The owner of Airline Auto Care & Detailing converts sullied cars into sparkling rides with a knowledgeable staff and 41 years of his own detailing experience. Technicians liberate headlights from sight-obstructing films and streaks during the restoration process without removing the bulb itself, which lends the lights renewed illuminative powers and the ability to invert a speed bump with one quick flicker. During the 45- to 90-minute detail, staffers groom the vehicle's exterior by hand, dematerializing hardened dirt and grime with a deft, gentle hand. Next, the cleaners administer a coating of carnauba-based wax to increase the paint's luster and protect it from the elements, and duck down to whittle away at muck on the tires and treat the wheels until they shine as bright as a brass band playing in a house of mirrors. Inside, techs excavate debris with a vacuum, lather shampoos across the splotched pastures, and treat the vinyl, leather, and headliner to a sanitizing spa treatment.
