Mike and Pat Dalton started Quality Auto Trim in Spokane in March of 1980. Since the beginning, Quality Auto Trim has been family owned and operated, and this year we will be celebrating our 37th anniversary!
Mike started his business out of the back of his Ford Pinto station wagon, doing vinyl pinstripes for the car dealerships on Spokane’s Auto Row. His business eventually grew beyond pinstripes, and he opened up his first shop in 1986. The business expanded to include wheel well and body side moldings, running boards, trailer hitches and accessories, and of course, pinstriping. Quality Auto Trim eventually outgrew the first shop, so in 1990 we moved into a new, larger shop at the corner of Sargent Rd and 1st Ave. We grew yet again, and in 1998 we purchased a second shop on Sprague Ave. Sadly, in 2001 an electrical fire burned down the main shop and four other businesses along with it. We operated our entire business from our small shop on Sprague until 2008 when construction began on the current shop at 8710 E Appleway Blvd. Our new shop opened in 2009, and our services now include paint protection film, automotive window tinting, residential & commercial window tinting, vehicle wraps & graphics, car & truck accessories, and automotive detailing.
We’ve come a long way since the days of the Pinto Wagon, and we are very thankful for this new location, large showroom & shop displaying our many products. Plus, you can’t miss our amazing waterfall! We have always put the customer first, and it’s that “customer-first”, family business model that sets us apart from other companies. We want you to come back to us for years to come, as so many of our loyal customers have done. Thank you for helping us reach our 37th year!
