The technicians at Steve's Detailing and Hand Car Wash deliver autos from their dirtiness during standard washes, touching up cars with ultra-bright wax-saving soap before gently drying them with a leather chamois. Wheels and tires perk up after a quick dressing; cleaners also tidy up the inside, wash the windows, and vacuum the premises. Steve's detail commences with a hand wash and tar and bug removal, after which the technicians polish the chrome and glass. As tires lounge in a bath of rubber dressing, detailers venture inside with a vacuum and flush out spots in the mats and carpets with a thorough shampoo treatment. After treating the exterior with a clay-bar paint-correction process, technicians coat it with carnauba wax to enhance the new glow and protect it from being stolen by fireflies low on luciferase.
