How To Protect Car Paint

by | Apr 20, 2022

Keeping your vehicle under cover is one of the best ways to protect your car while in storage, but when spring finally arrives, it’s time to bring those classic cars out of storage and clean them up for the road. Washing road debris off your car is one of the best ways to protect your paint. Wax protects against UV damage like fading and peeling and prevents dirt from sticking and making scratches, but many new vehicles come out of the factory with paint protection already applied, so check your manual if you’re driving a new car.

Protective Film and Car Wraps

Protective films are applied directly onto sections of your vehicle with a focus on areas especially vulnerable to rock chips like the hood, bumper and fenders. Protective films are washable and clear so they don’t change the colour of your paint. If you’re off-roading with your pickup truck, protective films are an effective way to protect your paint job. Car wraps can be bought in any colour or artistic design you can dream up, so if you’re not happy with the colour of your paint, instead of repainting, check out your options for wrapping. With wraps, it’s possible to add anything into your custom design, including your company logo for marketing purposes. They’re great for protecting the original paint of your car in case you want to revert back to the original.

Regular maintenance is important!

Whatever method you choose to protect your paint, regular vehicle maintenance is important too. You may not see the brakes shining in the sun like your paint, but they’re certainly a vital component to safe driving. Keeping your car clean and well maintained delivers a great driving experience and pride of ownership. Spring is on the way, so it’s a great time to start thinking about your annual maintenance routine.
