Things You Need To Learn About Paint Protection Film

 here are the things that you need to learn about it to get a better idea of what you’re getting out of investing in this procedure.
It sucks to find a scratch on your car, even if it’s so tiny right? Well, getting an unsightly scratch on your car’s paint is never fun because touching up even the smallest one cost time and money. So why not invest in a paint protection film for your car and avoid paint damage in the first place. Sounds good right? But for those who have no idea about paint protection film, it’s normal to feel hesitant about it. So here are the things that you need to learn about it to get a better idea of what you’re getting out of investing in this procedure.

1. Not All Paint Protection Products Are The Same
Don’t just settle with a known product because it’s what popular. Always shop around and compare price and quality. Sometimes a different store offer discounts that other stores don’t or carry better kinds of paint protection product. Until you find the best one for your needs and budget, keep looking around.

2. Prevention Is Better Than You But It’s Not Too Late For Older Cars
Like most things, prevention is better than cure. A good paint protection system should protect your car long-term. However, if you haven’t protected your car from day one – a good system should be able to improve your car considerably, with a notable difference and also continue to further protect your car from the day you have applied the paint protection product. 

3. You Shouldn't Settle With Car Waxing
Most people love shiny cars because it makes the car look expensive and sleek. To achieve this look, they often opt to wax their car because we all know wax can help give that sparkling effect. However, the problem with this is that it is temporary and easily melts especially when constantly exposed in the sun. A much better option will be paint protection because it can provide the same luster for your car but is more durable compared to wax so it last longer.

4. Dirt Can Damage Your Paintwork
People don’t just seek car servicing in Singapore due to engine problems, more often than not it’s due to exterior damage from different kinds of dirt like grease, grime, and bird poop. When left unattended for extended period of time, they can cause serious paint damage on your car. Avoid the stress and unnecessary expenses by keeping your vehicle clean. 

5. There Are Reasons Why Car Dealers Tend To Be Drawn Towards Certain Products
Popular car dealers have to take care of their reputation if they want to stay on top of their business. In order to do this, they have to maintain the quality of products and services that they provide. This is why they only use good paint protection products that gives an incredible glass shine and maintains the value of your new car.

6. A Car’s Paint Work Helps Maintain Its Value And Can Increase Resale Value
Every time you do something on your car to either upgrade its look or performance, it either maintains or increases its value. By deciding to invest in paint protection film you are definitely increasing its value because this prevents exterior damage while making your car look attractive!

7. It’s Totally Unnoticeable
Worried the film will be visible? Worry not because it won’t be! Just make sure you’re using high quality brand and have a professional apply it for you to ensure a smooth finish.

8. It’s Very Reliable Because It Was Originally Developed To The U.S. Military
When equipment, tool, or anything is designed or intended to be used for U.S. military, you know the quality is good. So you can rest assured that you spent your money well.

9. Custom Installation Offers Better Protection
Okay, maybe you’re a bit reluctant to avail custom installation because you know it costs more and you want to save money as much as possible. But, remember that smart investments, in terms of paint protection, are those where you spend quite a bit but offer better fit and best coverage which you know will last longer.

Whatever the problem with your car’s paint, do not wait too long to get it fixed, especially if the car’s body has been exposed. If you wait until chips and dings on your car turn into rust before you take care of it, prepare yourself for bigger problem and heftier car repair costs. Without protection, the bodywork of the car can begin to corrode. Regular cleaning and drying of the car will be sufficient to handle most problems. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to inspect your car for more serious damage.

Here are more reasons for you to want paint protection film installed on your car and realize how much you and your ride will benefit from it more than you thought it would!

4 Steps To Keep Your Car Rust-Free

Rusts on your car is not only unsightly to look at but also means your vehicle’s value drops as the damage develops. If the area affected by rust is very small, repairing it on your own is still an option. But if the rust has eaten through the metal or if the damage is extensive, you’ll need to seek professional car repair services. This way you’re guaranteed to get recommendations on how best to deal with the rust damage.
Rusts on your car is not only unsightly to look at but also means your vehicle’s value drops as the damage develops. If the area affected by rust is very small, repairing it on your own is still an option. But if the rust has eaten through the metal or if the damage is extensive, you’ll need to seek professional car repair services. This way you’re guaranteed to get recommendations on how best to deal with the rust damage.

1. Wash Your Car Regularly
Driving regularly means you’re car is always getting in contact with dirt, debris and other chemicals on the road. All of these things contribute to rust formation on your car’s exterior. To prevent this, the first thing that you should be on top of is being consistent with car wash. This should be done at least once every two weeks. Don’t forget to keep your car’s drain plugs clear, otherwise this will lead to water accumulation and rust formation. If you regularly wash your car, you should see to it that you wax your vehicle at least once a month in order to provide a barrier between the metals and the water. Lastly, always clean up spills immediately. Don’t let it sit for too long or it will be harder to clean it off and will lead to rust.  

2. Use Products That Prevent Rust
In addition to washing your vehicle regularly, you can have your vehicle pre-treated to help prevent rust. Have this done by the manufacturer when first buying the car. Another option is to treat suspect areas whenever you wash your car with an anti-rust spray. Look for chipped paint or areas that look like bubbles in the paint. These areas are an indication that rust has begun to corrode the part of the vehicle just under the paint. Clean the area around the bubbling or chipped paint. Allow the vehicle to dry and apply an anti-rust spray to your car to help prevent rust damage before it begins.

3. Wipe Down Car Surfaces
Yes the sun and wind can easily dry your car, but letting your vehicle dry that way will leave unsightly water marks which not only renders your hard work useless but also causes moisture to seep through and develop rust. Use a microfiber towel or preferably a weave drying towel to absorb the water and dry the car. This also applies to your car interior. Letting moisture sit for too long on any surface of the car is bound to cause damage.

4. Treat Rust Spots Early
Rust spreads if left untreated, so deal with it when the first signs appear. Don’t forget to obtain your touch-up paint from a reputable automotive parts retailer or body shop. Match it up with your car’s paint code that you will find on a placard under the hood or on the driver’s side door pillar. Sand the affected area. Scuff the surface. To further break down the affected area and prepare it for new paint, use a scuffing pad. Scuffing pads create a rough surface, which is easier for the paint to stick to. Rub the scuff pad along the path of the corroded area back and forth until the surface feels rough to the touch. Tape off areas where you don’t want the paint to get onto like the headlights.  Apply primer. This is necessary if the damage have gone through the primer. Let the primer dry overnight before you begin painting.  Shake the touch-up paint well to ensure that it will leave an even color deposit. Dab the touch-up paint onto the paint chip. Be light handed to make sure that just enough paint is being applied that covers all edges of the affected area. Let it dry for at least 15 minutes before you apply another layer. Be sure to use thin layers, slowing building up until the replacement paint matches the original paint. Re-apply clear coat. Ones you’ve matched the paint and have let it dry for at least 2 days you can now apply the clear coat. Replacement clear coat typically comes in an aerosol can and can be sprayed directly onto the vehicle. Wax the whole vehicle. To prevent a small section of your car from being shinier than the rest of your paint, apply a coat of wax to the whole car.

Top 9 Mistakes You’re Doing In Cleaning Your Car

Sometimes, because people don’t know how to properly clean their cars, they end up damaging it. Remember that even if you do clean your car, it doesn’t count if you’re not doing it right.

Unclean car isn’t only unsightly but can also lead to unnecessary car repairs. While it’s easy to assume that this shouldn’t be an issue nowadays since there’s ample access to car polishing here in Singapore, a busy schedule and tight budget makes it more difficult.

On the other hand, just because you clean your car doesn’t mean you’re doing a good job  with it. Sometimes, because people don’t know how to properly clean their cars, they end up damaging it. Remember that even if you do clean your car, it doesn’t count if you’re not doing it right.

1. Using Dish washing Liquid As Cleaning Agent
You have to remember that your car is made of completely different materials than your dishes or clothes, etc. So don’t assume that the cleaners that you use to clean the rest of your house will also do with your car. Buy a car shampoo that works specifically well with getting stubborn dirt and grime off your paintwork without causing damage.

2. Using Abrasive Cloths
Always use microfiber cloths when cleaning your car. It only takes a rough towel or dirt on a towel to scratch your precious paint job. Do not risk it and make sure you’re always using clean microfiber cloth to wipe your car with.

3. Cleaning Under Direct Sunlight
If you think that cleaning your car under direct sunlight is a good idea because it will reduce drying time, think again. Yes it may help dry the car fast but it can also cause smears, water spots, and residue which are never a good idea for your car.

4. Removing Missed Patches With A Drying Cloth
It happens to the best of us: you rinse your car, only to find you’ve missed a bit. But, instead of reaching for the cleaning cloth (the recommended solution), you attack the spot with your drying cloth – a big no-no. By rubbing a mucky mark with a dry cloth, you’ll effectively work the dirt into the paint, or at the very least cause a stubborn swirl mark. Remember – never clean your car with a dry cloth.

5. Applying Products Directly To The Paintwork
The golden rule is to dilute and apply to cloth first. Dilute cleaning products to water and apply polishing products to cloth first. Don’t even think of cutting this process short by applying the products directly to the paintwork. The damage that over-applying of products may cause is not worth the seconds you may have saved on cleaning.

6. Thinking One Bucket Is Enough
Always use two buckets when cleaning your car, one for washing and one for rinsing. It just doesn’t make sense to use the same water filled with dirt and suds to rinse the car.

7. Cleaning The Wheels Last
Just because your wheels are at the bottom part of your vehicle doesn’t mean it should be the last part to be washed. If you do, you will end up splashing dirt and suds back into an already cleaned part which you’ll have to clean again.

Majority of people loves a shiny car. This is why it’s easy to get carried away with waxing. However, any more than 2 coats of wax can lead to over-buffing and removing earlier coats. This then not only waste time and effort on waxing, but can also risk damage on the paint you’re supposed to be applying protection to.

9. Skipping Towel Drying
Although it’s not always necessary to towel dry your motor, if you’re going to do it, at least use the right towel. Unless you want to scratch the paintwork, never use a standard household towel, or a chamois for that matter. Instead, use a dry microfiber cloth to quickly remove excess moisture.

Car repairs don’t come cheap. Actually they can really be hefty especially if it’s been awhile since your last maintenance and its condition is quite bad already. Take car re-painting for instance, when your paint gets damaged, you can’t just fix the damaged part, you have to repaint the entire car. If you don’t like to spend a huge amount of money trying to fix your car’s paint, better pay attention to this. They may seem nothing but could lead to serious damage in your vehicle if not taken care of.

Possible Reasons Why You Started Losing Interest In Your Car

 Here are some problematic elements that make your vehicle look old, slow and junky
Buying a car and driving one every day is easily one of the most popular goals among working individuals. Not only because of the convenience that it provides but also because of the feeling of independence that it gives you and sometimes the status symbol that comes with it. However, no matter how important this investment is to you, you start losing interest in it once it no longer looks like the dream car it once looked. Here are some problematic elements that make your vehicle look old, slow and junky. 

Heat Consumption
Even if you don’t live in a tropical country, heat and sunlight will eventually take toll on your car’s condition. It can damage both exterior and interior surfaces of your vehicle and when that happens it’s natural to feel dismayed. Your car is an expensive investment after all. However, using sun control window films on your vehicle’s windows can help keep the heat away.

Dust Issues
There’s no way to avoid getting dusts all over your car, especially if you drive a lot and keep you windows down every once in awhile. But a little dust here and there is not enough reason to be turned off with your car altogether. Besides, dust will only accumulate if you don’t maintain cleanliness in your car. If you’re really that busy that you can’t spare some time to do the cleaning yourself, then at least take your car to car grooming regularly to keep it from looking like you go through the Sahara desert every day.

Fading Car Paint
Paint doesn’t just give color to your car and make it look like new, but it also protects it from premature rusting and corrosion. This is why it is very important to protect your paint from things that fades it sooner than it should. What you can do to prevent this is take your car to your trusted car servicing shop and have a car paint protection applied on it. This will serve as a protective barrier between the paint and any particles.

No Shiny Car Surface
If you want to keep your car paint as shiny and glossy as on the day you bought your car (or applied the paint), there is no better alternative to choose than ceramic coating for cars. The ultimate protection your car will get from the ceramic coating layer is unmatchable by any other product on the marketplace - and is one that you need to see to believe.

Top 8 Tips That Will Help You Protect Your Car's Paint Job


Save yourself and your wallet the annoying car repairs. Follow these tips and you’ll surely enjoy a shiny and brand new looking car longer than most cars wherein their owners don’t take these extra precautions.

1. Use A Car Cover
There will be times when you won’t be able to find a covered parking lot, but that doesn’t mean you have to let your car get soaked in the sun.

2. Wash It Thoroughly
People don’t just seek car servicing in Singapore due to engine problems, more often than not it’s due to exterior damage from different kinds of dirt like grease, grime, and bird poop. When left unattended for extended period of time, they can cause serious paint damage on your car. Avoid the stress and unnecessary expenses by keeping your vehicle clean.

3. Do Not Skip Drying
Yes the sun and wind can easily dry your car, but letting your vehicle dry that way will leave unsightly water marks which renders your hard work useless. Use a microfiber towel or preferably a weave drying towel to absorb the water and dry the car.

4. Clean With A Clay Bar
Washing your car with water and car specific cleaning agent is a great way to prevent any dirt from causing damage on the paint. However, even after washing, some contaminants still cling to the paint. To totally get rid of them, using a clay bar is the way to go. Using this product is very easy but time consuming. First, use a good quality auto detailing shampoo to wash the paint and get rid of dirt and grime as much as possible. After that, you can use the clay. Many clay bars in the market come with a lubricant but if it does not, there are products that you can purchase separately. It is extremely important to lubricate the surface first to enable the clay to glide easily across the surface. You’ll know it’s working because the clay gets dirtier as you go because of all the contaminants it’s grabbing.

5. Wax Your Car
Remember that a good wax will easily last 8 – 10 months on a car that will protect the paint of the car from external elements like scratches, dust, contaminants, and UV rays. To be on a safer side, apply a coat of wax every six months on your car to keep it clean and smooth.

6. Seek Car Polishing
Polishing is one of the most misunderstood paint care procedures and as a result many individuals skip this important step. Polish is an abrasive compound, which, when worked into the paint using the hand or a polisher, shaves off imperfections of the paint. It levels out the surface and makes it smooth, thereby preparing it for the next step of applying wax or paint sealant. If you wax without polishing the surface first, not only will the paint look dull, but you will also notice that the wax layer will wear off quicker than usual. So ultimately it is a huge waste of your time and resources. Because polish is abrasive as mentioned above, it is important to master polishing techniques especially if you are using a rotary buffer, or you risk burning right through the paint.

7. Clear Coat Protector
Most new cars come with a clear coat over the paint layer to keep the car shiny and protected from external elements. The clear coat offers a more glossy finish to the car, and will keep harmful elements like UV rays and dust at bay to protect the paint of the car. Any minor issues can also be buffed out, if the car has a clear coat. However, clear coats are sensitive to scratches and are prone to oxidation. It is still not a substitute for wax and needs to have a wax job to protect the shine of the car.

8. Park In A Garage When Possible
Even a warm garage beats being parked in the sun all day. So whenever there’s an available garage, use it. Not only that your interior will stay cool, but your paint job won’t suffer to premature damage either.

Best Ways To Polish Your Vehicle


Car washing and grooming sure guarantees a sanitary environment for you while driving and a clean looking car outside. However, if you like to keep your vehicle looking branded new, that won’t be enough. You need car polishing to achieve that. If you’re in Singapore, it will be hard to escape from the periodic drizzles and the rays of the sun. Washing the cars will take care of the dirt accumulated but will not help you get rid of the harm done by the climatic changes. Polishing the car would be the best thing to keep the vehicle fresh and shining. Doing this at least once every three months will keep it looking like those automobiles in showrooms. Here are the different ways you can do that.

Avoid Sun Damage At All Cost
Summer time is a fun season to drive to the beach, go on a road trip, or simply go anywhere because the weather is nice. But while you may not have to worry about slippery roads driving which can be dangerous, it’s the heat of your car that you should be worried about. This is why aside from preparing thick towels to place on the seats, and windshield cover, it’s also important to try to park your car in the shade as much as possible and invest in paint protection especially in such a sunny country like Singapore. Unless you’re fine with your car paint blistering and peeling as well as premature fading and cracking of your car interior.
