OK, so you survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday and got some of the coolest stuff for your family and friends to light up their faces this holiday season. Now what? 

Let’s get those gifts protected so they stay looking new! Our line of GTechniq Smart Surface Science products not only work on cars, but on almost every surface you can imagine. Check out some ideas below:

  • Everyone loves their Ugg Boots, right?  GTechniq I1 Smart Fabric AB will make water afraid to go anywhere near the boots. Just take a look at the video below.

New Milford, CT: GTechniq Crystal Serum Ultra Makes It’s Debut

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating | No Comments

Audi SQ5’s have a special place for firsts when it comes to cars that we are given the honor of working on. So far, we have performed New Car Prep and GTechniq Ceramic Coatings on the first 2015 AND 2017 Audi SQ5’s to arrive here in the United States. 

Here, while it may not be the first 2018 Audi SQ5 in the states (as far as we know), it is still a pretty impressive first. After we did some Paint Correction to repair some dealer installed swirl marks, this gorgeous car is the first car at Arkham Shine to officially receive our newest GTechniq Ceramic Coating, Crystal Serum Ultra. We could not be happier with the results, and the client could not be happier with a 9 year guarantee. 

Why use special camera filters when the combination of Arkham Shine’s paint correction and GTechniq’s Crystal Serum Ultra Black Total Protection makes your car look better than reality anyway? 

Is your new car looking like it’s new? It can look better.

Custom 2017 Porsche Macan Looking Better Than New

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating, Uncategorized | No Comments

When you get a brand new 2017 Porsche Macan Turbo, and it still isn’t good enough, you obviously add an insane Hamann Motorsports Widebody Kit. Still not good enough? Why not add a set of rims so custom that the only next step would be to hand forge them yourself! Once all that is done, you have to make sure it’s all protected properly, so Arkham Shine Auto Detailing Studio was called in to do the final car detailing and paint correction work, install xPel Paint Protection Film, and dip the whole car in GTechniq Crystal Serum Black for guaranteed ease of care and maintenance for years to come. 

How far did we go with this install? There is a TINY gap in the rims where the spokes meet the red barrel. This is a spot where dirt and brake dust could easily get stuck and start to deteriorate the appearance of the rims very quickly. We went in and individually installed GTechniq C5 Wheel Armor in the end of the spoke AND the drum so water will make anything trying to hide in the gap flow right out. 

Is your new car looking like it’s new? It can look better.

Arkham Shine and GTechniq at SEMA 2017

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating | No Comments

This year at SEMA, Kevin Awalt went with GTechniq as we unveiled our newest Ceramic Coating, Crystal Serum Ultra. Check out this video as Kevin presents The Man himself, Renny Doyle with his first bottle of GTechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. 

Read more about the release of Crystal Serum Ultra and call Arkham Shine Auto Detailing Studio at (860) 799-5403 or stop by our studio located at 90 Danbury Road in New Milford, CT 

Super ceramic coating launched to keep cars looking as-new. 

Formulators of the world’s best surface care products launch a new, revolutionary ceramic coating that will keep cars looking ‘as good as new’, at the SEMA Show, Las Vegas, USA, today (Tuesday 31st October 2017).

Gtechniq introduces Crystal Serum Ultra, a 10h paint protection for cars that offers matchless levels of gloss, surface slickness, swirl and chemical resistance. Keeping a car looking at its best and making it stress-free to maintain. Crystal Serum Ultra replaces Crystal Serum as the Gtechniq Accredited Detailer only, signature coating, with a nine year guarantee.

Rob Earle, Gtechniq managing director responsible for the development of Crystal Serum Ultra, said: “Crystal Serum Ultra is the best paint protection product that we have developed to date.

“By creating Crystal Serum Ultra we have introduced a new seven nanometer particle that works alongside an existing 20 nanometer particle, and increased the ratio of crosslinkers in the formula. This has resulted in a coating which has a reinforced top layer that will take everything life, and the road, throws at it.”

The molecular structure of the hard top layer of Crystal Serum Ultra is exceptionally chemical resistant, withstanding even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings. This super-strong top layer also reduces surface hazing substantially, helping to keep that mirror-like finish on a car’s paintwork. 

Crystal Serum Ultra is resistant to extreme heat changes, from -40 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius, this makes it effective in a number of environments.

Having Crystal Serum Ultra applied to a vehicle will make it a dream to maintain, but for the best in hydrophobic performance and ease of upkeep, it can be over coated with EXO Ultra Durable Hydrophobic Coating or C2 Liquid Crystal.

The nature of Crystal Serum Ultra means it cannot be purchased off the shelf, but has to be applied by a trained, Gtechniq Accredited Detailer.

2016 Chevy Camaro Corrected and Protected.

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating | No Comments

Do you want your car to be SO BRIGHT that you can’t even look at it in the sun? This client did.

After about a year of regular car wash abuse, the white on this 2016 Chevrolet Camaro had started to loose it’s natural shine. Even though there was no “visible from 10 feet away” damage, micro marring, discoloration and an EXTENSIVE amount of industrial contamination, the light was no longer bouncing off and blinding innocent bystanders as our client drove by them. After our Level Two Complete Detail, we dipped this car in GTechniq from top to bottom to make sure that she looked her best not only now, but for years to come, with no more automatic car washes. 

Classic Ford Mustang Shelby GT350-CR Detailed and Protected.

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating | No Comments

If you are a fan of classic muscle cars, or just a fan of fantastic looking cars in general, it doesn’t get much cooler than this. This 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350-CR was built by none other than the team at Classic Recreations located in Yukon,Oklahoma. If you are unfamiliar with who Classic Recreations is, think Nicholas Cage driving around in Eleanor in “Gone In 60 Seconds“, or Jason Giambi driving around in Eleanor’s more powerful older sister, Super-Snake. Classic Recreations is the team that builds those gorgeous recreations and many more. 

While this was certainly one of the most beautiful and well finished classics we have ever had the honor to work on, there is always room get that gloss up just a bit higher. After our Level Two Complete Detail,  we made sure this Shelby will always be able to stand right up there with her brothers and sisters and look great by installing the GTechniq Crystal Serum Black Total Protection Package. All paint has been bathed with Crystal Serum and topped with two layers of EXOv3 Hybrid Coating. Rims have been protected with c5 Wheel Armor. Glass has been coated with G1 Clearvision Smart Glass, and the interior will remain pristine AND germ free thanks to our interior protection featuring Bio-Cote

 

 

One thing all of us here at Arkham Shine Auto Detailing Studio would like to make clear. We get asked all the time since people see us working on cars like this if we will detail “regular” cars. Our answer is simple. Of course we will. We are just honored to be recognized as a leader in our industry and are given the opportunity to work on some of the coolest and well know cars on the planet because of the work we put into every vehicle that comes through the gates of Arkham.

New Car Auto Detailing Paint Correction for Connecticut

2017 Cadillac Escalade in for Level One Complete Auto Detail

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating | No Comments

This 2017 Cadillac Escalade is the perfect example of why you should have a professional auto detailer with a good reputation do the prep work on your new cars and NEVER waste your money on the “paint protection plan, environmental protection plan” or whatever they want to call it. 

This Escalade was brought to us with a ton of swirl marks already in it and the client was told they purchased the protection plan, but from day one, their BRAND NEW LUXURY SUV never looked right to them. 

After performing our Level One Complete  Auto Detailing package, the paint was then protected with GTechniq C2v3 Liquid Crystal Spray for 4-6 months of real world protection, even in Connecticut.

Nissan 300zx Corrected by Arkham, Protected by GTechniq in CT

By | GTechniq Ceramic Coating | No Comments

There is nothing like finding a classic car, with very low miles, that also has VERY little damage to it. The owner of this 1991 Nissan 300zx was super excited to find this yellow/gold classic with just over 12k on the engine and a body that had VERY little damage that was not easily taken care of. 

The gold and silver metal flake was made to stand out again thanks to our Level Two Complete Detail Package and the Rupes s.P.a Bigfoot System. Once we got the paint looking like liquid gold, we protected it with our GTechinq Crystal Serum Black package for 7 Years or more of care free maintenance for the owner. 

Call (860) 799-5403 or stop by the studio at 90 Danbury Road in New Milford, CT to discuss how we can give you REAL WORLD protection not only for those cars you have always wanted, but your every day drivers as well. 

Arkham Shine and GTechniq invade Gotham, CT for Batfest!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Well, it’s pretty obvious that this car show was right up our alley. On September 17th, Arkham Shine Auto Detailing Studio as well as reps from the Connecticut GTechniq Team turned Ocean Beach Park in New London into our own Private Gotham City Car Show. While the main attraction was obviously the Batmobiles, we had help from The Joker who donated his Ford Crown Vic, help from our dear client who showed up with her Dark Knight inspired Subaru Legacy and we even got a call from Knight Industries who showed up with none other than K.I.T.T. himself! (David Hasslehoff not included) 

If you look through the images below, you will also see “The General Lee” from “The Dukes of Hazzard”, and the Grand Turrino’s from Starsky and Hutch. 

This was an obvious blast for Kevin and his crew and we thank the people at Radio104 WMRQ for putting together such a great show.

The event was a two day celebration and helped to raise money for the Connecticut Special Olympics. The event itself took place at the  Polo Grounds in Farmington, CT.   By the end of the day on Sunday, over one million dollars had been raised in total. It is always an honor to support other detailers and represent GTechniq, but it’s even more important to be a part of such an event with a bigger purpose such as this.

The Cheeseburger Theory: You Get What You Pay For.

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

This is a written version of The Cheeseburger Theory podcast I did with Jimbo Balaam. To listen, please check below. 

THE PROFESSIONAL  AUTO DETAILING PODCAST w/ JIMBO BALAAM Episode Number 273. Recorded February 27th, 2017

      I know what a lot of you are thinking, what do cheese-burgers have to do with Auto Detailing. Well, for one thing, I love a good cheeseburger.  In fact, if I had to choose between a steak cooked by the top chef in the country versus a bacon cheeseburger cooked by the top chef in the country, I would probably choose the cheeseburger. Nothing makes me feel happier than a well prepared, loaded with onions, bacon, tomatoes, and horseradish mustard burger on a fresh baked bun that is partially soaked. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Throw in a nice dark lager to wash it down with, and I am in food coma heaven.

     The other thing, is what I like to refer to as “The Cheeseburger Theory”. The theory goes like this: I can walk into a local Burger King or McDonalds and say “I would like the cheeseburger. It will probably cost around a dollar, give or take, and it will be ready within a few minute. On the other hand, I could walk into the top steakhouse in New York City, and order a Cheese Burger, and it will probably cost anywhere from $40 to upwards of $100 . I have done my research, and there is even a restaurant in London that sells a Cheeseburger for $1768.  (Don’t believe me? Check out THIS ARTICLE.) The point is, at either place, I am basically saying the same thing, “I would like a cheeseburger”.

       From here, there are some obvious differences in the final product that I receive. Let’s talk about the fast food burger first. I have to walk in, or go through a drive through.  The person taking my order usually looks “half asleep” to say the least. I get it served to me on a plastic tray, wrapped in wax paper and I am CERTAINLY not getting my dark lager to wash my meal down with. I go sit down at a linoleum table on a plastic bench that are both usually bolted down to the ground. No one asks me about how my meal is, if I want my drink refilled, and there is certainly nothing relaxing about the environment.  This is about the atmosphere that my meal is served to me.

     Now, onto the actual cheeseburger itself. It’s prepared in a microwave with no skill involved. They are certainly not asking me how I want my burger cooked. If you start really doing your homework, you will certainly question if you are getting real meat, cheese, bacon, and other “food”. As a long time detailer, I have pulled out these “pieces of cheese, meat patty, and bacon strip” that certainly should have started to decay, but instead look like they belong in my daughter’s play food kitchen because they look the exact same way they did the day they were purchased.

     Overall, it’s a quick service, provided by people with little to no skill, a questionable end result that may temporarily make you feel good, but long term, you feel like crap. However, keep in mind, you still said; “I would like a cheeseburger”

     Now, let’s talk about the burger that costs $40-$75 range. First off, we’ll talk about the environment. You are probably lead to your (comfortable) seat and told that there is a delicious “cheeseburger” special today. There is real, metal silverware on the table, cloth napkins, and probably music playing in the background. Overall, if they are going to pull off an offering for a $75 cheeseburger, they had better make it a true experience for me. I am asked how I would like my cheeseburger cooked, what freshly prepared side I would like, and most importantly, what fresh, on tap, dark lager I would like to start my meal with.

     On top of the environment I am being served in, who is preparing me this magnificent burger? Probably someone who has had extensive culinary training or at least the preparation is being overseen by someone like this. The ground beef is top of the line kobe beef, I usually have my choice of cheese (Swiss cheese or Monterey Jack are my personal favorites), and it’s perfectly melted. The onions are sautéed before being put on, the bacon is cooked to crispy perfection. All of this is being done with top of the line restaurant equipment that is kept clean and in top working order so that meal after meal, the chef and his team can deliver the best results to any and all customers who come through their door.

     So, what does this have to do with auto detailing? I am glad you asked. Just like no one is out there saying EXACTLY what a cheeseburger has to be, even though there should be, no one is out there saying what EXACTLY your customers mean when they say “I want my car detailed”. On any given day, it can mean a run though a car wash and a coat of wax all the way up to a full 50 hour or more paint correction and coating.  To the professionals, we know what it means, but I am asking you to look through your client’s eyes. How can you explain to someone what the difference is between YOUR detailing service and the guy down the road to the general population that is still confused as to what exactly happens when you clay their car.

     Well, a good start would be to take a look at the environment your clients immediately walk into? Does it scream “Unprofessional, untrained, over processed service”, or does it give your potential client a feeling of exclusivity. Are you wax paper and linoleum chairs or are you dedicated servers and real silverware. Are you trained in what you are doing, can you prove it? Do you use the best equipment and products and keep them clean and well kept, or are you using whatever was the cheapest when you walked into Walmart? Are you showing your customer from the get go that you are the $75 dollar cheeseburger or are you showing them you are the $1 cheeseburger TRYING to be the $75.

      Another part of my cheeseburger theory should also mentally work in your favor. If a potential client walked into the New York Steakhouse and demanded they cook him the $75 burger for only $1 because “McDonald’s down the road serves it for a dollar” they would probably laugh at them and ask them to leave. I am not encouraging you to laugh at your clients, but you need to show them why it’s impossible for you to do the same work down the road because it’s not the work you do, plain and simple.

    Now, if you will excuse me, I am starving. I think I’ll go have a cheeseburger.

The importance of Car Detailing during the winter, especially in Connecticut

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s that time of year again here in Connecticut. The snow is on the ground, and that means the salt, ice melting brine and all sorts of other mean and nasty things are on the roads ready to wreck havoc on your cars, trucks and SUV’s. The car gurus at Road and Track magazine share their thoughts not only on the value of having your car professionally detailed, but talk about having a Ceramic Coating installed as well for some REAL protections from the Connecticut D.O.T. 

HOW TO TOTALLY PROTECT YOUR CAR FROM RUSTING OVER THE WINTER: Road and Track Magazine December 15th, 2015

Get your Car Simonized!!!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Arkham Shine Auto Detailing Studio is proud to announce that we are one of the first auto detailing studios in the country to offer Simoniz’s new ceramic coating and warranty program, “Simoniz Diamond Plate“. 

When it comes to the car detailing industry, there is probably one phrase that is said over and over again:

“I want my car Simonized” 

For a long time, this had a very vague meaning outside of the dealerships. If you picked your car up from a dealership, you could get a product called “Simoniz GlassCoat*” installed on your new car and you could benefit from anywhere from a 5 year to a lifetime warranty, and an easy to care for surface. (if the GlassCoat was installed properly or at all). GlassCoat is designed as a  “Dealership Only” program, and therefore small, independent detail studios were unable to offer this product. 

With the recent  emergence of the coating industry, Simoniz has reworked the formula for their “GlassCoat” and come up with a product not only designed for new cars, but used cars as well. 

What is Diamond Plate?

  • Simoniz Diamond Plate is a nano-ceramic polymer paint coating that is designed to improve the gloss and depth of our clients paint as well as give the vehicle a level of REAL long term protection
  • Diamond Plate‘s polysilazane coating is held together by silicon-oxygen bonds. These bonds are unaffected by ultraviolet rays. 
  • Polysilazane itself strongly reacts with the hydroxyl groups on the paint surface to form a chemical bond in it at millions of separate points across the surface. 
  • The Simoniz Diamond Plate program includes a 2 Year, hassle free warranty with one of America’s most well know insurance agency’s.
  • Installation also includes Simoniz VisionBlade. VisionBlade is a windshield coating that acts like Rain-X on steroids. 

What does Diamond Plate protect against?  

  • Acid rain and hard water spot etching
  • Bird droppings
  • Tree sap
  • Insects including Love Bugs (for you Floridians)
  • Aerosol and Graffiti spray paint 
  • Accidental paint over spray or sling up from newly painted road lines. 
  • Loss of gloss from fading or chalking due to exposure to the sun 
  • Damage caused by Road De-icing material

How does you file a claim? 

      Clients who purchase the Simoniz Diamond Plate system can easily file a claim on the Simoniz GlassCoat app available from The Apple Store or Google Play, or they can simply file a claim by visiting the SIMONIZ WEBSITE

* PLEASE NOTE: if you had an independent car detailer sell you a Simoniz Glasscoat, it was illegal and the warranty given will not be honored should anything happen to your car. Simoniz GlassCoat is a Dealership Only product and can not legally be installed outside a dealership.

Ceramic Pro Connecticut 

Introducing the most advanced coating system for the automotive industry. 

Ceramic Pro Ct is the new face of coating technology. Ceramic Pro is a multi-layered, clear, liquid nano coating. When cured, this advance technology transforms itself on the surface to a permanent, ceramic shield. Ceramic Pro can be described best as an additional layer of Clear Coat, with 3 times the hardness and self cleaning properties. 

Why YOU should get Ceramic Pro installed on your vehicles. 

First of all, it’s a great investment. The Ceramic Pro coating system will protect your vehicle’s exterior and interior from deteriorating for the life of the car. This makes the time you have the car more enjoyable and helps maintain the resale market value should you decide to get rid of the vehicle.  

Your car will look new all the time! Once the coating is applied, you will see an unbelievable level of gloss, mirror effect and color depth above and beyond what traditional waxes and paint sealants can give. The best part is that with very easy, proper maintenance, your car will shine for YEARS to come. 

Less maintenance. The slickness of the coated surface does not allow dirt, brake dust, tar, bird droppings or other environmental and industrial contaminants to stick to your car’s paint, rims and glass. This makes washing and maintaining you vehicle significantly less labor intensive and much less necessary. 

How is this possible? Once the Ceramic Pro has cured, it is measured to have a hardness of over 9h. Normal clear coat only has a hardness of 2h-4h due to environmental restrictions and manufacturers desire to make the vehicle as cheaply as possible. The 9h ceramic shield helps to prevent minor and major damage to your clearcoat by acting as a much more durable, sacrificial layer. Any surface scratches that happen to the coating are easily removed with minimal polishing which will not weaken the integrity of your original clearcoat. Also, with Ceramic Pro, your paint system will not fade or age due to the UV protection in the ceramic coating. 

Ceramic Pro is a one time application if maintained correctly. Once the Ceramic Pro coating system has cured, it can only be removed through abrasions like wet sanding or heavy compounding. This level of extreme protection puts Ceramic Pro in a category by itself when compared to traditional waxes and paint sealants which degrade quickly. 

Ceramic Pro also offers a warranty on the ceramic coating of your vehicle. They are sure that you will be extremely satisfied with the Ceramic Pro paint coating system. The extensive warranty covers damage to the clear coat due to most environmental and industrial occurrences.

GTechniq: Smart Surface Science

“Stop Waxing, Start Perfecting” 

THE GTECHNIQ STORY

GTechniq was born of pure science, a love of cars, and the desire to create the best car care products with a focus on protective coatings. Long term, durable protective coatings are the cornerstone of GTechniq’s success. 

In 2004, the scientists at GTechniq created a superior line of products aimed at perfecting all the surfaces of your vehicle. The result is a revolutionary line of surface protection for the broadest range of your vehicle’s exterior. GTechniq protects your car in a way that no traditional wax or paint sealants can match. The engineers and scientists at GTechniq tackle to toughest car care challenges and have introduced a line of products that not only outlast, but outshine the competition. 

“WOW, how did you do that?” is a very common reaction that we hear whenever someone experiences the result of a car that has been protected using the GTechniq product line. It’s called SMART SURFACE SCIENCE and it combines micro-abrasive finishing technology to get your paint system perfect and then protects the surface with unique bonding elements that actually forms a chemical bond with the surface of your vehicle. With GTechniq, wax is obsolete and replaced with a crystal coated shine. The result is a final product that not only looks almost unreal, but makes maintaining a better than showroom shine as easy as rinsing the surface. 

Once your car has been through our extensive Paint Correction and Car Detailing process, the paint is prepped to ensure proper bonding. Once applied, GTechniq will dramatically reduce surface damage from:

  • hard water spotting and acid rain etching
  • bird bombs (bird droppings)
  • tree sap
  • insects, including Love Bugs (plecia nearctia)
  • spray paint
  • damage caused by extended exposure to the sun such as fading, chalking, loss of gloss and clear coat failure. 
  • all road de-icing material (EXTREMELY important here in New England

     Let’s not forget about the interior of your vehicle as well. We believe that Interior Detailing and protection is just as important. Once your interior has been completely detailed with our systematic and complete interior detailing process, we can protect the fabric, vinyl, leather, and plastic against;

  • ultraviolet induced fading
  • cracking and loose seam stitching in the leather
  • permanent interior staining caused by food, drink, inks, dyes or whatever else may try to ruin your interior
  • ultraviolet induced weakening of the vinyl or leather that can result in punctures and tears.
