Get Your Car Looking Great For Spring

March 30, 2020 12:35 pm Published by

Spring is here, and after the long cold of winter, we are itching and ready to get outside and enjoy everything that nature has to offer! From long relaxing drives down the back roads to spring picnics and getaways, there is so much out there for us to do right now. If you want to soak up all the spring fun this year, you need to make sure that your car is not only running its best but looking its best too. Here at U Pull And Pay, we know how important your vehicle’s health is. Having a clean and reliable vehicle can give you an immense amount of freedom, and the good news is that you can easily learn how to take care of your vehicle yourself, saving you hundreds of dollars every year. Here are three easy DIY projects you can handle to get your vehicle looking ready for spring.

Headlights

We’ve all owned a vehicle and watched as over the years its headlights began to fog up and become less and less effective. For most of us, the change happens so slowly that we don’t take the time to think about it much, but people looking at your car definitely take notice. Many dealerships will charge you hundreds of dollars just to clean up your headlights, claiming the job to be difficult. In reality, you can easily handle this project with a $20 headlight restoration kit, available at most automotive stores. These kits come with step-by-step instructions to help you navigate the process, though you should still use your owner’s manual to make sure that you are not doing any damage to your vehicle. All in all, this process should take just about an hour to do both headlights and can save you up to $500.

Exterior Cleaning

Now that winter is over, it is more important than ever to wash off your car and get all of the gunk and salt off your vehicle. Most cities use salt-based treatments to help keep the roads free of snow and ice, and although these solutions work well, they can be extremely dangerous to cars. Over time, salt will actively eat away at your vehicle’s paint and even the metal of your vehicle’s body or chassis. Make sure that you use soap that is designed to be used on vehicles, as dish soap can actually cause damage to your paint and finish.

Interior Cleaning

Once you’ve cleaned the exterior of your car, get out some wipes, cleaning solution, and a vacuum and get to work on the interior of your car. Start by removing the mats in your car and vacuuming both the mats and the floors and seats of your vehicle. Once you have removed any and all loose material, take out some leather or vinyl safe wipes and clean off the remaining portions of your interior. Don’t forget to check those hard to reach places like cup holders, under seats, and in seatback pockets.

You can easily beautify your vehicle and get it looking as good as new in just an afternoon with these three quick fixes.
