4 Paint Care Tips To Keep Your Car Looking Good (CARSmetology Series Pt.4 Protection)
I know the ladies will get this and the fellas can appreciate the analogy since we all want our ladies (bikes and rods for some of us..lol) to have radiant, healthy looking and beautiful skin (paint), therefore consider this. The same process it takes to keep your skin looking young, vibrant and healthy, is very similar to the attention and care required to maintain the smooth, deep and lustrous shine of your car’s exterior.
Paint, like skin, covers and protects the body of your automobile. It keep’s the elements from getting to the metal underneath and causing damage, like rust and corrosion. Paint also adds to the car’s aesthetics and when it’s well kept, it enhances the appeal and protects the value of your investment.
As with the 4 basic skincare needs that include; cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize and protect, paint-care needs are similar. The steps include; wash, clay, polish and protect.
STEP 4 (The Final Step): Protection
Many car owners are not aware of or they underestimate the importance of waxing their automobiles. If you were planning for a sunny day at the beach, one of the first things you would do is apply sun screen to shield and protect your skin against the harmful UV rays that can burn, wrinkle and cause other forms of damage to your skin over a period of long term exposure. Your vehicles paint goes through a daily assault of weather conditions, including rain, snow, wind, and of course the sun. Coating your car, truck or SUV with quality wax or sealant will help protect it. Also remember, it’s the things you don’t see that get’s imbedded in your car’s paint, like tar, bugs, industrial fall and other contaminants. If left unchecked the unprotected paint will eventually fade, crack and or chip.
Have some pride and protect your ride with wax or a synthetic sealant to keep your whip appealing for as long as possible. It will add up to more dollars and cents when you get to a point in the future when you want to trade or sell.
Remember, you made the investment when you purchased your vehicle, if you do not maintain the appearance it will cost you dearly in the long run!
Until next time,
