The presenters at the 2011 Hoodie Awards couldn’t hide their shock when, for the fourth year in a row, Showroom Shine Express Detailing took home the prize for Best Detail Shop, exclaiming, “They defend it every year!” The award was no surprise to the shop’s lengthy list of regulars, a loyal group that includes professional athletes, tons of locals, and the annual Ferrari calendar’s racy centerfold car. The staff sends rides from its lot to gleam in the sunshine, or it deploys its mobile detailing team to you. The meticulous detailing packages cover cars and SUVs from bottom to top as the team members scrub tires, shampoo carpets, wipe consoles, and wash and wax exteriors. They can also tint windows, repair windshields, and clear out foggy headlights.
Fully dedicated to vehicular beauty and upkeep, the technicians at Presidential Auto Detailing meticulously detail the interiors and exteriors of cars, SUVs, motorbikes, boats, and RVs. A clay-bar treatment over the body, windows, and tires helps dislodge embedded surface contaminants, followed by a wax to increase cars’ gleam. Inside the cabin, staffers wipe the dash and console, shampoo carpets, and vacuum dirt out of even the tiniest crevices and Lilliputian hiding places. They also condition all leather and shine motors. Presidential also tints vehicles’ windows, with technicians affixing durable SunTek film to reduce glare, filter out the sun's UVs, and increase privacy.
Auto Spa Etc. hosts a talented crew with a knack for freeing vehicles of filth and grime, using elevated water pressure to de-soil street steeds during a full-service wash and dry topped off with Rain-X surface protectant. The touchless car wash and gas station at Auto Spa Etc. also team up with expert technicians to retool vehicles with meticulous detailing and maintenance services.
Ziebart's auto aficionados dispel grit and grime with their exclusive brand of products and specialized equipment. Beginning with a hand wash, washer-persons lovingly scrub exteriors, eliminating road residue. Asserting their dominance over technology, attentive technicians compel machines to polish paintjobs, restoring luster to chromatic coverings and buffing light scratches. Motorcar magicians then cast a sparkling spell on chrome, trim, tires, wheels, and glass. The two-hour buggy bath concludes with an application of a Ziebart- seasonal protective paint coating, which defends shine from the constant attacks of UV rays and the jeering taunts of envious starlight.
Auto Spa's top-of-the-line speedy Lustra wash ($12) pampers the most mobile member of your family with an exterior wash it will never forget. Send your reeking roadster or soiled sedan into the conveyorized express tunnel, where it will have its surface scrubbed and hubcaps rubbed into a sublime state of shininess. Soft-cloth cleansing mechanisms, meanwhile, wash your horseless carriage's delicate underbelly and behind-the-ear areas. Auto Spa will also solemnly remove any insects that have met their untimely end upon the war-torn windshield, notify their loved ones, and give them a proper burial. A Lustra surface gloss will then be lovingly applied to your auto-wagon's surface, coating it with iridescent brighteners and ultraviolet protection. The wash is concluded when the sopping vehicle is turbo-dried, smacked on the bottom, and effectively reborn into automotive existence.
Local highways, driveways, and parking lots teem with sparkling cars thanks in part to Country Club Express Car Wash's 20-plus years of automotive grooming. The touchless wash systems and detailers dole out doses of products seven days a week, catering to cars whose conditions range from "in need of a quick rinse," to "coated in ostrich feathers and silly string." Country Club's unlimited wash clubs allow motorists to sanitize their cars as often as they see fit, and the wash stations at each facility are flanked by a Mobil On the Run. For cars that need a little more TLC, motorists can steer into one of the two full-service stations.
