Some drivers may prefer to impress onlookers with a shiny, reflective finish on their car. Others may opt to treat their carpool passengers or favorite morning-radio hosts to freshly laundered interiors. Knowing that motorists have different priorities, Wax Man Industries augments whole-car details with a full spectrum of customized services, which allow drivers to assemble a detail tailored to their own comfort and cosmetic preferences.
With the help of nanotechnology products, including high-gloss waxes and sanitizing shampoos, the detailers hone in on smeared exteriors, stained upholstery, and greasy engines to transform every car their sponges touch into a vehicle that looks like it escaped from a Ferrari daycare. Included in the roster of detail services are more-involved restoration techniques, including buffing, sanding, and oxidation treatments performed with a 24-hour turnaround and a money-back guarantee in case clients aren't satisfied. In addition to four-wheeled vehicles, the technicians also revamp boats, airplanes, trailers, and motorcycles to ensure exteriors gleam on the sea, in the air, and through action-movie stunts through the air into the sea.
With 15 years of experience, the techs at Wax Man Industries have also extended their cleaning know-how into homes in the form of carpet cleaning powered by hot-water-extraction techniques. They pore over carpets with double-pass cleaning strokes and double-drying strokes that shorten the dry time overall. Even though they remorselessly nix deep-seated stains and blotches, their cleaning techniques are hypoallergenic and remain safe for kids and pets alike.
When customers roll into LG Customs with their favorite auto, the technicians unroll tinting film and apply it to the windows using precision tools, including the noble squeegee. They do this not only to enhance the car's appearance, but also to improve the glass's safety and protective features. With professional tinting film properly installed, windows block up to 99% of the sun's UV rays while reducing heat and preventing interiors from fading and cracking. The crew also knows that tinting film adds a level of shatter resistance, holding the glass together during an accident or when transporting troupes of operatic sopranos.

With its sloping, spanish-tiled roof and matching fill-station canopy, Emerald Oil looks more like a roadside chateau than a roadside gas station.

Inside the station shop, beer, liquor, and tobacco products rub elbows with a wide variety of sodas, coffee, and snacks. Customers can pick up lotto tickets and newspapers or ask the clerks’ assistance in filling up propane tanks and dream journals until 10 p.m. daily.
