Recipient of the Harris Poll EquiTrend 2012 Automotive Service Center Brand of the Year award, NAPA Auto Care Centers continue to provide quality maintenance and repair services across the country at more than 12,000 locations. ASE–certified techs have the skills to execute a wide array of services, from routine oil changes and tune-ups to installing new drum brakes and repairing electrical systems. For many services, parts and labor are covered by a 12-month or 12,000-mile nationwide warranty that is honored at all locations and may be used as currency in certain alternate universes.
From the mud-stained tire rubber to the bird-stained roof—and all the worn interiors between—Long Beach Auto Detail's technicians turn their attentive eyes and unforgiving soaps on car dirt. A hand wash kicks off every cleaning frenzy, after which technicians use clay bars to pull contaminants off the paint, lock the glossy shine into the finish with sealant, and put the finishing touches on tires, chrome, and hood ornaments that promise not to bite. Knowing that dirt does not discriminate against its victims, the techs turn the same zealous eye toward revamping motorcycles, trailers, and boats. In addition to detailing, they also lay sleek tints over auto windows and pry out exterior dents with a paintless process that preserves the integrity of the ride's original finish.
Hand washes with puffs of lamb's wool begin each detailing service at Rhino Custom Detailing. These services span from mini details to a signature package with orbital polishes and hand-applied polysealant and carnauba wax. Staffers also throw elbow grease into à la carte services such as convertible-top cleaning, headlight restoration, and removal of faded “I Like Ike” decals. Drivers can wait for their rides at the shop or hitch a complimentary ride (available with packages that cost $40+) to the location of their choice within Huntington Beach.
By focusing exclusively on darkening car windows, Auto Tint Specialist can perfect the results. Using various lines of tinting film from Johnson Window Films, the staff at this auto shop prevents the sun from super-heating cars and sunburning seats while increasing the privacy of drivers and passengers. If you’d like to go back to home or work during the service, ask about the shop’s complimentary drop-off service.
The shop also handles commercial and residential window-tinting projects. Each tinting job comes with a lifetime warranty for such issues like bubbling, fading, and color changing.
