An authorized dealer for Crackmasters and Scorpion bed liners, One Stop Detail Shop leaves cars gleaming once they've undergone careful cleaning, repair, or preventive work at the shop. Detailing technicians beautify vehicles ranging from sedans to RVs and boats with hand waxes and hand washes, never trusting shifty feet to do the job right. Damaged windshields look new again after an application of chip-eradicating resin, a sealing technique that can smooth away cracks up to 36 inches long. Alternatively, the team also installs new windshields in versions that run heavier and thicker than typical Canadian models. To guard against future mishaps, technicians also administer protective treatments that include rustproofing metal parts and safeguarding paint against damage.
