Think pebbles and parking lot door dings are the only threats to your car's paint job? Unbeknownst to most, there are plenty of other threats to your Nissan's shiny exterior. Our experts at Kelly Car have listed down 5 common mistakes that could potentially ruin the paint job.
+ Spilled Gasoline
Accidental overflow when filling up your gas tank is a guaranteed way to damage your car's paint. Spilled gasoline will leave a stain on your car that is almost impossible to get rid of. However, if you do spill gas by accident, your best bet is to grab a bottle of instant detailer and a clean microfiber cloth and wipe the gasoline before it does further damage.
+ Coffees or Sodas
Driving with your fizzy drink and a cup of coffee on your car roof not only ruins your clothes, it also ruins the paint. Since beverages are acidic and acid can harm your car's paint, get it washed as soon as you can. If you do not have time to visit a car wash, get hold of your bottle of detailer and microfiber cloth and wipe it up.
+ Bird Poop
Bird poop is acidic in nature, other than being repellent. Notice the number of ruined statues in cities infested with pigeons and you will understand what we are trying to say. They can also scratch your paint since they eat gravel and seeds. To avoid it, wash turds as soon as you can.
+ Unseen Dirt
The most common mistake while washing a car is dropping your sponge on the ground. Even the most expensive wash mitt can be ruined this way since it picks up bits of sands and grains which cannot be washed off completely, leaving swirl marks and scratches on the car. It is advisable to keep spare washing mitts in order to avoid the expense of getting your car repainted.
+ Writing or Rubbing on Car
Its fun to write or draw pictures on a dirty car; these messages however, can leave their mark. When dragged across paint, dirt can act like sandpaper making the marks last even after the dirt is gone. To prevent that, keep a duster and wipe your car daily to prevent sanding. Mostly, small scratches come out with a scratch remover or polish.
