Detailing cars since the age of 15, Cameron Ford, owner of Polished Image, has spent the bulk of his life in the field of auto detailing. His years of vanquishing dust, debris, and grit from all manner of vehicles has elevated his standard of what a truly clean vehicle should look, smell, and feel like. Since 1986, Cameron and his team have worked to uphold this high standard at Polished Image, even as the detail and repair shop spread to new locations and expanded its menu of services to include windshield replacement, fixing chipped paint, and removing custard pie stains caused from cutting off clown cars.
The automotive aestheticians at Clark Executive Detail consider the business day spa for cars. Only instead of facials and massages, the team doles out pampering hand washes before coating cars with wax and polish, rendering paintjobs with the radiant twinkle of a light bulb’s earrings. Owners can also stow rides inside heated, 15,000 square feet storage space, where their investments rest easy inside a dust- and pest-free garage guarded under 24-hour camera surveillance.
The touch-free Water Wizard and soft-wash Sparklesoft units at Utah Auto Spa dole out Ultimate washes with automated technology and vehicle-vivifying products in roughly eight minutes. For the car that prefers a gentle touch, the Sparklesoft carefully whisks away dirt and road debris with soft brushes. Alternatively, brush-sensitive autos can enjoy the no-touch Water Wizard, which employs only water pressure to remove gunk, beginning with a thorough undercarriage wash that whisks away mud, grime, and hook-handed hitchhikers from the car's nether regions. Donning the guise of a good cop, a double-pass hot presoak wears away at filth's defenses, before a bad-cop pressure rinse takes a more direct approach. Wheels and tires are blasted or scrubbed by an automated rocker panel. Then triple-foam conditioner and clear-coat protectant smooth away wrinkles from the car's road-weary skin, and LustraShield hot wax creates a surface gloss that clearly reflects the jealous, open-mouthed stares of other cars on the road. Vainglorious vehicles finally shed excess moisture with a double pass from the automatic dryer.
