Tiffany Dalida's passion for auto detailing led her to open Hi-Line Auto Detail, calling upon her professional experience with various models to cater to each vehicle?s individual needs. The duo loosens dirt and grime strewn across car exteriors using ACS products, and performs clay-bar techniques to clear overspray and fall out garnered from the road or spontaneously combusting Slurpees. The team combines waxing, washing, and interior treatments from their list of services to form handy packages, or leaves the customization up to their patrons with ? la carte services.
With upwards of 16 million customers served, the technicians at Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting have the experience to restore vehicles' insides and outsides to like-new condition. They specialize in ?cosmollision,? a budget-friendly combination of cosmetic and collision repair, and they guarantee their work with a warranty honored at any of nearly 500 body-shop locations. Certified staffers use PPG color-match systems to paint exteriors with finishes that resist chemicals, tough road conditions, and frog plagues. The company's large network and efficient production systems allow them to keep wait times and costs low, and their wealth of insurance knowledge helps to expedite accident claims.
For more than a decade, the ASE Master–certified technicians at One Stop Auto Center have tended to the automobiles of Pearl City residents and customers passing through town. Detailed inspections and oil changes allow the staff to keep cars running smoothly, unlike a marathoner that jogs on a trail of hot coals. A Bosch 3D camera system calculates the adjustments needed to restore wheels to their factory alignment settings, helping to extend the life of tires.
For more than 12 years, the detail technicians at Perfect Auto Shine have been making cars, trucks, and SUVs sparkle like new with their meticulous hand washes. They fearlessly face down automotive adversities such as mud, salt, and amorous shopping carts in parking lots with three levels of detailing, and they cap their more extensive services with clay-bar polishes. The team also offers restorative services a la carte, buffing out scuffs, shining headlights, and deodorizing interiors.
When it comes to spearfishing, Westside Dive and Tackle founder Kris Tyler considers using scuba tanks as cheating. So when he suits up to spearfish, the seasoned outdoorsman plunges 20 feet below the water’s surface, holds his breath in the stillness, and waits: “You become a part of the reef or rock, and you wait for the perfect situation—for the one fish that might give you that really good shot.” A self-described “water baby,” Kris has been swimming and fishing in Hawaii and Florida since childhood. Most of all, he loves the way spearfishing enables him to connect with the underwater universe and partake in a tradition Hawaiians have enriched for generations.
In addition to his spearfishing expeditions, Mr. Tyler totes explorers to his favorite sunken wrecks and lava caverns off the coast of Oahu on scuba-diving charters, and equips them to chart their own expeditions or challenge blowfish to staring contests during scuba-diving certification.
