The ASE-certified mechanics that staff FixCarNow's five locations reinvigorate cars with Castrol GTX oils and preempt problems with sweeping diagnostics. During each one-hour premium oil change, techs drain contaminated lubricants and replace them with up to five quarts of clean oil (synthetic available for an additional fee). New filters then assume guard duty in place of their dirty predecessors, intercepting dirt and rumors about recent monster-truck sightings. A 16-point diagnostic inspection takes techs on a tour of car’s vital components, and includes a brake inspection, chassis lube, fluid top off, and wiper-blade check. Service bays happily hoist cars up for fluid transfusions seven days a week, meaning drivers can no longer use busy schedules or observance of Take Your Unicycle to Work Day as an excuse for shirking automotive duties.
The owners and technicians at LA Auto Glass Winaffix maintain the structural integrity of glass with repairs that keep damage from spreading, which may eventually lead to replacement. An eco-friendly philosophy stresses repair over replacement, keeping nonrecyclable windshields out of landfills and preserving the factory seal on original windshields. Confident in their glasswork, techs back up all their work with a lifetime warranty, which protects against workmanship error, air leaks, and water leaks from heavy rain or drives off the high-dive.

Some artists make lifeless pieces of paper the beneficiaries of their talent. But for more than 15 years, Mahnaz has used her talent to fill lips, brows, and lash lines with indelible pigments through permanent-makeup procedures. In addition to coloring lips with natural-looking pigments, she can trace kissers with full, pouty outlines. As she defines eyelids, she dots the pigment between the lashes to make each strand appear as thick as a professional passport stamper?s dominant forearm. Mahnaz also emboldens brows by drawing solid shapes or feather-like strokes. As a corrective-pigment camouflage specialist, she can help restore areolas damaged or lost through surgery. When Mahnaz isn't inking fa?ades, she dry needles wrinkles and scars to coax skin-plumping collagen into production and beautifies fringed lids with lash extensions and perms. Mahnaz also shares her skills with aspiring permanent-makeup artists by teaching certification courses.
