It can’t be denied that a car which has its paintwork maintained properly will always look younger than a car which has got numerous scratches and chips all over its body. There are some car owners who are very particular about the way their cars look and they are often seen to park their cars in far-off spaces where there will be no inconsiderate owners who won’t be able to hurt their car in any small way. Even if there is an accident which leads to a mark or two, they carefully take steps to remove every single mark.
While there are popular paints for cars like exact match spray paint which can help you in retaining the lost glow of your car, there are many who make a basic mistake as long as maintaining their cars are concerned. Here are few car maintenance tips that you should take into account to make your old car look new.
Don’t use swirling brushes for your car
There are few brushes which are called swirling brushes and this is just what they will do to your coat of paint. Though you may not notice it, you will soon find a whole new swag of marks all over the paintwork on your car. These types of brushes in the car washes are cleaned very rarely and hence there is grit, debris and sand that are always accumulated within it. So, whenever you move the brush over your car, all the dirt is passed on to the paint of your car. Hence, you should use the right wash.
Clean everything that can be cleaned
No, by ‘cleaning’, we don’t mean a superficial job of quick cleaning but a hard scrubbing of each and everything that is there within your reach. The upholstery and carpet can be shampooed, the trash that lies accumulated in the trunk should be excavated and all the spare car parts that you find in every nook and corner of the tire well should be removed. In case you have enough technical knowledge, you can even take off the front seats and vacuum the place underneath the seats.
Update the electronic system of your car
If you want your car to look new, you should also keep updating the sound system that lies outdated. Do you have a rather old radio unit that no longer integrated with iPhone and iPod? If answered yes, it’s high time you trade it for a new one which comprises of a bluetooth connection and which will change the overall look and feel of your car to make it modern.
Hence, if you’re looking forward to maintaining the young look of your car, you should take the above listed tips into account. Take your car to the mechanic at times so that they can give you a professional outlook.
