long as possible. But life’s every-day doesn’t make that task simple. As car

here to help you with a few pointers to help you keep your car’s paint shiny
car’s paint job is made to stand up to a lot of abuse. But over time, small
rocks, rubs, scrapes and even sunlight can cause your car’s paint to look less
than its best.
no way to avoid all paint-damaging hazards, but one of the most important
things you can do is to avoid rough roads, gravel roads and construction zones
as much as possible. (Although, who isn’t already trying to stay away from
construction zones, right?) Keeping on smooth, clear roads will dramatically
decrease the amount of debris you encounter, which reduces the overall amount
of damage your paint sustains.
like photos and fabric, your car’s paint will fade and crack from exposure to
UV rays. Keeping your vehicle covered is the best protection.
keeping your car covered means parking it in a garage or carport. Under shade
is good, but be aware that trees introduce other paint hazards—like sap,
perching birds and falling branches.
- Wash carefully and regularly
keep your car’s paint looking fresh and new, wash gently. Use detergent
formulated for cars and soft, clean
sponges to wash and a clean chamois and microfiber towels to dry.
sure you wash your car either in the shade or on a cloudy day. Mineral deposits
from water drops left to dry can also cause damage to paint. And wash often
(but not too often—we recommend once every three months) because dirt left too
long on a car invites further damage.
- Choose the right repair shop
a vehicle’s paint is as much an art as a science. If you take your car in for
repair because it doesn’t look good, you don’t want it leaving with the same

great-looking paint job. To get the latter, bring it to Quanz.
