How To Keep Your Car’s New Paint Looking Great

Wash Gently

collision repair As soon as you drive away in your freshly painted vehicle, you can wash it regularly. Just be careful to use a soft cloth or a brushless carwash.


Standing water drops on your car can damage your car’s paint in the summer. Water drops in strong sunlight can have a magnifying effect, burning little sections of the paint with the sun.

Don’t Wax

During the 90-day curing period after ABRA Auto’s paint job, avoid waxing the vehicle. After the initial 90 days, waxing your car will keep the paint looking fresh.

Park Properly

Wherever you go, try to park the car in a cool, covered area. This will help you avoid bird droppings, tree sap, scorching sunlight, and other variables that can stain or burn the paint.

When you need a high-quality paint job, trust the collision repair experts at ABRA Auto to do it right. To learn more about the automotive repair services they offer, visit them online.
