The general condition of a body of the car is one of factors which very strongly influence the car price. Body maintenance very simple, however, should be carried out regularly. The neglect technical service, especially after small damages, can quickly lead to further deterioration of a condition of a body and increase in cost of the subsequent repair. It is very important to watch a condition of those elements of the car which are not on a look, such as the body bottom, an internal surface of wheel niches and the lower part of an impellent compartment.
The main form of care of a body is washing – it is desirable with a large amount of the water watered from a hose. It will remove all dirt which could stick to the car. Dirt is necessary for washing away so that it did not scratch coloring. Wheel niches and the bottom of a body are also necessary for clearing regularly water to remove the gathered dirt which contains moisture and promotes formation of corrosion. As it is strange, but the best time for cleaning of the bottom and wheel niches is crude weather, when dirt damp and soft. At very crude weather the bottom is cleared of the most part of deposits independently, and this time is the best for survey.
Periodically, if only the wax sheeting is not put on the bottom of the car, it is recommended to clear the body bottom, and also an impellent compartment by means of steam in order that it was possible to carry out careful survey and to define, what small restoration or repair work is necessary.
Processing by steam can be carried out in many repair trucks, and it is necessary to remove all oil deposits which sometimes collect quite thick layer in some places on the bottom. If you cannot carry out processing by steam, use solvents with which it is necessary to process the bottom by means of a brush, the formed dirt then it is possible to wash away simply water. Pay attention that these methods are not recommended to be applied on cars with a protective wax covering of the bottom as it can be removed. Cars with such covering are necessary for examining every year, it is desirable before the winter period, at this bottom it is necessary to wash and restore a sheeting. In an ideal, it is recommended to put completely new sheeting. Also, it is recommended to use such wax covering for filling of panels of doors with it, powders, box-shaped sections for additional protection against formation of a rust if such covering was not put with the producer.
After the painted surfaces will be washed, wipe them suede for obtaining faultless purity of a surface. The layer of pure wax polishing will provide additional protection against the himikaliya containing in air. If paint grew dull or was oxidized, process it cleaning and polishing means for shine restoration. This operation is quite labor-consuming, however such dimness usually occurs because a regular wash of the car neglected. At work with the painted metal surface it is necessary to be especially careful as for its processing it is necessary to use not abrasive cleaning and polishing means not to damage polishing. Always check, that ventilating and drain openings and tubes were pure in order that water could flow down freely. Chromic coverings are necessary for processing the same as painted. Oil film which is often formed on a windscreen and glasses, it is possible to remove by means of a suitable cleaner for glasses. For glass processing never use wax structures or the chromeplated polishing.
