The techs at Elite Auto Image trick out, clean, and restyle roadsters. Their custom body work, rims, and HID lighting improve the exterior look, and their Katzkin leather interior kits cover seats with assorted colors and custom logos. Techs use computer technology to precisely cut premium window films to block UV rays,and signs and graphics to display company information. After they install stereos, entertainment systems, and Bluetooth integrations with products by Pioneer, Alpine, and Sundown Audio, they back their work with a lifetime guarantee. They can also install security systems to protect autos from robbers and remote starters that warm up or cool down interiors before drivers venture out to capture their would-be robbers. Meanwhile, their mobile detailing crew washes and waxes autos by hand and scours sullied interiors on location.
Rides roll through Perfect Touch Auto to stand out from their assembly-line compatriots. Armed with a bevy of customization products, the shop’s technicians add practical and aesthetic flair to cars, trucks, and SUVs, tinting windows with Solar Gard film, illuminating headlights with HID lighting kits, and filling cabins with thumping bass from Pioneer sound systems. Viper remote starters enable drivers to rev engines at a distance using their iPhones, and full detailing services spruce up ins and outs with cleaning measures performed by hand and occasionally foot.
The Auto Spa lavishes ordinary rides with the careful attention normally reserved for celebrity coupes and supermodel Ts. Your Ultimate Works Wash begins with a thorough, environmentally friendly wash, applied with soft cloths to prevent scratches, while an underbody flush rinses dirt and debris from your car’s sensitive underbelly. Wheels will be left looking shiny and new after a wheel blaster service and tire dressing, while a triple foam polish, spot-free rinse, and towel drying rid besmirched auto bodies of dirt and water spots, and also protect against unjust road-pirate mutiny. After locking in your car’s newfound radiance with a protective layer of sealer wax, the careful technician will then move inside, wiping down the dashboard, door jambs, and glass, before vacuuming all floor carpets, floor mats, and upholstery to rid them of dirt, dust, and hibernating marmots.
Trademark Auto Detailers hauls its entire arsenal of VOC compliant, 100% biodegradable cleaning products to clients' homes and businesses. That way, vehicles don't have to waste gas or even change out of their pajamas as technicians hand wash them right in their own driveways, reviving paint and trim with a clay bar, high-speed wax, and chrome polish. For grimy interiors, treatments such as plastic and vinyl dressing and shampoos help cabins and backseats rebound from food spills or muddy shoes. Basic washes can be enhanced with extras from pet-hair removal to headlight restoration, and for an extensive overhaul, technicians can even clean the car's engine or apply a protective finish to interior fabric.
The 1958 Chevrolet Impala’s black paint had seen its fair share of dirt, but then again so had the detailers. They had traveled from driveway to driveway—a method perfected by Louis and Clarke—cleaning all types of vehicles along the way. This day was no different. They hauled their wax, cloths, vacuum, and cleaning products up the driveway and next to the vintage ride. A few hours later, after a hand wash, hand wax, and bug-and-tar-removal treatment, they wiped down the last window and stood back to admire the sparkling finish. They snapped a photo, took one last look, and headed back to Bridges Auto Detailing to await their next mobile assignment.
