In addition to making your vehicle look great, exterior paint is the first line of defence against rusted body panels. Thus, it is important to keep your vehicle’s paint job in good condition. Here are some tips to keep your car’s paint job in top shape this summer.
If parking your car in a garage isn’t an option, try parking it in the shade or use a car cover to protect it from sun exposure, which can damage your car’s paint. Car covers offer a thin layer of cushioning against light impact, like hail or a tipped bicycle, as well as protecting against the sun’s ultraviolet rays, bird droppings, sap, and rain.
Waxing your car regularly is an important step in caring for the paint, as the wax creates a hard, protective shell against the elements. While waxing your car can be a time-consuming process, the hard work is always rewarded. Liquid and spray waxes offer a quick shine, but do little in actually protecting your car, so paste wax is still the best option to get the most durable finish. When selecting a paste wax, try to find one with a high carnauba wax content.
Consider these tips to get the most out of an afternoon spent waxing your car.
Prevent, Don’t Repair
The best thing you can do for your vehicle’s paint is to keep it newer, longer. You do this by preventing damage before it happens, instead of trying to repair and mask carless damage after the fact. For this, your best option to protect your car’s body panels is to give it a new skin. Paint Protection films are designed to protect the exterior of your vehicle from chips and abrasions. These films can be washed and waxed along with the rest of your vehicle, and are simply removed at any time if you decide to get rid of them. To ensure proper installation, it is best to have them put on by a professional. Our installers do this all day, and as trained technicians in the autobahn™ program you will enjoy LIFETIME WARRANTY on their work. That is how good they are.
