There is plenty to see from the San Diego Zoo's Africa Safari tram: resting lions, horned antelopes, majestic giraffes. But Detail Systems' Anthony Madafferi pays this wildlife little heed. He concentrates more on the sloping terrain that sweeps dust and mud on the beautiful, brightly colored trams he regularly details with his self-contained mobile detailing unit.

The safari trams are just some of the vehicles that Anthony and the techs at Detail Systems have revitalized over the past two decades; the list also includes the herds of Buicks that attend the Buick Invitational golf tournament. Their signature detailing service begins with a dousing in deionized water, which leaves the hand-washed exterior spot-free. Then, with a specially designed covalent chemical bond, Glassplexin paint sealant polishes a shiny luster on finishes, protecting them from oxidation and tailgating UV rays.

Thousands upon thousands of vehicles have rolled into Scripps Poway Hand Car Wash & Detailing soiled by dirt and mud and left looking shiny and new. The key ingredient isn't a magical wax or shampoo?its elbow grease. Every full-service wash packages begin with a scrubbing done by human hand, which means the staff can reach spots machine might otherwise miss. Polishes, sealer waxes, and interior dressings play their part in getting the car looking spic and span, too. Detailing teams, meanwhile, tackle more advanced forms of dirt by applying carnauba waxes and tire dressing to the exterior and steam-cleaning and conditioning interior seats and surfaces. The facility welcomes dirty vehicles seven days a week since rain storms, puddles, and nauseous garbage trucks can muddy a car at any time.
