The techs at Elite Auto Image trick out, clean, and restyle roadsters. Their custom body work, rims, and HID lighting improve the exterior look, and their Katzkin leather interior kits cover seats with assorted colors and custom logos. Techs use computer technology to precisely cut premium window films to block UV rays,and signs and graphics to display company information. After they install stereos, entertainment systems, and Bluetooth integrations with products by Pioneer, Alpine, and Sundown Audio, they back their work with a lifetime guarantee. They can also install security systems to protect autos from robbers and remote starters that warm up or cool down interiors before drivers venture out to capture their would-be robbers. Meanwhile, their mobile detailing crew washes and waxes autos by hand and scours sullied interiors on location.

The trained technicians at B&B Customs customize vehicles with a slew of gadgets, such as remote-start and security systems from Code Alarm.

In 2004, the company added a scooter shop and loaded it with a stockpile of scooters and ATVs for renting, buying, or using to patch a scooter-shaped hole in your wall.
