A long time customer of ours recently brought his Yamaha R1 to us. He wanted to have his bike tidied up and maintained. This R1 isn’t your everyday run of the mill sports bike, it has a matte paint finish, carbon fiber accessories, meaty rear tire and many other characteristics that sets it apart from the crowd. We had to be very careful with the matte paint to make sure it was properly cleaned. Every nook and cranny of this bike was touched by our detail team. Enjoy these photos we took after we thoroughly detailed this beautiful piece of machinery.
We at, Shine Auto Salon, work on many different vehicles. Everyone one of our customers has a different set of standards for their vehicle.

Featuring a F1A Procharger, Nitrous, Mantic triple disk clutch, Tremec Transmission, Tiger Racing carbon fiber hood and Forgestar wheels, it’s safe to say this isn’t your everyday Mustang. This S550 appears at several race tracks across the U.S. to participate in the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge. When it is driven, it is driven hard! See what the SHINE difference can do for you.
Since this is a track car, it has several decals on it during track days. Once those decals were removed, there was a nasty residue left behind. HP Tuners wanted us to remove this residue, bring the Mustangs paint back to a brilliant shine, touch up the engine bay and make that [...]
One of our most customers brought his newly purchased, 16′ BMW M4 Competition, to us wanting to protect its pristine paint finish with Xpel Ultimate self healing film. We recommended getting the full front end protected. Full front end protection includes: Full hood, full fenders, mirrors, front bumper and headlights. XPEL Ultimate’s special clear coat not only prevents the film from discoloring due to contamination and ultra-violet radiation, but also heals itself from swirl marks and light scratches that can occur through ordinary washing and drying or daily driving. You can rest assured that your film and paint will stay looking perfect due to the films mirror smooth finish! Let us show you what we did with our customers M4 Competition!
First we must wash the vehicle to make sure there are no contaminants or debris on the car before we lay the film.
Our customer purchased a 16′ Porsche Cayman GTS wanting to protect and keep his new car looking just like it did when he drove it off of the showroom floor. We recommended going with XPEL Ultimate self healing paint protection film on the front end to protect the car from the everyday hazards of driving. To keep the car looking like it did the day he purchased it, we applied CQuartz Finest ceramic paint coating to the entire car. He also wanted to make a few changes to the Cayman that we were more than happy to do for him! These changes included window tint, Rennline mesh grill kit and AWE Tuning wind deflectors.
Take a look at the final product. This Cayman GTS will stay looking like this for years to come!
One of our customers wanted to protect his brand new BMW M2 from all of the harsh hazards of everyday driving and the occasional track days. We recommended that he protect the entire front end of his M2. Full front end coverage includes the entire hood, side mirrors, front bumper, fenders, headlights and he also wanted to cover his a-pillars / partial roof. The first step of the installation process is to wash the car and bring it into our dedicated installation bay. This ensures us that no contaminates will get on the film or vehicle during the installation process. Also, during this process we use an alcohol based solvent to get any leftover contaminants off of the paint.
Now that the paint surfaces have been properly prepped and the vehicle is in our installation bay, it is now time to lay the film! A gel is applied to the cars surface to allow [...]
Our customer brought his brand new Alfa Romeo 4C to us for a number of services he wanted completed. First on the list, was to remove the already yellowing paint protection film that was previously installed on the vehicle. This is a common issue with lower quality film.
Now that the old paint protection film has been removed, we began the process for our New Car Prep. This step is necessary for all vehicles that receive a ceramic paint coating from us. This process decontaminates the paint surface while simultaneously removing swirl marks, bringing the paint to a high gloss finish and creating a smooth surface for the coating to adhere to.

"Shine performed an exceptional paint correction on my Viper. I will absolutely use them again for any future vehicles."Michael McGowin
Let me start by saying I am an EXTREMELY meticulous individual. I was a bit nervous turning my brand new 2015 C7 Z06 over to the guys at Shine, but the finished product exceeded my expectations.Ron Mowen
After owning my car for a couple years the paint and Xpel needed to be thoroughly detailed. This was not something that I was up to tackling as it's time consuming and hard to perfect. After seeing Shine Auto at a few racing events, I decided to give them a shot. If they can handle $200k+ cars, then mine shouldn't be a challenge.
Well I'm pleased to say that the car and attention to detail is beyond what I expected. The car was handed over looking better than new inside the showroom. After looking over the car, I was able to pick the brain of their detailer who was able to recommend the best way to maintain the car going forward. That to me is priceless and worth the cost alone. I will repeat and recommend this shop to anyone wanting to maintain the look of their car.Chris Humeniuk
I recently was looking for a new shop in the Atlanta area to work on my cars. I am very picky when it comes to my vehicles and I wanted a shop I could trust. I got a recommendation from a friend to check out Shine Auto. I met with one of the owners (Mike) and discussed my options. They were very thorough and took their time explaining all of the possibilities. I had them put the clear bra and Cc Quartz package on my Viper. They did such a great job that I brought my Hellcat to them for the same work. Overall I couldn't be happier with the results... I would highly recommend their services ! William Chopti
I brought my brand new ride to these guys straight from delivery and they made a brand new ride look even better! They installed a clear bra protection film, tinted my windows and applied a complete nano coating treatment! Now my Tesla stays show room new with such little effort and maintenance! Great group of guys with attention to detail!Win Fitz
Shine Auto Salon answered my message promptly with excellent customer service. They were able to wash and wax my e90 BMW thoroughly and suggested modifications that were in my range. I would definitely recommend Shine for your cosmetic and performance services!Brianda Traylor
My Dad recently bought a used Corvette. This has been his dream for as long as I can remember. It wasn't perfect, but he was in love. I wanted to surprise him with a detail service somewhere. I live out of state, so I reached out to some friends that live by him. Shine Auto was highly recommended, so I reached out. They made it super easy for me to surprise my Dad with a full detail, and they even corrected the issues that the cars paint had. My Dad said the car probably did not look that good even new. Thanks Mike and Crew!!Nicole Egbert
I have used Shine Auto Salon for a variety of projects across all my vehicles: from a full paint correction and PPF installation, to window tinting and simple wash/wax maintenance in both my Dodge Viper and Mercedes ML350. In all situations, the product exceeded all expectations. My ML350 was brand new when delivered to them, and they made it look even better than when it rolled off the showroom floor. I would recommend Shine Auto for all your detailing needsVijay Swami
It's hard to know who you can trust with your exotic... However, after meeting the owner Dan at a racing event. I just had the feeling that these guys would be top shelf.
I had my 911 taken to them ( by them ) and had a full paint correction done.
I had my apprehensions. How much better can you really make a new car look.... Well to my surprise it came back a whole different vehicle.
Paint correction , clear bra, and a Quartz sealer. It was an amazing transformation.
I know I will send them work again!!
