    They did an awesome job. I'm very particular about the method and thoroughness of the work. They met and exceeded my expectations. My car didn't look this good when it was driven off the lot. And done in a way not to harm the clear-coat of the car.

    Keep up the good work Joe!

    Superior Shine is the best detailing company! I searched for years for a good company and finally found Superior Shine. I have three cars that are all my babies (especially my Corvette), and I am *very* picky! Joe and his crew never disappoint. I am always extremely happy with their work! I highly recommend Superior Shine for your detailing needs.

    Jose saved my new car! Right after I first bought my Pontiac Solstice in 2007, rain washed eucalyptus oil onto my car and stained the finish. Neither myself nor my dealership could repair the damage. A friend heard good things about Superior Shine on a car forum. So, I gave Jose a call, he came to my work to check out the car and said "no problem". He worked on it a week later and it looked better than when I got it from the factory! I've been going to him ever since for regular care of my baby and I highly recommend Jose and Superior Shine.

    Best place I've got my car detailed at. Seen their pictures previously of the work they do but even as good as the pictures are it doesn't do them justice. Great Work!!!

    Joe has been detailing our vehicles for around 10 years. He is a phanatic about the quality of his work, and often ends up fixing botched work done by his competitors. If you want the best, call Joe.

    i have been a customer of joe's for years now and highly recommend him.
    i am fanatical about maintaining my mercedes coupe in like-new condition
    and joe knows and understands this. at each visit joe will go over the
    car and correct what needs correcting then clean the car both inside and
    out, from the wheel rims to the interior carpet and everything in between.
    i almost don't want to drive the car for a few days for fear of getting it
    dirty again!

    for the car guys/gals out there that want to keep their ride lookin' good,
    joe is the man. he is a great guy to do business with. give him a call, you
    will not be disappointed.

    I work at an air traffic control tower. A painting crew sprayed without advising to move car. My car had overspray on every section with heavy duty industrial paint meant to adhere and last on metal against the element for a LONG time.
    I did extensive research and made numerous calls. Most places wouldn't even try to remove it.
    Joe came to my workplace and labored over my car for hours, never rushing, using the utmost care. My car looked better than new!
    Joe knew I love my car (2005 GTO) and has my car on his website.
    I would recommend his service ability, and him personally as a man who truly loves his job.

  • 5/5 stars February 15, 2011

    If you want a quality detail on your car, then call Superior Shine Auto Detailing. I have never seen a better job done on my truck. Joe has unbelievable experience and knows exactly what he can do for your vehicle, he tells you true expectations and he explains with clarity the situation on your vehicle's paint. I have not used anyone since using Superior Shine and will never change. The results are nothing short of showroom quality - actually the results are better - "show car quality".

    You pay for for you get - well worth the price! You pay, for attention to detail and he treats you car like it belong to him! He arrives on time and is always prepared to do his job to completion! Due largely in fact that he served in the Marine Corp. - he is committed to his craft!

    Superior Shine approach my non-profit, Angel Flight West, and over the past year has donated several outstanding wax jobs to members. In addition they did a "superior" job on my plane. Their commitment to excellence, their follow-up and their customer service are top-notch. I would highly recommend them to anyone who cares about how their transportation is maintained and treated.

  • Jose Fernandez of Superior Shine to Restore Historic Presidential Aircraft for Seattle’s Museum of Flight

    ARCADIA, CA Aug. 5, 2011 –

    Jose Fernandez of Superior Shine Mobile Auto Detailing joins a handpicked team of thirty detailers who will travel to Seattle the week of July 25 – August 1 to restore two historic paragons in U.S. aviation history. The first presidential jet plane (Air Force One) known as SAM (Special Air Missions) 970 was a flying Oval Office for four U.S. Presidents including Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. The Boeing ...also entertained many international VIPs such as Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger. The team will also refurbish a rare WWII B29 Bomber known as T-Square 54, both of which are on exhibit in Seattle’s Museum of Flight.

    Renny Doyle, owner of Attention to Details, a master-level detailing training facility located in Big Bear, California, organized the pro bono event, selecting the best thirty detailers out of over two hundred fifty of his graduates worldwide. Doyle, who specializes in detailing high-end automobiles and private/corporate jets, restored the deteriorating exterior of Air Force One in 2003. “It made my career due to the level of workmanship I delivered,” Doyle says. “I wanted to offer that opportunity to the many small business owners we train, with hopes they receive the same level of success and recognition for excellence I did. The detailing industry is often thought of as very blue collar, but those chosen for this project are the best of the best in terms of workmanship and professionalism.”

    Detailing airplanes is all in a day’s work for Jose Fernandez of Superior Shine Mobile Auto Detailing, who specializes in detailing high-end mobile machines of all types including exotic and classic cars, boats, RVs, and airplanes. “I am extremely privileged to be included in this group,” said Fernandez, who will be leading the projects team as the #2 man. “This team is the best in the auto and aircraft detailing industry, and working side by side with professionals of this caliber is an honor in itself, but to work on such an historic project will be the pinnacle of my twenty-five-plus years as a detailer.”

    Fernandez explains how tedious the Air Force One reconditioning will be, “The painted and bare aluminum surfaces of the aircraft will degrade if not properly cared for. The team will polish the various surfaces to their original condition before applying a protective barrier on the finishes to preserve them.”

A. Recently we were contracted to polish a World War II B-17 bomber. There are only about 12 left that are airworthy. We were flattered to have been chosen to polish the aluminum skins on A B-17 named "Fuddy Duddy" at the Lyons Air Museum in Orange County California. Even though it was a very challenging project, we accomplished it to much praise and had a lot of fun !
