Ultimate Shield sounds like a comic book character, and it could be—it heroically protects cars just as any decent superhuman would, fighting to keep vehicles beautiful at its headquarters. One of the Shield’s weapons is paint-protection film, a thermoplastic material originally tested by military personnel and prized by racecar drivers for its ability to preserve sponsor graphics. Like most versions on the market, Ultimate Shield’s is known as the clear bra, and is designed to safeguard automotive bodies against flying gravel, debris, and people who jaywalk with scissors. Bolstering Ultimate Shield’s powers are special sealants that help the paint job resist UV rays, sap, bugs, and acid rain, and render interior fabric and leather resistant to stains.
Ultimate Shield offers more than films and sealants, though—the shop’s crew can also detail motorcycles, cars, RVs, and boats. These cleaners attack grime with services ranging from basic washes and interior scrubdowns to a clay treatment for paint, which absorbs pollutants and other potentially corrosive elements. And once cars are clean, they can add a touch of customization by tinting windows, smoking taillights, adding dash accents, and painting brake calipers.
