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.
Have you recently purchased a new car and want to keep it looking just like it did the day you drove it off of the showroom? We have the perfect solution for you, it’s called XPEL Ultimate paint protection film! Our customer brought his 16′ Dodge Viper ACR Extreme to us wanting to protect his investment. We installed XPEL film on the entire hood, front bumper, rear quarters, mirrors, headlights a-pillars, partial roof and rocker panels. Check out the images below to see what the process entails and some final images.
Let the prepping process begin! Removal of certain parts allows us to hide the seams and achieve maximum protection.
Our customer brought his recently purchased, 95′ Porsche 993 Cabriolet, into our facility wanting us to bring it back to its highest level of conditions. We thoroughly assessed the vehicles current state and recommended a full paint correction. Along with the full paint correction, he decided to add a few additional services as well. We added a CQuartz Finest paint coating, replaced the rear wheel impact areas with fresh XPEL Ultimate film and conditioned his leather interior. Let us show you how we turned this tarnished 993 into a brilliant masterpiece!
Hello everyone! We wanted to share with you one of our recent builds we have completed. Recently, we had a customer purchase a used GT-R from us. He hasn’t even driven the car and wants to add more power! We suggested that he add the AMS Alpha9 Performance Package to his newly purchased GT-R. Without hesitation, he agreed and we began the tear down process. The customer will be bringing the GT-R back to us within a few months to perform more upgrades to maximize the potential this Alpha 9 Package has. Below we have listed the benefits and potential (with supporting mods) this package could achieve.

Since our roots started in the high end detailing community, we are pretty well known for it. When the introduction of any new sports car on the market, we always see an influx of them over the first few months. Now, we know that the M4’s from BMW have been out for many months, the last few months we have seen a huge influx of them. All of them wanting the same things. Our New Car Prep package, since no car is perfect from the factory. All of them wanted some level of Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film applied. Most of them got the entire front end covered, while a few got just the front bumper and rocker panels covered. No matter how [...]
Customer reached out to us to have his brand new Tesla protected to the extreme. He did not want to skip on anything. He wanted to make sure that all painted surfaces were completely covered and protected against rock chips in any direction. Prior to the Xpel Ultimate film going on, we did our New Car Prep package. This involved us doing a complete decontamination of the paint, followed up by polishing the paint to make sure the surface is in perfect condition prior to the Xpel film going down. This will result in a better prepped surface and the Xpel film looking better, as the gloss from the paint will help the Xpel film look even glossier. Once the Xpel Ultimate film was applied, we topped the surface [...]

"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!!
