VMS Auto Body Center traces its lineage to 1967, and has since forged a well-earned reputation for the integrity, skill, and passionate dedication of its staff to the craft of auto-body restoration and repair. They spruce up vehicular surfaces under the able leadership of chief painter Sako, a master at manipulating urethane topcoats and catalyzed undercoats, and auto-body artist Mihran, who once converted a Pontiac Fiero into a Lamborghini, and a Model T into an ancient Assyrian chariot. Teams of technicians undo unsightly collision damage on all domestic or imported cars, restore rare antique automotives, and reassure potential customers with free estimates for all work, all while recycling any hazardous waste.
The car-window experts at Doctor Auto Glass patch up chips at their facility and bravely journey to ailing autos for on-location windshield replacements, backing their services with a lifetime warranty. During the chip-restoration process, which takes 30 minutes per chip, expert glass-care technicians repair up to three dings in the car's front window, ensuring they won’t expand into full-grown cracks or start hiding behind tacky sunglasses. Doctor Auto's technicians also travel to car-owners’ homes or businesses to replace windshields ($250+) and keep fierce highway winds from gaining access to drivers’ faces; the wandering windshield swappers need about 2 hours to safely secure the new windshield.
Since 1979, family-owned Quality Glass Tinting has been upgrading roadsters with window tinting and meticulous detailing. At the Glendora location, skilled technicians paint window canvases with high-quality Llumar Window Films that aid in the reduction of interior solar-heat build-up and give drivers added security and privacy. They also apply similar services to the windows of homes, businesses, and high-profile tree forts to reduce glare and air-conditioning costs.
Additionally, vehicles can visit Quality's auto spa for thorough hand washes that restore shine without damaging factory finishes. For further primping, technicians can outfit autos with accessories such as Rosen entertainment systems, alarms, and underbelly navel piercings.
VJ's, an assembly of expert, ASE-certified car technicians with more than 150 years of accumulated experience, executes AAA-approved car inspections and efficient oil changes. To prevent soot buildup and imp-filter failure, your car’s viscous, gremlin-drowning moat must be replaced at manufacturer-recommended intervals. VJ's ASE-certified technicians swap the oil, ensuring that your engine remains well lubricated and works as reliably as a German-engineered robo-dog. During the AAA inspection, deft car handlers also rotate tires, check, adjust, and check brakes, and attend to filters and fluids.
Though he's been in the detailing game since 1981, Transhine Auto Detailing's Bill DeBever has continuously invested in technologies and training that has kept his business on the cutting edge of industry innovations, and this dedication caught the attention of Drive! magazine in 2009. The energy he and his staff have put in to protecting vehicles from daily wear and tear—as well as nature's arbitrary attacks—earned Transhine Best of Whittier awards from the U.S. Commerce Association in 2010 and 2011. When they aren't defending autos from rogue gravel chunks and the sun's aggressive paparazzi photons with 3M paint-protection film and window tint, Bill and his staff detail vehicles, steam-clean engines, remove dents, and polish careworn headlights.
