B&W MOBILE AUTO DETAILING VIDEOS

Buster discusses how to keep the paint on your classic car looking great! A classic car's paint job can be its greatest feature or its greatest weakness. If you're looking to upgrade the finish on your vintage ride, call B&W Mobile Auto Detailing. They are professionally trained on single stage and classic car paint jobs. Here are a couple of reasons why your classic car may be looking faded or cracked: 1. UV fading When paint is exposed to the elements for an extended period of time, it can eventually start to exhibit a chalky, white appearance. This type of paint damage is also known as oxidation, and it occurs when the top layer of the paint starts to break down. Older vehicles that don’t have a layer of clear coat are especially vulnerable to oxidation and UV fading. If you're unsure about your car's paint, it’s a good idea to have a paint shop with experience with older vehicles determine if your classic car has single stage paint. Since single stage paint is typically thin and fragile, it's remarkably easy to damage and should be handled by an experienced pro. If you decide to tackle UV fading or oxidation on your own, the most important tip to keep in mind is to use the least aggressive product that’s capable of getting the job done. That means you should start with a nonabrasive product and move on to increasingly abrasive products only if it’s absolutely necessary. If you notice any pigmentation on your buffing or polishing media after you start working on your paint, that means your vehicle doesn’t have a protective clear coat. That’s your cue to either take it easy and tread lightly or take the job to a professional. For classic cars that have single stage paint, the best way to deal with UV fading is to start by washing and claying the vehicle. After you’ve removed all of the surface contaminants, you can condition the paint with a sealer and reseal glaze. If that takes care of the fading and oxidation issues, you can finish off the job by applying a coat of wax. 2. Small paint chips Chips in the paint are often very minor imperfections, but even a tiny chip can pose a danger to the integrity and value of a classic car. If you notice any chips in your paint, it’s vital to take care of them right away. If you don’t, even a tiny chip can become a rusty mess in a short period of time. Small chips are relatively easy to take care of. You’ll need to prepare the area by washing it and then gently wiping it with a polishing compound, which will help to soften any rough edges. A quick wipe with some denatured rubbing alcohol will finish the preparation. You can then apply a small amount of primer to the chip and finish it off with some touch-up paint. If you use a correctly matched touch-up paint color, the repair should be indistinguishable from a few feet away, and it will also protect your car from rust. However, you’ll need to visit a body repair or paint shop if you want a repair that will stand up to close scrutiny.
