Paint on the exterior of a car has come a long way in the last 20 years.
Clear coats on top of the color of choice, have become widely used as the norm and have improved their durability in the sun too. These clear coats provide superior scratch and scuff resistance compared to the old days, when no clear coat was applied.
Yet even today certain manufacturers still paint their vehicles without a clear coat – in the name of cost savings
Paint finishes today have even advanced to the point of healing themselves. Nissan has pioneered a new type of paint that, when scratched (within reason) will use the power of the sun and the chemical composition of the paint compound to ‘melt’ a little of the clear coat back into the scratch, effectively removing any evidence of the damage.
For the majority of vehicle owners, exterior maintenance lies somewhere between these two automotive paint examples.
Common exterior car maintenance includes washing and waxing and generally keeping the functionality and aesthetic beauty of the vehicle in good condition. Doing this with some regularity and at a manageable level, will keep the value of the vehicle as high as the market will carry, and prolong the service life of the vehicle.
When the unfortunate realities of life show their wear and tear on our vehicles, a MARS technician can correct most problems.
From scratches to door dents, rock chips to faded paint, damaged bumpers to worn out plastic, most cosmetic damage can be repaired in about 2 hours. Which will keep you on the road in your own vehicle and the value of the vehicle at its optimum.
