From custom leather seats to eye-catching spoilers, Autoplex by Vanworks refurbishes cars, trucks, and SUVs with interior and exterior accessories. Window tints by 3M, Webasto sun roofs, and bumpers are just part of the shop’s exterior enhancements; technicians also equip rides with tires by Michelin and Good Year. On the inside, technicians install both luxuries and necessities, including seat-heaters, floor mats, and LiquiCell Comfort equipment, which save drivers from a sore coccyx after a long road-trip or stake-out of their old principal's house. Alpine products drive Autoplex’s electronics division, where the professional installers can soup up systems with everything from overhead video units to vehicle-specific navigation systems.
Finn Mototech's ASE-certified master technicians keep roadsters running smoothly with expert inspections and eco-friendly cleaners concocted on-site. Auto buffs briskly assess motorized innards during a 30-minute oil change that slakes pavement prowlers with up to 5 quarts of fresh engine juice or a Gatorade reduction accompanied by a new filter and lube. Alternatively, 150-point inspections delve under hoods to explore mechanical mazes for 60–90 minutes. Vehicular healers diagnose dangerous imperfections in interiors, windshields, and headlights, as well as unravel mysteries surrounding malfunctioning dash instruments, transmissions, and rearview mirrors that reflect the ghost of your old Model T. Amiable staffers ensure you'll feel safe and squeaky clean on your next road trip by examining tires and revivifying horseless buggies with a basic wash and vacuum.
Beauty may only be skin deep, but at Zolarium Tanning Studio, that's OK. Versed in a vast array of tanning and skincare services, the studio’s technicians help their clientele achieve golden-bronze hues without having to withstand the sun's creepy leer. Each one is Smart Tan certified, a benchmark that measures each operator's knowledge of ultraviolet light, safe tanning practices, and ability to disassemble a tanning bed should it become sentient. They use this knowledge to monitor each tanner in their studio simultaneously, through Zolarium's networked array of horizontal and vertical tanning beds.
The beautifying treatments don't stop at tanning; DaVinci teeth whitening, Evolv airbrush, and a plethora of skincare lotions help clients maintain all manner of youthful glows. Zolarium also keeps the community looking good, giving back through charitable efforts such as sponsoring the Denver Firefighter Calendar every year.
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.
