Shield System Car Wash's three locations peel off automotive filth with soft cloths before slathering vehicles with shine-enhancing layers of foam, wax, and sealant. The five-minute wash whittles caked exteriors down to the original shape and showroom shine with triple-foam soaps and underbody rinses. Wheel and rim are cleansed with Tire Shine, plucking debris from car's lower extremities before applications of Shield sealant and Shield vivid wax glaze the car shell to give it a smooth, shiny veneer. Finally, doses of Shield ultrashine sealant cling to the finish to defend its sparkling luster against dirt and hitchhiking paparazzi.

The scrub squad at HMA Car Care Systems performs auto-detailing services that banish grime from vehicular surfaces and protect exteriors from the elements. Hand-guided soft cloths rid surfaces of dirt, grime, and road residue with an attention to detail impossible for lazy, shiftless robot workers.

To finish the treatment, waxmasters hand-buff automobiles with pure, imported hard carnauba wax for a pedestrian-blinding shine. The deluxe car wash-and-wax package is available by appointment only; call ahead.
