Car Body Shop High Wycombe

As lockdown rules ease you might find yourself using your motor on a more regular basis. Here are some tips to ensure your vehicle is safe to drive as the summer heat continues.

  1. The sun’s rays can damage the paintwork of your car. Keeping your car waxed will act as your car’s very own sun screen, helping to protect it from the sun’s heat.
  2. Parking in a shady spot is recommended, particularly if you have leather seats.
  3. Ensure your cooling system is in working order especially throughout the summer months. Keep it topped up with coolant and water and ensure vents aren’t blocked to avoid your motor overheating.
  4. If you have concerns about your air conditioning system not working properly, get it checked out as it could be that it needs recharging. Air filters could also need replacing to ensure better air quality.
  5. After months of lockdown and reduced driving it’s a good time to get your battery checked. The hotter weather in summer months make your car battery work harder.
  6. Ensure you’ve replaced winter tyres with summer equivalents as these are better designed to grip roads at a hotter temperature.
  7. It’s also important to check your tyre pressure throughout summer. Temperature change can alter tyre pressure, so regular checks can help prevent tyres wearing unevenly leading them to become less fuel-efficient.
  8. Be sure to check oil levels frequently throughout summer as driving in warmer weather can take its toll on your engine.

How to Clean your Diamond Cut Alloys

diamond cut wheel refurbishment high wycombeAs experts in diamond cutting alloy wheels, Auto Medics are here to tell you that a diamond cut wheel needs different treatment to a standard alloy wheel. Once the diamond cutting process has been completed the wheel is lacquered. If the lacquer is damaged this can affect the look of the wheel and even cause corrosion.

Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels High Wycombe

Repairing diamond cut alloys isn’t an infinite solution. Diamond cutting can only be carried out a certain number of times to ensure the structural integrity of the wheel remains.

This is why it is important to look after your wheels once they have been diamond cut and your friendly diamond cutting wheel specialist in High Wycombe, Auto Medics are here to share their advice. It is vital to keep the lacquer intact to avoid damage to your wheels and this means using or avoiding certain products and processes to maintain the just out of the showroom shine diamond cut wheels offer.

Top Tips to keep your Diamond Cut Alloys in Tip Top Condition

  • Start by rinsing as much dirt from your wheel using a hose.
  • Avoid using snow foams with colouring agents as they can stain diamond cut wheels.
  • Spray the tyre wall with wheel cleaner and tackle the dirt with a stiff bristled tyre brush.
  • Only use a pH neutral or pH balanced wheel cleaner as acid or alkaline based cleaners can discolour the surface of your wheel.
  • Remove brake dust accumulation with a fallout remover. Once this has worked its magic be sure to thoroughly rinse.
  • Use a mild shampoo as they don’t contain harsh chemicals found in wheel shampoos.
  • Using a wheel brush dunk it in a bucket of the water/shampoo mix and clean between the spokes, inside the wheel and then across the face of the wheel. Working from top to bottom. Don’t press too hard! And once again be sure to rinse thoroughly.
  • Use a microfibre cloth or an air blower to dry the wheel.
  • Protect your wheels with a wheel wax or sealant to protect them from environmental factors. Buff with a microfibre cloth.

COVID-19 Lockdown: How to Keep your Motor Roadworthy

Car Body Repairs High WycombeAt Auto Medics, we are available to collect and return your vehicle if your motor requires essential body work repairs. This ensures you stay safe and follow the Governments recommendations during the COVID-19 lockdown while ensuring the upkeep of your motor.

Lockdown Car Body Repairs High Wycombe

If you are uncertain of the rules surrounding using your car during this period or worried about how to keep your motor roadworthy, Auto Medics are here to clarify.

You should only drive your car for the reasons specified by the Government, these instances are limited to:

  • Unavoidable travel to and from your workplace
  • Shopping for essentials
  • Medical purposes

COVID-19 Lockdown

This means that our cars could be left unused for an indefinite period of time, which can cause problems when it comes to needing to drive again. In order to keep your car roadworthy for essential trips the following tips should help you through lockdown:

  • Maintain your car battery:
    • Start it up once a week and let it run for approximately 15 minutes
    • This will help increase the battery’s charge as well as circulate oil and fuel around the engine.
    • Avoid turning your car on and off quickly as this can cause issues for the starter motor.
    • Never leave your car running unattended.
  • Maintain the brakes of your car
    • Left for a long period brake discs can start to corrode eventually leading to them seizing up and requiring the attention of a mechanic.
    • To avoid this roll your car back and forth a few metres now and again.
    • This will also help prevent your wheels developing flat spots and your hand brake from sticking.

If your car MOT is due during lockdown, you should also be aware that from 30 March 2020 a 6 month extension period has been granted.

When you next need to drive your car, if it’s been a while since you last did so be sure to check the following to ensure your car is safe and roadworthy:

  • Fluid levels including oil, engine coolant, brake fluid and screen wash.
  • Gently try your brakes when setting off
  • Check lights are all working
  • Check tyres have required tread and are appropriately inflated.

First Class Diamond Cutting Service High Wycombe

diamond cutting service high wycombeAuto Medics in High Wycombe offer a diamond cutting service. Diamond cutting is a very skilled service using a specialist lathe. Many cars these days come with diamond cut alloys. You can identify diamond cut wheels by the very fine lines upon close inspection and the shiny appearance.

Diamond Cut Alloy Refurbishment High Wycombe

There aren’t many body shops in High Wycombe who can boast the technical skills or specialist equipment we have when it comes to diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment, nor do they have the exceptional reviews and customer service we offer. Using our specialist diamond tipped lathe we can create a high quality shiny finish (similar to that of the back of a CD), with a fast turnaround time too.

Diamond cutting requires a thin layer of alloy to be removed from the wheel using the lathe. This can only be carried out a couple of times as eventually too much of the alloy would be removed. Diamond cut wheels can be susceptible corrosion, at Auto Medics we always ensure these are lacquered to prevent corrosion for as long as possible.
