1.53. Care of the car

Care of a paint and varnish covering consists in a periodic sink of a body and restoration of the damaged sites of a paint and varnish covering.

For a car sink use pure water or water with autoshampoo addition.

The prevention

Do not dust also a dirt a body a dry rag – it is possible to scratch a paint and varnish covering.

Do not use for washing gasoline, kerosene, soda and sea water not to damage a paint and varnish covering, rubber and plastic details of a body.

It is impossible to wash a body in frosty weather and to leave on a frost on the car with a wet body: at water freezing on a paint surface microcracks can be formed.

It is impossible to apply gasoline or solvent to clearing of plastic details.

We recommend to wash a body in a shade as at fast drying of a paint and varnish covering under direct solar beams on a body there are light stains. If there is a possibility, wash a body with water from a hose and a soft sponge.

Carefully wash out junctions of details of a body and welded seams. At a sink подкапотного spaces water should not get on electric equipment elements. We recommend to use special means for engine clearing. After a sink blow or wipe dry electric equipment elements.

It is better to wash glasses with the soft rag moistened with water with addition стеклоомывающей of a liquid.

For cleaning of details of an upholstery of salon and seats it is better to use a vacuum cleaner. Fat stains from an upholstery delete a soap solution or special means.

The prevention

Do not use water for clearing of an upholstery of seats with electroheating.

Wheel arches wash with a water stream under pressure or a hair brush. The bottom wash with a hair brush not less often than an once in a year, it is desirable prior to the beginning of winter operation, before restoration of an anticorrosive covering. Periodically wash out the bottom and wheel arches during the winter period to clear them of salt.

Restoration of a paint and varnish covering of a body
The prevention

The gasoline which has got on a body, oil, brake liquid, electrolit, alkalis, soda solution destroy a paint and varnish covering. At hit of these substances immediately wash out and wipe a body a pure rag.

Do not store the car under прорезиненным a cover and do not put on the painted surfaces of a body subjects from rubber: they leave on a paint and varnish covering (especially light) dark stains which do not leave polishing.

The grown dull paint and varnish covering process полиролем, thereby you restore shine and заполируете microcracks. Small сколы and the scratches which have not broken a layer of a first coat, paint over a thin brush.

If the first coat layer is broken, smooth out the damaged place small granular наждачной a skin, having removed corrosion traces. The smoothed out place cover with a first coat layer (from краскораспылителя, aerosol баллончика or a brush). When the first coat completely will dry up, paint over the damaged place enamel.

If on a paint and varnish covering of the car bitumen has got, at once remove it uajt-spiritom or an autocleaner of bitumen stains. Bitumen causes occurrence of the yellow stains especially appreciable on a light paint and varnish covering.
