Victory Lane Full Service Car Wash welcomes the chance to revamp dingy four-wheelers of all kinds, from pizza-stained jalopies to rain-splattered roadsters. The Good wash begins with a ride onto the touchless conveyor system, which shuttles your car through high-pressure water and mild detergents without scratching the paint job. After vehicular alchemy turns mud splatters into a luminous shine and nimble-handed attendants towel dry external contours, attendants shift their attention to the interior. A thorough vacuuming removes stray licorice strips and silt deposits from carpets and seat crevasses; then staffers wipe the dashboard clean and expunge interior windows of smudges. Motorists can expect a total wash time of 15–25 minutes, depending on vehicle size and the speed of time.
Road dirt and grime fall away at the first touch of Full Service Car Wash’s soft cloths and liquid soaps. At any of its four locations, automatic tunnels lavish cars from roof to undercarriage with rust-preventing waxes, triple-coat paint shields, and clear-coat polysealants that rebuild the vehicle’s glossy and reflective finish. For more extensive auto care, they’ll shampoo the seats clean and machine polish the finish in the detailing center.
Helmed by a pair of local muscle-car enthusiasts, Apex Autosports restores freshly minted speedsters and tottering jalopies alike to their pinnacles of performance and aesthetics with a full range of services. During the 3–4-hour detailing, the Apex crew meticulously removes built-up grime and clouds of chrome-eating bats from every fender nook and door cranny with an exterior hand wash. Next, an interior detailing shampoos carpets and de-gunks surfaces so that moss-covered dashboards are once again distinguishable from fuzzy dice. To keep cars from falling apart during daily jaunts to the pet store for more whale food, an Apex mechanic will subject steel steeds to an exacting mechanical inspection that identifies issues before they pupate into problems. For optimal service, Apex recommends that customers drop off grungy autos the night before so technicians can start work immediately at 7 a.m. the next day.
At Diamond Brite Auto Detailing, cleaning crews restore cars of all shapes and sizes with interior and exterior detailing services. They hand-wash and wax surfaces, removing scratches and ridding tires of dirt and muck. On the inside, the team vacuums and steam-cleans carpets and upholstery, wipes down the dash before applying a vinyl protectant, and removes stork nests attached to the roof. Aside from auto detailing, Diamond Brite creates custom paint jobs for cars, repairs or replaces cracked windshields, and removes road paint and overspray. The garage can also detail cars while customers are at work with their free pickup and delivery service.
