Road-weary wagons shed salt and grime while adding protective finishes as they pass through Palos Auto Spa’s automatic wash. Before the car wash welcomes tired trucks and cars with a soft, soapy embrace, it offers them a kindhearted presoak conditioner ($12.75). Then, a high-pressure wash dismisses lingering road residue from the exterior, Armor All Body Shied coats your car in a bulletproof sheen, and an undercarriage wash and wheel-blaster treatment expel dirt and dust before they metamorphose into rust. A tire dressing with included rim scrubbing ($3), VisionClear window protectant, tri-foam polish, hand-towel try and new air freshener round out the package.
Tidal Wave Hand Car Wash's talented staff stabilizes chipped windows and swaps too-far-gone windshields for clear replacements. During the chip-repair service, technicians stymie small glass divots before they can grow into large, dangerous cracks that spell out cursive obscenities. One or two chip repairs seal over rock and debris damage before the entire window becomes impaired, leaving glass clear and driver visibility restored and safe. Skilled staffers replace windshields that have been damaged beyond repair can be removed and replaced with high-quality glass that allows commuters a clear view of the road and the thumb of a hitchhiking diplomat ($225+).
