Important Aftercare

After we’ve completed a high quality repair on your vehicle, we finish and polish it with industry leading products to ensure total protection and preservation. Follow these simple tips, to help keep your car bodywork in tip top condition:

Protect your paintwork

Make use of rustproofing agent. This is really helpful if your car is subjected to salt in the air specially if you live close to the sea (Southport). Rustproofing can help prevent rust build up and corrosion in your car’s body and under-chassis.

 

Wash regularily

Washing your car (at least once or twice a month ) helps to ensure that dirt, salt and other debris are removed from the painted surface. Over time, these elements cause staining, rusting and corrosion.

Wax your paintwork

Not only does waxing help to keep your car looking new, but it also acts as a layer of protection against corrosion.  Always use non-abrasive car wax. When waxing the car, use a large soft cloth to avoid scratches and make sure to only put it on the painted surfaces. After the wax has misted, remove the residue by buffing the surface with a clean, soft cloth.

 

Remove bird muck

Remove bird droppings as soon as possible. Autoglym found that bird muck damages the paint lacquer which naturally contracts and hardens around the deposits. To prevent this; soak the bird droppings with water, add a few drops of soap to be more effective, for a few minutes and then rinse off.
