Eco Wash Hawaii employs a waterless wash system that's friendly to the environment. Every product used for waterless wash and wax services is biodegradable. From their outpost at the Windward Mall, staff members also restore headlights and work with minor scratch removal. Patrons are free to catch a movie or browse boutiques while their car receives its earth-friendly wipedown.
At Windward Smiles, Dr. Russell P. Kim helms a friendly, professional staff dedicated to ensuring handsome smiles and long-term dental health with Invisalign treatments. During the treatment, which lasts 6–18 months on average, a series of form-fitted, clear plastic trays gently herds mouth bones into proper order for 22 hours each day, without unsightly and uncomfortable wires, brackets, or suspension bridges. Every two weeks, a new set of removable trays realigns enamel ridges until teeth are fully balanced and evenly adjusted. In addition to promoting beautiful smiles and unsullied grins, having a well-trained set of perfectly arranged teeth ensures the long-term health of the oral cavity, making it easier to remove plaque and spitballs hurled by unruly taste buds.
Hawaiian WaterSports set up shop with the intention of equipping residents and visitors with everything they need to enjoy the aqua waves and waterways of Hawaii. The shop realized that goal with two locations, each stacked to the gills with surfboards, kiteboards, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, and books on how to beat mermaids at Marco Polo. Hawaiian WaterSports is an official IKO kiteboarding center and its IKO-certified instructors teach students wind theory and the skills necessary to set up, launch, and ride their own kiteboard. Expert surfers on staff can also take squads of aquatic adventures out into the curling sea for lessons specifically designed to get beginners hanging ten and perfecting balancing technique for future limbo competitions.
Automotive Emporium’s owner has worked in the auto industry for the better part of his life, including long stints detailing luxurious and exotic vehicles. Under his keen eye, though, every car is treated as if it were a luxury vehicle. Gentle microfiber mitts lather exteriors with shampoos while conditioners reanimate faded dashboards and steam cleaners renew the interior upholstery. The attentive technicians here offer tiered hand-wash and detailing packages that range from basic cleanings to extensive treatments that last for hours.
American Tire Company's tread scholars help to extend tire lifetimes and improve fuel economy with computerized tire services. ASE-certified technicians rotate wheels to alternate sides of the auto, evening out wear on treads and giving tires a new axle to talk to. Using the Hunter P811 computerized alignment rack, technicians also straighten the angles of wayward wheels to improve fuel economy. Service appointments typically take 30–45 minutes but vary by vehicle type.
The following manuscript was recently discovered in Westminster among the personal effects of Samuel Pepys, a 17th-century English gentleman, diarist, and chief secretary of the admiralty. It is thought to be the first written evidence of the existence of tinted windows.
Up very betimes with the great brightness of the sun, and so to meet with Sir Carteret¹, who come to speak to me on the horrible newes such as we shall hear shortly of: that for the want of boats, our Navy has been routed by the Flemings on the waters of Medway², that our sailors refuse to mount their vessels, and that want of money causes prevents Parliament from sending out a fleete for a proper answer. Then go we by water to Deptford, and to a good dinner of plain pheasant and much wine.
After dinner, Carteret shewed his new coach, which doth defend the eyes from the fury of the sun with windows painted with pitch. Back to Whitehall by coach, as sundry youths and maidens cry out at the pleasant appearance of our noble hoopty. Though without, summer heat doth oppress and sweat the rabble, I remain undisturbed, despite my seventeen 17 stone of cloth finery, powder, jewellry, and wigs. I do understand but little of it, but welcome any respite from Apollo’s rays. So to supper, and then to bed, with thoughts of vexation and jealousy for Sir Carteret’s good fortune.
¹ Sir George Carteret, member of the Privy Council and staunch Tory
² Pepys refers to the Raid on the Medway, a decisive Dutch victory in the Second Anglo–Dutch War, in which the Dutch fleet launched a surprise attack on the docks at Chatham, towing away more than a dozen English ships as well as the Royal Navy mascot—a hardtack biscuit with pasted-on googly eyes named the Rt. Hon. Captain Crisp.
