Welcome back to the Proje’ blog!

Sometimes, it seems like you can’t win with your car. If it gets too sunny, you need to protect your paintwork and dash from warping; if it gets too cold, the exact same thing is a danger. Your bodywork has no place to hide. (Of course, the secret is to always keep your detailing up to date!)

The same is true with rust. Obviously, persistent rain is going to cause issues, but also hot weather brings dust, which can kick up on to paintwork and interfere with any imperfections. So again, you need to get smart and protect your paintwork.

Of course, you’re always going to get a bit of rust – especially on your wheels and underneath your car. But the underside is designed to take it to an extent – less so your paintwork. So let’s cut the risk, get proactive and protected, then hit the road with confidence.

If you notice a bit of rust on your paintwork, you need to deal with it immediately. The last thing you want is to have to splash out on a respray or worse. So, here are a few tips:

  • Keep your car clean. It may seem simple, but regular washing is always the best frontline defence – and it’s the simplest. Our Vital Car Wash Soap is an effective way to make sure that dirt doesn’t sit on your paintwork, separating it out so that you can wipe it away easily, without any risk of scratching. You get great suds and bubbles as a result of a special pH neutral chemical reaction with water, which is tough on dirt and grease but will not damage any wax or sealant. And a clean surface means a reduced risk of rust.
  • Use an effective sealant – and use it as soon as you’ve got your car clean. Our Hybrid Wax Sealant doesn’t just deliver a beautiful shine; it seals your newly shiny exterior from all kinds of contamination – brake dust, water, UV rays, pollution – all for up to a year. It’s durable, resistant to extreme temperatures, hot or cold, and will have your car turning heads everywhere you go with that smooth, radiant shine. The secret is in the ingredients; the synthetic formula provides the best results for the overall finish, but also creates a direct bond with the surface of your vehicle, meaning that a really strong seal is created, so nothing can get in. 
  • a high-quality ceramic product. SiO2 forms an extremely effective layer of protection from the elements, and our Ceramic Spray Coating is the best SiO2 spray out there. UVA and UVB rays won’t penetrate it, pollen can’t touch it, and dirt and dust just fall away like water. One application will last for up to 12 months, guaranteeing you insane value for money!

It doesn’t need to always be a case of playing catch-up. Get ahead and get protected – come rain or come shine. It’s always better in the long run to be cautious then enjoy yourself, than to be caught short. And that’s what the best detailers do – they get ahead. There’s no reason you can’t too.
