to sunlight and other environmental hazards will deteriorate quicker
and require significantly more cosmetic maintenance.

3. Always keep a good coat of wax or paint sealant on the car.

car from the elements, including sunlight and many other circumstances
that you will encounter, from bug carcasses to bird droppings.

Make regular quick inspections of your cars surface a habit. Look it
over and note its condition, keeping in mind its recent history and
what you anticipate will happen in the future.

5. Make a habit of detailing your car.

two weeks is better and necessary if the car is subject to harsh
