Keeping Your Paint Job Looking Perfect

Posted by Neal on 2/21/2014 to About Corvettes
When your Corvette's paint job looks amazing, it is important to take care of it to ensure your paint job continues to look perfect for years to come. Proper washing is essential to ensure the paint is kept in proper condition, and rust proofing is another useful step to take to further protect your car.

Basic maintenance is the best way to fight paint deterioration, and part of that involves washing. Avoid washing with rough cloths that risk scratching or introducing other imperfections to the paint, and instead opt for soft cotton or microfiber cloths. Only use soaps specifically balanced to work well with car paint to avoid any chemical damage. Drying is a very important step, so never skip it to save time. Dry your car thoroughly to avoid water spots that discolor paint.

Many types of paints and final coats are useful to reduce the risk of rust. These paints prevent rust and corrosion due to weather and wear. Preventing rust is much easier and more effective than successfully removing already established rust, so take time to add rust-proof layers to your paint job when possible. Keeping your car covered in all weather conditions, including sun, rain and snow, also helps to prevent the appearance of rust.

Washing your car properly and adding a rust-proof substance to the paint job are both essential steps in keeping the paint job of your car perfect. Basic maintenance, such as regular proper washing, allows you to catch any paint issues early for treatment and reduces the risk of serious paint damage.
