Taking care of the bodywork

Taking care of the bodywork

Today’s short guide is going to look at your car’s bodywork and paint. Over the last few months we’ve covered all sorts of topics from winter car maintenance to taking care of your windscreen wipers. Although, we’ve touched on the subject of bodywork a few times, today we are going to dig a little deeper to help you get the most from your car.

A car’s bodywork says a lot about the vehicle itself. It gives it character and transforms it into something beyond just a simple car. How well you take care of the bodywork is all up to you, however if you want your car to stay with you for as long as possible, it’s better to invest some time into it now rather than later, when it’s too late.

When it comes to the bodywork, there are many things you can do to ensure that it remains just as it was when you first purchased the vehicle. It’s impossible to completely prevent it from deteriorating over the years, however you can do a lot by just caring for it properly.

One of the biggest mistakes that many people make is washing the car with substances such as washing up liquid and detergent. Since they are not meant to be used on a car, they actually do more damage than good. You want to make sure that you only use substances specifically made for the vehicle. They’re not too pricey and if you look well enough, you can probably find one at a very reasonable price.

Another thing than many people are under the impression of is that it’s okay to leave dirt on your car for long periods of time. For example, if a bird poops on your vehicle, don’t leave it till the next day, clean it up as soon as you can as the compounds found in bird faeces are bad for your car.

When waxing and polishing your car, remember to read the instructions clearly and understand the process before you attempt it. Going crazy with the wax can severely damage your car and it’s going to cost you more to fix than.

It’s much easier to prevent the bodywork from getting damaged in the first place, rather than fixing it down the line. Just remember to inspect your car regularly and fix/clean anything you find as soon as you spot it.
