Our Favorite Online Repair Manual... Mitchell1

Taking Care of your body in winter…


It’s that time of year again, and many of you out there are dealing with snow, sleet and ice on the roads. Take care of your car’s body with a few quick and easy tips…

1. Wash the salt and chemicals off of your car as much as possible. Road crews throw down salt and other chemicals to melt ice, but it can also damage your car’s body panels. Make sure to clean under the car too, a high pressure hose at your local car wash is the best.

2. Make sure you have a good coat of wax before the snow hits. This will help protect your paint and make getting snow off your car easier.

3. Don’t scratch your paint when brushing snow off the hood and trunk of your car. Using an ice scraper or other hard object to remove snow can harm your car’s finish quicker than sandpaper.

Good luck,
