With summer upon us, your car is once again rolling under the sun’s full glory. The sun’s ultraviolet rays plus extreme temperatures can really take a toll on your car’s beautiful shiny finish. If you have already detected signs of sun damage to car paint, you should think about applying first-aid to the affected areas. Otherwise, you might be risking further irreversible damage to the paint job.
Parking your car out in the sun for long periods of time can take the luster away from your wax and make your paint job look dull and faded. This can look really bad especially on dark-colored cars. The overall effect is that of a poorly-maintained vehicle that looks like it has more mileage than it really does.
The sad news is that sun damage to car paint is not skin deep—the UV rays can work right between the paint and the metal finish, causing the paint to peel off. When this happens, you will end up spending for a new paint job. Another option is to do a bit of repair work on the “sun spots” on your car and see if you could live with the result. After all, a full paint job can entail a considerable sum of money, and not every car owner is prepared to break the bank just to restore a vehicle’s glorious good looks.
