Street Dreams Auto Styling specializes in complete automotive makeovers, upgrading cars to improve their appearance, comfort, and performance. Cosmetic overhauls include clear-bra paint protection and window tinting, a service performed with the backing of a lifetime warranty. Paint and bodywork, neon-light installations, and detailing further spruce up cars. Lest interiors feel ignored, technicians revive cockpits by installing sleek, custom upholstery, upgraded sound and video systems, and car alarms in case of break-ins by velociraptors.
There is plenty to see from the San Diego Zoo's Africa Safari tram: resting lions, horned antelopes, majestic giraffes. But Detail Systems' Anthony Madafferi pays this wildlife little heed. He concentrates more on the sloping terrain that sweeps dust and mud on the beautiful, brightly colored trams he regularly details with his self-contained mobile detailing unit.
The safari trams are just some of the vehicles that Anthony and the techs at Detail Systems have revitalized over the past two decades; the list also includes the herds of Buicks that attend the Buick Invitational golf tournament. Their signature detailing service begins with a dousing in deionized water, which leaves the hand-washed exterior spot-free. Then, with a specially designed covalent chemical bond, Glassplexin paint sealant polishes a shiny luster on finishes, protecting them from oxidation and tailgating UV rays.
The automotive aestheticians at Tint World beautify rides with a variety of detailing, window-film, and modification services. Window-tint treatments offer privacy and sun protection, and are available in custom designs such as flames and skulls. Installations services also include electronics, alarms, audio and video systems, and ejector seats. The outlet also supplies do-it-yourself detailers with car-care and performance products.
Speed Car Wash tackles dirty bumpers and grimy undercarriages with a full-line of car-wash services. Treat road warriors to a deep clean with the Ultimate Full Service car wash package, which brandishes exteriors to treatments such as tire tidying, a triple foam polishing, an underbody rinse, and a 10-minute hand wax with up to 30 days of water-beading protection. Interiors luxuriate in a vacuuming, floor-mat shampoo, dust-bunny eradication, and inner dressings for elegant car proms. For carriages covered in only a few layers of gunk, choose the Gold Full Service Car Wash which shakes off spotty messes, slathers chassis in a polishing coat of shine, and soothes away lingering images of muddy cleats with a soft-towel hand-dry ($15.95).
