Exterior Detailing

A good exterior detail is at the core of our car detailing services and is the starting point with any job. First, each car is gently hand-washed, including the wheel wells and engine compartment. We then decontaminate the paint with a clay bar and solvent which safely removes brake dust, road tar and other contaminants collected from the road. Once the exterior surface is properly cleaned and prepped, we finish with either a fine carnuba or synthetic wax. We will be sure to walk you through all of our paint sealant options during our initial inspection of your car


Interior Detailing

We believe having an immaculate and tidy interior not only makes you feel better, but makes a strong statement to the people around you. Allow us to erase dog hair, carpet stains and grime from the interior of your car so you can keep your focus on the things that matter.


Paint Correction

We offer a range of paint correction services to bring your cars natural shine back from swirl marks, scratches, etched paint, and oxidation. We also provide multi generational experience with show car and concours prep and detail. Nothing says more about your car then having flawless paint, and we are absolute perfectionists when it comes to this important step. 


Ceramic Coating — Paint Protection

When it comes to paint protection there’s no better option than a correctly applied ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings provide lasting peace of mind and long term protection that carnuba and synthetic waxes simply can’t compete with. The reality of relentless Washington state rain is that the effective life of regular waxes are greatly diminished and must be regularly reapplied to protect your car. Ceramic coatings bond directly to your clear coat, and naturally protect from the elements far better, leaving you with less work and more play.
