Business Description

Established in 2010, Capitol Shine provides top quality auto-detailing, paint correction and paint protection services with an extra emphasis on convenience in the Washington, D.C. Metro area.

What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?

Capitol Shine has been a leader in the automotive detailing community for many years due to our advanced detailing techniques, top-notch technicians, convenient locations and “customer first” mindset, as evidenced by our achievements including the Arlington Best Business Award, Angie’s List Super Service Award and “People Love Us On Yelp” Award.

Locally, we’ve worked hard to make a difference in the community by creating new jobs, partnering with other like-minded businesses and listening to what improvements would make life easier for our customers. Our shops are located near metro stops and customers can easily schedule on our mobile-friendly site, by phone or in person.

Nationally, our automotive blog has gained great success by offering tips and detailed information not restricted to our area. We receive many calls from people from all over the U.S. who call just to ask us detailing questions! Our motto is “Clean Car. Clear Mind.”


Protect Your Paint, Change Your Paint’s Color and More.

You’ve heard us talk about our paint protection formulas like Ceramic Pro and Opti-Coat Pro, but another option you may consider is Paint Protection Film. Capitol Shine’s films are extremely durable, can be removed and replaced, provide excellent rock chip protection and self healing effects.

Another reason our customers choose to wrap their vehicle in film is because of the variety of colors offered. Imagine changing your vehicle’s color while preserving the original paint underneath. The film can be removed at a later time and return the vehicle to its factory color. We offer different packages of film wrapping for different areas of your vehicle.

Paint Protection Film is a clear wrap applied to your vehicle’s paint to protect against rock chips. With a high-end film, having a scratch-free finish is even easier due to the self-healing effects. For a low maintenance finish with superior gloss, add layer(s) of Ceramic Pro to film and gain even greater protection.

Choose from 3M Scothgard Pro SeriesXpel Ultimate and Suntek. We offer 3 main packages:

  • Full bumper wrap
  • Full bumper | Partial hood | Partial fenders | Both side mirrors
  • Full Bumper | Full hood | Full Fenders | Both side mirrors

It’s important to remember that PPF works best on vehicles with the original factory paint or that of a higher-end paint job. For even more protection, consider adding a layer of Ceramic Pro or Opti-Coat Pro on top of the film.

Now’s the perfect time to let Capitol Shine apply paint protection film to your car, truck, van or SUV. All of our locations are indoors so don’t let bad weather keep you from scheduling your estimate. Head on over to our scheduling page to make an appointment. Please schedule at least 24 hours in advance to ensure time and date.
