The 1958 Chevrolet Impala’s black paint had seen its fair share of dirt, but then again so had the detailers. They had traveled from driveway to driveway—a method perfected by Louis and Clarke—cleaning all types of vehicles along the way. This day was no different. They hauled their wax, cloths, vacuum, and cleaning products up the driveway and next to the vintage ride. A few hours later, after a hand wash, hand wax, and bug-and-tar-removal treatment, they wiped down the last window and stood back to admire the sparkling finish. They snapped a photo, took one last look, and headed back to Bridges Auto Detailing to await their next mobile assignment.
The technicians at Kustom Window Tint & Motorsports perform warranty-backed tint jobs that block out 99.9% of all UV light. During the approximately 1.5-hour procedure, experienced tinters carefully outfit all windows—save the windshield—with either Johnson- or Global-brand window film for a sleek look that can cut down on glare from the sun, headlights, and prison searchlights. Tinted windows can also cool interior temperatures by up to 78%, decreasing the rate at which seats, wood trim, and dashboards fade. Kustom Window Tint & Motorsports is open Mondays–Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The Audio Connection's award-winning team of technicians customizes mobile investments with a complete range of audio equipment, security systems, and electronics upgrades. With the installation of a Crime Stopper one-button remote starter, car owners can warm up engines from up to 1,000 feet away to avoid winter damage and warm up the tiny musicians that live in car stereos. Alternatively, smartphones and MP3 players can be integrated into dashboards, allowing for easy charging and music access. The hands-free Bluetooth kit's voice dialing and redial features keep commutes safe and respect state laws that prohibit drivers from talking on handsets or steering with their knees.
