Rockstars' team works hard to keep cars looking beautiful. Their services include everything from paintless dent repair and windshield chip repair to paint touch-ups and bumper work. Fiscally and environmentally conscious, they strive to recondition the car's current parts rather than throw them out, which can cost more and crowd landfills. They can also adorn windows with 3M tinted film or scour vehicles clean, inside and out, with detailing packages. They even perform complete makeovers where they doll up autos with custom graphics, light bars, spoilers, fender flares, or any number of accoutrements that match the owner's evening wear.
When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process. Decked out in cartoon neckties, the cheerful team ushers cars into computer-controlled washers that eschew traditional gear-operated brushes and baseball bats in favor of controlled sprays and soft cloths. After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.
The owners of Prime Car Wash don’t just take care of auto bodies—they take care of human bodies as well. The auto-care center was the concept of two chiropractors and a medical-sales professional who wanted to provide a better wash for their community’s autos. So, they built Prime Car Wash, offering exterior-only or interior-and-exterior washes. While the exterior-only wash includes such services as a soft-cloth wash, undercarriage cleaning, towel dry, and hand-applied tire shine, the interior-and-exterior wash adds interior vacuuming and cleaning. There are also à la carte express-detail options that include carpet shampooing, hand waxing, and attaching googley eyes to headlights. Clients waiting for cars to finish can sip a latte inside the Prime Café coffee bar and browse the web on the business’s iPads.
The staff at Elite Auto Detailing of Indianapolis know that judgment and experience matter, which is why they only invite crew members with at least two years of detailing experience to join the team. The team pairs its know-how with premium equipment and tactics, refurbishing paint jobs with Car Brite solutions, clay bars, and water heated up to 220 degrees. For lasting vehicular makeovers, they also install vehicle graphics and deep window tints, which help cars turn away the sun’s harmful UV rays and the moon’s attempts to snoop around the glove box.
At an early age, Kevin Coulter acquired advanced detailing and vehicular-reconditioning skills while working at a local Indiana Auto Auction. Today, he draws on more than 20 years of experience as he operates Luxury Cars of Indianapolis, where skilled techs service chariots using Meguiar's nonabrasive and eco-friendly products. The team wields pH-balanced leather conditioner to moisturize seats, a detailer's clay bar to smooth exterior surfaces, and custom-mixed paints to brighten auto cheeks. Staffers can also pick up, drop off, and spin vehicles on their fingertips for an additional cost.
