How to Keep Car Paint from Fading

Keep Car Paint from Fading
 
If you care about how your vehicle is presented, you’re probably concerned about keeping the paint looking fresh. Below are some simple tips for keeping your car paint from fading.
 
The easiest and most basic thing you can do is to ensure you vehicle is parked in the shade. If that’s not possible, then you should get a cover to block it from the sun’s rays. Ultra-violet rays will contribute a significant amount to fade, which is why it’s so important that you keep your vehicle out of the sun as often as possible.
 
Make sure you wash your vehicle regularly, particularly if your driveway is surrounded by trees. Debris such as salt, bird droppings and insects can slowly damage the paint over time, by gradually eating away at the finish. A thorough wash will help remove debris and keep your vehicle looking fresh.
 
Wax On:  Finally, waxing your car will give it an extra layer of protection, giving you more time before you’ll need a new paint job. Remember that polishing your car will wear away the finish, which is why waxing is the preferred method.
