It’s “The Great Conundrum”. The beautiful, new, shiny car is in the driveway, absorbing all of the admiring glances like a seasoned supermodel. But then the worry sets in. What kind of things can literally take the gloss off the enjoyment? Nu Finish has products to help you maintain the shine.

Birds.

As nice as it is to be woken by a kookaburra flock’s dawn chorus, bird droppings are the number one weapon to a car’s coating.  There are different kinds of droppings with different kinds of chemicals that can and will etch into the paint’s clear coat and the paint itself if left untouched. Nu Finish Orange Power Car Wash and Nu Finish Car Polish will remove the source and the aftermath. Nu Finish Scratch Doctor then helps provide a final sealing coat over any unseen scratches.

Road grime and dirt.

Every day driving provides plenty of opportunities for dirt to dull the shine, to create scratches from microscopic molecules, and for the Sun’s UV to damage the skin of the car in exactly the same way as it burns human skin. Again, Nu Finish car wash will help by lifting away the dirt we can and can’t see from the paint’s surface.

Temperature.

“…of drought and flooding rains….” Those evocative words can bite paint and hard. Temperatures go up and down, and metal expands and contracts with them. Clear coats and paint has to expand with the sheet metal and over time may fracture in the upper levels, allowing the dirt etc we’ve mentioned to start breaking the layers down.

Hail.

From pea sized to cricket ball sized lumps, any form of hail is bad news for the car. Unless you have access to a garage or carport, covering your pride and joy with six inch thick layers of latex may be its only hope. Nu Finish polish may minimize fracture damage in the paint from impacts.

Car Fluids.

Self maintaining a car can save time and money, however some fluids, if not handled correctly, will work against your car. Brake fluid is one major paint killer, petrol and diesel fuels also don’t go well with paint if not cleaned off.

Budget brand products.

It’s tempting to save money by using budget priced cloths, chamois’, and cleaners. There is, though, a danger, of the product not being engineered to the same level of quality that all products from Nu Finish are.

After Wash.

Tying in the previous suggestion, once a car has been washed, high quality drying products such as good chamois are crucial in absorbing the final drops of water that may still have dirt particles in them. If left on the car, these could be the start of the paint’s break down process.
