Paint Protection Film and Wraps
Protective films are applied directly onto sections of your vehicle that can become scratched and damaged such as the hood, bumper and fenders. They eliminate stone chips and scratches to keep your car looking new and protect against rust and corrosion. Vehicle protective films are clear and washable so they don’t interfere with the natural aesthetics of your car. Ever thought about wrapping your car? Car wraps come in any colour or funky design imaginable. They protect your vehicle’s paint for obvious reasons, by covering the paint with a protective layer. If you’re not happy with the colour of your paint, instead of repainting, check out your options for wrapping. With wraps, it’s possible to add anything into your custom design, including your company logo and contact information.
Prevent chips by clipping a leather bra onto the front grill. Be aware you need to remove this gear often to wash off debris and small rocks that can lodge in between the fabric and your vehicle. Making sure your gear is clean before clipping it back on, will go a long way to preserving your paint.
Good Ol’ Fashioned Washing and Waxing
Your new car or truck probably came clear coated direct from the factory, so waxing isn’t always necessary. Before you buy, you may want to ask the vendor any particulars about the paint. Wax protects against UV damage like fading and peeling and can prevent corrosive material from sticking to it and creating scratches. Keeping your vehicle under cover is one of the best ways to protect your car while in storage, but come spring, if you get the urge to Sunday-drive your ’57, you may want to give the paint a good wash and wax before you take it out on the road.
Regular maintenance is important!
However you decide to protect your paint job, regular car maintenance is important too. You may not see the brakes shining in the sun like your paint, but they’re certainly a vital component to safe driving. Keeping your car clean and well maintained will deliver a great driving experience and sense of ownership. Spring is on the way, so it’s a great time to start thinking about your annual maintenance routine.
