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. HP Tuners came to us with their S550 Mustang wanting it to be perfect for SEMA. 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!

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 [...]
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!
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.
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!

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 [...]
