“Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car.” – E. B. White
Our cars and how we look after them say a lot about us. For some, cars are just a necessity, a way to get where you need to go. No more, no less. However, you cannot deny that no matter how uninteresting you find cars; the better you look after them, the longer they’ll last.
That goes for aesthetics as well as mechanical maintenance. If you keep the exterior of your car in good shape, it bodes well for protecting what’s going on under the bonnet.
Need some car maintenance tips? You’ve come to the right place.
Why Polish Your Car?
Polishing your car is a great way to protect it from the elements and it’s cost-effective. Taking pride in your car and how it looks won’t just make you feel better stepping out of it but should you decide to trade in or sell your car, a better exterior means you’ll fetch a better price.
How To Get Rid of A Scratch On Your Car
There’s nothing worse than knowing there’s a scratch on your car. No matter how small, the fact that we know it’s there can drive some of us crazy. The great news is that you don’t always have to go to a garage to get rid of the damage.
Depending on the depth and if the scratch marks are fine, they can be compounded out and polished over. Deeper scratches may need to be filled in with paint and lacquer. When fully dry, they can then be compounded and polished. Polishing after the fix is important to protect against UV lights and acid rain
