Engine & Undercarriage Steam Cleaning
Doctor Detail has been performing this unique service for over 30 years. We started working with mechanic shops to detect oil leaks and at the same time, have eliminated unnecessary toxic cleaners and waste from going down our drains and into the ocean. Our undercarriage and engine steam cleaning service has expanded to the public and there is no appointment necessary. This service takes about an hour for the basic top and bottom. Undercarriage Restoration for vintage and classic cars is a service that entails a complete cleaning, scraping and steaming of old material and then spraying a fresh layer of hard shell undercoat to seal, soundproof and allow for a factory style finish. This finish can then be painted over for a factory look. The chassis, front end and rear end are also cleaned, scraped and primed, and sealed with factory match epoxy chassis paint. All brackets and small parts are sanded and refinished. The end result is a finish that looks very close to a frame off restoration at less than a third of the price in as little as 3 days. We find this service really changes the overall quality of a car and is necessary for any concourse event
Doctor Detail’s Vehicle Protection Plan:
Ceramic Polymer Coatings / Nano Coatings / Clear Protection Films / Window Tinting
Protecting a car from the start of ownership is key. Our new car protection plan includes our Ceramic Polymer Coatings or Nano Coatings, as well as Ceramic window tinting and Clear protection films.
Our goal is to keep your Vehicle looking better than new for the long term with minimal cosmetic maintenance. Please call to make an appointment for consultation and a price estimate for what best suits your profile.
Ceramic Polymer Coatings / Nano Coatings create a hard, glass like layer on the clear coat of your vehicle. This thick layer is composed of high grade silicium produced by a special chemical reaction at the time of application. It acts as an impenetrable barrier, protecting the paint from all adverse environmental affects .
Our Complete Detail is what Doctor Detail’s business was built on. This product is more popular with everyday people who care and love their automobile, and want to see their investment last.
Many who are getting ready to sell their car or preparing for a lease return also use the Complete Detail product. Detailing the engine, interior and exterior with attention to cleaning all areas, but also keeping in mind to not over clean an area that doesn’t need it. Our intention is to preserve your automobile.
For example, shampooing carpets that only need a spot clean is not preserving the carpet; it is actually hurting it more. Compounding or polishing too aggressively can harm the clear coat on the paint.
Most cars will need attention to all of these areas and Doctor Detail has all of the necessary professional equipment and knowledge to do this.

Exterior and Concourse Detailing
Our Concourse Detail was designed for show cars, but what we have found is that it’s definitely more popular with hobbyists, car club enthusiast and particular customers. This type of clientele is the core of this unique service. It ties in all of Doctor Detail’s services in one detail. A true concourse show car usually does not need attention of deep cleaning, removal of body parts, exterior or interior, they are what we call “Trailer Queens” and before a show they will go through an intensive detailing, but think of it as more of a body massage where all areas of the body get touched by a glaze, polish, or wax. A little paint brush here or there, some conditioner, etc.
Our Concourse Detail is taking that classic or modern classic with good bones – something that has true potential and making it a show car, without restoring it. An intense reconditioning covering the undercarriage, engine, wheel wells, doorjambs, interior and exterior. All of these areas go through a thorough detailing to a finished product.
