GENERAL INFORMATION

The state in which there is a body of your car is very important because its cost to a large extent depends on it at resale. It is much more difficult to repair the started or damaged body, than mechanical parts. The hidden cavities of a body, such as niches of wheels, a frame and a motor compartment are also important not less in spite of the fact that they do not require frequent attention as other parts of a body.

Once a year, or each 20 000 km, the body bottom by means of steam is very useful to clear. All traces of dirt and oil will be removed, and after this area it will be possible to check for existence of a rust, the damaged brake highways, worn-out electric wires, the damaged ropes and so on. At the end of this work components of a forward suspension bracket should be greased.

At the same time clear the engine and a motor compartment by means of a paroochistitel or the device for lubricant removal.

Special attention needs to be paid on niches of wheels as the substrate can exfoliate, both the stones and dirt which are thrown out by wheels can damage paint and allow to appear to a rust. If you found a rust, smooth out the damaged surface to the metal and apply on it anticorrosive paint.

The body needs to be washed, at least, once a week. Carefully wet the car to soften dirt, and then wash away it by means of a soft sponge and a large amount of soap water. If carefully not to wash away dirt, it can erase paint.

Spots of tar or bitumen need to be cleared by means of the fabric moistened in solvent.

At least, each six months polish a body and the chromeplated details. If you use a cleaner for the chromeplated parts to remove a rust from details with an electrodeposit, remember that the cleaner also deletes honor of chrome so use it carefully.
