Car and Truck Paint Care

When you buy a new car, the paint is beautiful and perfect, no matter what the color is. The original color of cars does fade over time, and the inevitable scratches are going to happen no matter how hard you try to prevent them. That is sad, but true. However, there are some basic things that you can do that will help to prevent the paint from fading, as well as to repair the small scratches and dings yourself. It is amazing how much just a little basic care can prolong the life of your car’s finish.

Washing and waxing: Adhering to a schedule for washing and waxing your car can add years of life to the finish. All cars should be thoroughly washed at least once each week. Removing the dust and dirt that accumulates makes your car look shiny and new but just washing isn’t enough. A good coat of wax needs to be applied on a regular basis and according to the wax manufacturer’s directions. The car should be thoroughly washed and dried before wax is applied. Automotive waxes can be purchased in both liquid and paste forms.

Detailing clay: Just washing and waxing your car won’t remove all of the dirt. There will still be embedded particles in the paint. These can be fairly easily removed by using a detailing clay bar. Detailing clay is usually sold as part of a set that includes a lubricant. Carefully read and follow the directions for using these products that will be included in or on the packaging.

Using touch-up paint: Yes, you can touch up the paint on your car yourself, but you must be patient. Touching up paint is a process rather than a single event. The first thing that you need to do is to buy the right touch-up paint or touch-up paint kit for your car. An automotive paint store can help you determine which touch-up paint or kit that you need. Then it is vital that you very carefully read and follow the directions.

Most Wanted Accessories for Cars and Trucks

When you buy a new car or truck, you have options concerning which added features you want and are willing to pay for. However, once you have signed on the dotted line, there are still some accessories that you are probably going to want for your new ride.

Shopping can be a real pain to some people unless they happen to be shopping for accessories for their new car; then, shopping becomes an adventure and a pleasure.

One accessory that you are probably going to need as well as want is a car cover if you don’t have a garage. Everybody doesn’t have an enclosed garage in which to house their vehicles when they are not in use.

Subjecting your car to the elements 24/7 will dull the paint and make your new car look old before its time. It will likely take some time to find the right car cover.

You will have a great many choices, and the choice that you finally do make will probably be based on your financial situation. Try looking online and at auction sites like eBay. Don’t forget about the shipping charges, though, because they do add to the cost.

Another accessory that you may want is a set of wheels. Wheels make a ride personal. You are going to have to pay pretty dearly for the wheels you want, so don’t start shopping expecting them to be cheap. They aren’t. Do some serious competitive shopping for the wheels that you want. Prices do vary greatly.

Once you have invested more than a few bucks in a set of wheels for your ride, you will then want to buy some brake dust shield. There isn’t much point in investing the big bucks in great-looking wheels if they are going to look grungy, and the best way to keep them from looking grungy and protecting them from looking black and grimy with brake dust is by using brake dust shields.
