A sleek white Ferrari purrs in the parking lot, and suddenly the opaque window rolls down to reveal Kim Kardashian behind the wheel, beaming with joy at her new custom-tinted windows. Fresh Window Tint’s owner Junior Ayala smiles, knowing he has satisfied yet another customer.

Using only premium products with at least a 20-year history, which includes Llumar protective window tint, insured technicians wrap windowpanes to reduce heat, solar glare, and up to 99.9% of UV rays. They also protect cars’ bodies with vinyl vehicle wrap or enhance headlights with 3M products. Like wallpaper made from dictionary pages, tinted windows are also stylish and practical for residences and businesses, allowing owners to save up to 40% on energy costs. Customers who live in the Santa Clarita/Valencia area may take advantage of Fresh Window Tint's pickup and drop-off service. Customers visiting from farther-flung locations can relax on the lounge’s plush leather sofas, enjoy snacks and beverages, and watch TV while their cars are being armored against heat and the blinding glare reflected off glass-bottom airplanes.
At Valencia Car Wash, the ideal path to a sparkling paint job depends on the answers to a few questions. How much time does the customer have? Are there any small scratches or bits of tree sap that need removing? Does the interior need a thorough shampoo or a quick ghost busting? Once they have the answers, the detailers can select the perfect service for customers' needs. After their standard wash and vacuum, they can go on to wax exteriors, clean engines, or even restore headlights. Valencia Car Wash doesn't focus exclusively on looks, however. Their techs also administer 22-point oil changes that include the replacement of other essential engine fluids.

In 1986, Rob of Rob’s Glass Tinting found an automotive outlet for his artistic side.

Through the use of a computerized cutting system, technicians are able to install fitted window films that cling to glass with aesthetic precision, avoiding embarrassing gaffes such as missed corners, sloppy edges, or loose, baggy films that look like hand-me-downs from 1970s conversion vans.
