People ask us all the time if coatings really are worth it. I always give the same answer of, “If you really want to get the most bang for your buck. Really want to take your paint to the next level. Really want to make maintenance a breeze, then absolutely.” A customer of ours, who is a firm believer in the coatings, has it applied to all of his vehicles. The first vehicle he ever had done with us was a 2012 Nissan GTR Black Edition. He had it applied in November or December of 2011. The owner has done nothing more than keep his vehicle washed regularly. He contacted me and decided to bring it in, to have the old coating stripped off and reapplied. Since it had been so long, he had gotten his monies worth and wanted to get the car freshened up.
A customer of ours from Southlake, TX dropped their “new to them” 1988 Turbo Slantnose off to us on its way from Atlanta. This car had never been detailed properly and was in bad need of our Full Correction Package. These cars are extremely rare, with only 147 being made in 1988. Less, 60, being made in 1989. It was a privilege working on this car as a real one is extremely rare to come across. This car had a massive turn around and really came out looking phenomenal when it left.
How the paint looked in the sun prior to any work being done. The car looked great from 10-15′ as it was well kept and waxed. But up-close in the sun…was a different story.

Customer brought us his GTR that was in need one some serious TLC. This GTR had a PPF Kit done by another shop that was nothing short of horrendous. Customer wanted the old kit stripped off and the full front end done. On top of the PPF work, the customer wanted to have our Full Detail Package done to clean up the holograms induced by previous detailers and to remove a good percentage of the scratches. Once done, the customer really wanted to have great protection to the rest of the paint. Customer decided to go with our CQuartz Finest coating. This really make the black paint look wet while allowing the flake to really pop in the paint.
Below shows how the original PPF was done by another shop. Film did not go anywhere close to the edges and left many exposed areas. Even have very large patch pieces that easily showed from [...]
This 2014 Dodge Viper TA came to us with only 213 miles on the on the odometer. The owner brought the Viper to us in Cumming, GA. The vehicle had been previously detailed new and was not done anywhere near to the owners satisfaction. We spent 25 hours going back over the paint doing our Full Correction Package.
Below is how this Dodge Viper looked when it was dropped off to us. Even at this distance, the paint does not look like it should.
Paint is looking a little dirty.
Here in the sun, you can see the damage done by a less experience detailer. Prior to washing the fillers out of the paint, we can still tell the level of work we will be needing to preform.
Many of our customers bring us new vehicles. Many people ask us why we do so many new vehicles. What some do not realize is that, even from the factory or dealership, scratches and swirls can be induced and take away from the finish of a brand new vehicle. Sometimes vehicles will need some level of correction to bring the beauty of the color up to ours and the owners standards. On the rare occasions, vehicles will need our Full Correction Package. It is always best to bring a new vehicle to us to give you our recommendations on what the vehicles need.
With many new vehicles, they are not only brought to us to fix the issues that were present when new, but also to give them a good start in life. It is always best to keep your brand new vehicle looking brand new for years to come. With our Paint Protection [...]

"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!!
