Named the best carwash by CityVoter in 2009, V.I.P. Car Wash restores radiance to road-weary wagons with an uncanny attention to detail. Each V.I.P. wash ferries besmirched buggies through a sudsy sluicing that cleans with softened water to protect the paint and avoid hard-water stains. After cleaning the hood, roof, windows, and doors, the automated sprayers focus on ridding salt and grime from the underbody before applying a rust inhibitor just like a relaxing robot spa treatment. Next, a clear coat conditioner and protectant are applied before a shiny smothering of tri-poly foam polish leaves a glassy coat that’s slick enough to impress dolphins. Rubbery road donuts are treated to a wheel brightener and tire dressing.
Discount Auto Glass’s expert technicians restore glass damaged by everyday dents and dings, replacing cracked windshields, repairing mirrors, or renovating side windows done in by errant rocks. After removing busted screens, they swap in Tam Glass Lines’ replacement windshield glass, which is shaped using the latest technology that meets or exceeds DOT specifications. Technicians can also custom cut glass to fit heavy equipment or vintage car windows, or remedy small chips before they escalate to full-fledged cracks. Other parts of the car will receive dutiful attention as well, as they re-attach review mirrors, repair mechanical door problems, and replace wiper blades with extra-long synthetic eyelashes.
