If you have a classic car, you want to be able to enjoy driving it. That means you want to keep it running well and looking great. Below are some tips that you can use for keeping your classic car in tip-top shape so that you can keep enjoying it for years to come.
1. Clean it consistently
Before taking your classic car out, you should have it hand washed. But you should clean it regularly. To give it a perfect look, making sure it’s clean is going to help with keeping the salt, grime, and other kinds of impurities from ruining your car.
2. Wax It
After your car is hand washed, you should give it a good shine by waxing it. This will help you show off your custom paint. Wax is the very best way that you can really make its paint pop. It’s a good idea to do it twice a year and polish the chrome on your car to give it a look that everyone will envy.
3. Protect its interior
Washing and waxing will have your classic car’s exterior looking great but you should also make sure that your interior looks as good. You want your passengers to marvel at its look. So you want to protect its vinyl or leather from stains and sun damage using vinyl cleaner, UV blockers and leather creams.
4. Change its fluids
You want to have your car looking good but you also want it to run well. That’s why it’s essential to have the fluids changed regularly. This will help your car not only look great but run great as well.
5. Pump its Brakes
When you pull up to a stop sign or red light and you have a loud engine and beautiful car, people are going to look. But if you’re having trouble with your car’s brakes squealing, people are going to laugh. So you want to make sure that you are maintaining your brakes and pumping them anytime you can so that they’re nice and smooth.
