Unlike cats and germaphobes, automobiles need to be reminded to wash themselves. Drop a blatant hint to your lazy ride with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a custom detail on a regular-size vehicle at AJ Auto Detailing on Coleman Avenue (a $160 value).
Treat your auto to some pampering and upkeep with a custom detailing that includes a hand wash, clay bar treatment, two coats of high-tech carnauba wax, and a mini detailing of the car's interior. This carriage-coddling package is listed as the High-Tech Carnauba Wax (Includes Clay Bar) service on AJ Auto Detailing's website.
First, tires, wheels, and fender wells are cleaned before a careful hand wash employs a purified-water system and slew of wash shampoos to remove all traces of dirt and Jello residue. The car is then blow-dried with controlled air pressure and hand-dried with soft, clean, nonscratching chamois. Next, the doorjambs and moldings get shown a little love while the tires get dressed and the windows are squeegeed and cleaned. A clay bar, a hand-applied product, then safely removes bonded surface contaminants such as road grime, industrial and nuclear fallout, tree sap, and bug residue from the paint's finish.
After the vehicle cleaning, AJ Auto Detailing applies two coats of hi-tech carnauba wax, leaving the car with an intense luster and shine. A mini detailing of your ride's interior follows, granting auto innards a thorough vacuuming and wipe clean, followed by a meticulous dusting of the visors, gauges, dashboard, and instrument panels.
Freshly beautified buggies are also treated with an antistatic spray to enhance their glow and repel dust. In all, the process takes about an hour and 15 minutes, leaving you plenty of free time for errands and keeping tabs on the most recent Beanie Baby valuations.
