Recently had your vehicle resprayed? It’s looking pristine, but how do you get it to stay that way?
Cars are subjected to corrosive elements every day, making the upkeep of your stunning new paint job a real challenge. But never fear, by getting yourself into a maintenance routine, you can keep your motor looking its best.
Wash your motor regularly
It’s vital to wash any corrosive substances from the paintwork of your car as soon as possible. Bird droppings, splattered insects, tree sap, plants and fruits can lead to the corrosion of your paintwork if not cleaned ASAP.
Cleaning your car on a weekly basis can help avoid corrosion of your paintwork. Hand washing is preferable to ower washing, using a mild cleaning agent recommended for use on car paintwork, plus soft sponges and cloths.
Wax it up
Waxing your car will protect its paintwork, as it seals the top coat of paint. Twice a year is thought to be enough, particularly for cars kept in garages. Every 4 months is another suggestion, especially if your car is left outside to face the elements. To check whether the wax is still doing its job see if rain drips off the paintwork. If so, the wax is working to protect your paintwork from the elements, if not, it’s probably time for a touch-up.
Polish out scratches
For very light scratches you can use a polish that contains microfine abrasives. These gently clean the surface of the paint without causing damage.
For scratches that run a little deeper, it is best to have these removed by professionals, like the team here at Auto Medics. We repair paintwork and ensure colour matching for the make and model of your motor.
