How to Protect your Car's Awesome New Paint Job

How to Protect your Car's Awesome New Paint Job
There's nothing worse than paying hard-earned money for a fresh coat of automotive paint to make your car look totally boss, only to have it damaged shortly thereafter. While acts of God can affect the handiwork of your favorite auto body shop paint expert, there are usually remedies for damage to a new paint job.

Here, are some of the biggest villains in the world of a car's paint, and some suggestions to undo or avoid their harm.

 Bugs, tree sap, and of course, bird dung all have three things in common. They can all fall from the sky, they're all nightmares for any motorist who's proud of his or her car's new exterior style, and offers some quick fixes for each. For tree sap and splattered bugs, it is recommended to apply a bug and tar remover as soon as possible. For bird mess, unfortunately, you're going to have to get your hands dirty and clean it off immediately.

Car Washes
The experts at advise strongly against going to a regular car wash, especially one that runs your vehicle through large brushes. Library of Logic points out that there's no way of telling how recently the brushes were cleaned, and if it's been a while, anything that was wiped off a previous car could easily find its way onto yours.

But in a worst case scenario where you absolutely, positively don't have time to wash your car yourself, tells its readers to go to a no-touch car wash, and tip attendants heavily. That's really the only way to improve their chances of not leaving any marks.

Gasoline Spillage
Unfortunately, one of the worst risks to paint is presented by something that's vital to its functioning. Gasoline, if it falls on paint and is left there for even a short period, gas can do notable aesthetic damage. Apply a product like Instant Detailer with a fresh microfiber cloth to wash off gasoline, ideally, the instant after it touches the paint.

Wiping in a Circle - Not
While cleaning your car in your driveway, it is import to drag the cloth across the car's surface in straight lines, as opposed to circles. Pressing a cloth too hard against a paint job can leave scratches either way, but circle scratches tend to stand out more. For automotive paint jobs that need a bit of a touch up, go on back to your auto body shop. They will be happy to repair car paint issues that you can't address on your own.
