Covering up scratches is easier said than done and specialty kits don’t always get the job done. While touchup paint is an option, it’s often noticeable, even from a distance. A blemish on your otherwise perfect car is no good, and if it’s a large scratch, you can bring it in to our service center. But if it’s something small, you can fix it yourself. Here’s how to remove scratches using things found at home.
Before you get started, check how deep your car’s scratches are by dragging your fingernail over them. If your nail gets caught, the scratch may be too deep to fix at home. Clean the scratches so there’s no dirt or grime around them otherwise it could get rubbed into your car’s paint.
Once you’re ready to get started, grab a tube of toothpaste and a damp, soft cloth. Add a few dabs of toothpaste to the cloth and rub each scratch in small circulation motions. Depending on the size of the scratches, the result could be immediate or you may need to keep rubbing for a few minutes.
To speed up the process, use a drill with a buffing attachment. To check if the scratches are gone, lift the cloth. Once they’re gone, you’re all done!
Fall is finally here. That means that winter is just around the corner. Before winter’s worst comes to cause trouble for your car, there are certain measures you should take to prepare your vehicle for the nasty weather. Here are four fall car maintenance tips.
Fall means falling leaves. Make sure that your windshield wipers are in top shape to brush those dead leaves away.
Cold autumn mornings could mean a layer of frost covering your windows. If you don’t have a properly functioning defroster, it could take quite a while to scrape away all those layers of frost.
Don’t wait until the roads are slick to check your tires. Take the preventative measure of checking them during the fall.
Winter can be brutal during your battery. That’s why it’s important to make any needed repairs or adjustments before the weather gets too frightful.
The summer heat comes around this time every year but it seems many people just aren’t ready for it. Climbing into a hot car after a long day at work is absolutely miserable. Thankfully, there are ways to keep your car cool and cool it off faster. Some of these ways may be obvious, but others are probably new for you. If your car just refuses to cool off, you should bring it in to our Service Center for a check up.
