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.
Chargers Hall of Famer Don Macek opened Mira Mesa Auto Spa in 1992 along with his teammate Dennis McKnight. Their goal: to create an automatic car wash that cleans cars in five minutes with Blue Coral products and a high-powered drying system. Their services range from express washes to meticulous detailing sessions, the latter of which finds techs waxing exteriors by hand, removing impurities with clay bars, and reorganizing out-of-place atoms.
