of harmful road grime and dirt which may have collected through daily use or while in storage. This is far from your average “car wash”.

Often overlooked, leather is a supple and absorbent natural material. Dust, dirt, and oils become trapped in the fibers creating noticeable blemishes. We use all natural, oil-free cleaners and conditioners to return your leather back to a refined finish.
A must for vehicles requiring paint correction and a key step in long-term paint preservation. The vehicle is hand washed using Australian lambswool wash mitts before applying a clay treatment, producing a smooth and glass-like surface. Harmful environmental and road contaminants are removed chemically and the vehicle is prepared for wax or restorative services.
Treat your vehicle’s engine bay to some much-deserved love. We carefully protect electronics before steam cleaning the surfaces. Boar Hairbrushes and natural cleaners remove grease, grime, and oil.
Wheel Removal and Decontamination
Automotive enthusiasts love their wheels. But not as much as we do! The vehicle is lifted and all four wheels are removed. We thoroughly clean the wheels, removing iron fallout and leaving a brilliant shine.
Step 2: Protect
Step 2 introduces conditioners, sealants, waxes, and ceramic coatings designed to protect against harmful road conditions and environmental fallout.
Commercially speaking, Carnauba Wax is the most commonly used automotive wax. Derived from Brazilian palms, its natural coating is used by the plant to improve hydration, protection, and control evaporation. Carnauba Wax produces a deep glossy finish perfect for the automotive industry.
Often combined with a natural wax, sealants provide long lasting durability and protection. Used on their own, they do not provide the depth of gloss and shine as a wax yet will require less maintenance over time. For best results combine a synthetic sealant with a Carnauba wax.
Over time, the natural fibers of leather break down and dry out, causing discoloration, creasing, and even cracking. Due to our strong southern sun and high summer temperatures, both oxidation and chemical damage occur at faster rates than other areas of the country. Conditioning your vehicles leather protects against these environmental and chemical factors prolonging its life and maintaining a supple feel.
Ceramic Pro® Coating
Ceramic Pro is a multi-layerable, clear, liquid nano-ceramic coating. When cured, this technology will transform itself on the surface to a permanent, durable yet flexible glass shield. This new glass shield prevents minor scratches to your clear coat and acts as a sacrificial layer. This preserves the original factory paint.
Paint Protection Film
Car Paint Protection Film is the most comprehensive form of defense you can establish between your car and all that can damage your car’s appearance. Because of Paint Protection Film’s high impact resistance, its application will protect your paint from chips and scratches caused by rocks and road debris.
Step 3: Restore
The Restore stage is considered an emergency procedure. When paint is neglected from the Clean & Protect steps, harsh contaminants etch, mar, and scratch paint leaving it dull and unsightly. Performed correctly, the Restore stage can breathe much needed life into oxidized and defected paint.
Involves shaving a very fine layer of clear coat or paint from the vehicle. This “levels” the paint leaving it defect free. Please contact us to schedule an inspection of your car’s paint as paint correction often times requires multiple steps and cannot be quoted without seeing its current condition.
On our Lowcountry roads, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the inevitable paint chip. Rocks, rogue shopping carts, and tight parking spaces can cause deep scratches that cannot be removed by paint correction.
Paintless Dent Removal
Remove unsightly dings and dents without compromising the factory finish of your paint. Please schedule an inspection to receive a quote for your vehicle.
Sun exposure, traffic conditions, salt air, and time can make your headlights hazy, reducing the effectiveness of your lights creating potentially dangerous night driving conditions. Headlamp restoration is also a quick way to return your car back to like-new condition.
Just like the headlights, the exterior trim becomes oxidized and faded. We can bring these back to a subtle sheen.
