The environmentally conscious staffers at Eco Auto Care Park and Wash cleanse each vehicle with little more than a teaspoon of water, helping reduce both runoff and water pollution. Stationed at area parking structures, they guide vehicles into parking spots for several tiers of detailing services, all of which employ organically formulated products. Specialized serums rejuvenate rubber and add shine, and a wash-and-polish solution with UVA and UVB light absorbers protects paint against light from the sun and cheese crumbs from the moon.

Captains must drop off sea steeds for two to three days to ensure ample time for detail orientation.
Lucky Auto Detailing proves its commitment to earth-friendly practices by cleaning carriages with only biodegradable solutions, microfiber towels, and liquid wax. Each wash is waterless, a habit which conserves up to 30 gallons of water per car, or the exact amount needed to save a tree that’s dehydrated from crying. The center collects its services in five treatment packages, which range from a six-step regular wash to a full detail complete with doorjamb cleaning and a conditioning of vinyl or leather seats. And Lucky Auto Detailing doesn’t just cleanse cars, but protects them as well; the center’s sealant service prevents color from fading with a two-step process that shields paint with a copolymer concoction capable of projecting a "wet" finish for up to one year.

Cars can roll in for bath time via the shop’s pickup and drop-off service or welcome a mobile detailing crew (for an extra fee) to their own driveways, parking spaces, or buggy garages.

In 1986, Rob of Rob’s Glass Tinting found an automotive outlet for his artistic side. While employed by an auto dealer, Rob witnessed a window-tinting expert work his magic and decided on the spot to follow suit. He apprenticed with the expert for two years before opening Rob's Glass Tinting in 1988, darkening the panes of homes, cars, and boats with Solar Gard film.
Through the use of a computerized cutting system, technicians are able to install fitted window films that cling to glass with aesthetic precision, avoiding embarrassing gaffes such as missed corners, sloppy edges, or loose, baggy films that look like hand-me-downs from 1970s conversion vans. They can tailor tints for any make or model of car, and their work has graced cars from automakers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, and Bentley.
