A native of Hawaii, Kerwin Miyashiro founded Aloha Detailing in his home state more than a decade ago. In 2005, his love of mountain biking brought him to Snowmass, where he raced in the national downhill competition and fell in love with Colorado's beauty. Kerwin relocated soon thereafter, bringing Aloha Detailing along with him. When he isn't traipsing across mountainous trails, he joins his technicians in detailing cars, boats, motorcycles, and airplanes with products by Adam's, Meguiar's, Menzerna, and Auto Magic. After washing exteriors by hand, they buff the paint with premium carnauba wax and polish chrome accents. In addition to cleaning cars inside and out, Kerwin's technicians also degrease engines and dress them in tailored tuxedos.
The Hub Car Wash & Diner pays homage to Route 66 with an expansive, nostalgia-filled wall mural and an auto shop dedicated to old-fashioned service. At the facility's nucleus, staff members man a ‘50s-style diner counter where visitors can order breakfast and lunch while their vehicle undergoes washing and detailing services. Using wash tunnels and bare hands, the cleaning crews help to revamp cars, motorcycles, boats, RVs, and semitrucks. They deluge paint in soap, water, and protective spells as visitors peruse the gift shop's wares or take in the scenic view of Pikes Peak from the outdoor patio.
At BumperDoc, specialized auto technicians repair dings and dents, meticulously clean car interiors and exteriors, and protect precious vehicles from UV rays with window tinting.

Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
At Experience Matters, seasoned technicians take a swift and gentle hand to sullied cars, motorcycles, and boats. They dive deep into nooks and crannies, pulling out trapped dirt before waxing and buffing exteriors to a brilliant shine. A lathering of carpet shampoo paired with a leather treatment tidies up interiors, and complete detail packages make autos sparkle from top to tail. The technicians also can perform cosmetic services, such as touching up paint, restoring headlights, and clipping cars' wings so they don't fly away.
For 30 years, Water Works has been delivering dirtlessness to cars of all makes and models. With an Ultra Clearcoat de-dirting, each auto undergoes a slew of spick-and-spanning services: The expert staff will wash and towel dry your car's exterior before a full-service inner cleaning evicts crumbs from floor-mat crannies and caked-on road rage from the steering wheel. The air-freshening service will mist interiors with a scent of your choice, banishing the old, musty car smell, which can be bottled for nostalgic customers. Undercarriages will be power flushed and coated in a rust protector, and a series of paint-protecting sealers and waxes help maintain a shiny enamel and a brightening agent offers tired wheels a facelift. Round out the de-tarnishing with a Rain-X Complete surface protectant, which helps bead and repel water from each of your car's body parts.
