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.
Better performance than any supercar available
Capable of Over 205mph in the standing mile
Reliable 500+ horsepower increase over stock
OEM-like fit and finish
115% gain in horsepower with stock-like drivability

We are the Premier Sponsors for the Georgia events, as we always have one hell of a showing. For the May Wanna Go Fast, our shop car driven by Dan Fox, built by Nth Moto, set the world record for the 5th generator Dodge Vipers by going 203 mph. Along with winning 6 classes, we had one hell of a showing. With an arrangement of cars from your daily driven BMW’s, to over 5000 hp of customer owned Lamborghini’s sporting tons of twin turbo power, plus a few Dodge Vipers…it was something for everything.

Owner sought us out to bring his 1969 Z28 RS up to the level, a vehicle of this condition, deserved. Owner wanting a complete show level detail done and every area of the car touched. We stored the car for a month prior to working on it, till we had a complete week open to work on the car. Once started, it was a very long journey that ended with this Camaro looking better than it ever did leaving the show room in May of 1969.
After seeing the car, we decided to go with our Full Correction Package. After doing the full correction and bringing the condition of the vehicle up to better than new, the owner wanted everything coated to help preserve the job and maintain the look for years to come. We coated nearly every inch of this car. From the paint all the way down to the full interior. CQuartz Finest [...]
This was a customer of ours from Tennessee. He drove 3 hours down to leave with Stingray with us to get our Entry Level Full Detail Package & CQuartz Finest paint coating. Owner wanted this limit color, Velocity Yellow to look the best it could. While it was here, we also had the wheels removed and completely coated in CQuartz Finest as well. This will help in the future for brake dust and grime from sticking to the wheel. While the wheels were off we also preformed a Suspension Detail to make the car as a whole look brand new.
When the owner arrived back a few days later to pick up the car. We were out front taking pictures of it. He was immediately blown away with how much more glossy and bright it was. Kept saying “I need to wear my sunglasses just to look at it. Wow!” Which he was right, this [...]
A customer of ours from Chicago, IL contacted us about having his Performantes’ paint restored while it was down here in Atlanta. Car was new to the owner and was evident that is had never seen any sort of detailing in its short life. The only thing this paint had been detailed with, was most likely, hundreds of automated car washes. We went with our Full Correction Package as that would be the only thing that would bring the level of the paint up the type of vehicle it was. Once our Full Correction package was preformed, we then topped the paint with CQuartz Finest. When you want your paint to look the best it can, for many years, CQuartz Finest is the best choice you can make.
Once we got the car, we saw just how bad the paint really was. It was also evident that the old paint protection film that was [...]
Customer brought us his 1999 Dodge Viper ACR. It was a new to him vehicle and the previous owners never took care of it. The paint showed many years of neglect and looked as if it had been washed with a brillo pad for most of its life. The owner wanted us to bring the vehicle back to life. Doing our Full Correction Package and CQuartz Finest application to protect the paint after detailing. We took the seats out of the interior and shampooed the carpet. With the seats out, the owner decided he also wanted to bring the seats back to life. After a good cleaning, we also decided to give the seats years of protection by coating them with Optimum Leather Coating. This gave the seats a deep black look and will help protect them from years of grime.
Here at Shine Auto Salon, we do what he can to make our [...]
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.
