11.2. Care кузовными elements and a paint and varnish covering

It is necessary to remember that a primary factor defining selling cost of the second-hand car, the condition of its body is. Care procedures кузовными panels are extremely simple, but should be carried out on a regular basis. The scornful relation to the smallest mechanical damages and defects of a paint and varnish covering can lead to fast development of corrosion and necessity of performance expensive кузовного repair. Important also regularly to check a condition of the surfaces hidden from a sight and details, such as arches of wheels, the bottom part of partitions of an impellent compartment, etc.

Base procedure on care of a car body is its sink (the car Sink see), preferably plentiful quantity of water, submitted under pressure from a hose. Powerful enough stream easily softens and forces down the dried up dirt and that is important, allows to avoid damage of a paint and varnish covering at a friction about it of separate grains of sand and other abrasive particles. Do not forget to wash out also an arch of wheels and bearing elements of the bottom of the car. Strangely enough, the best time for performance of a sink of elements of a suspension bracket and the car bottom is damp rainy weather when the most part of the accumulated mud adjournment is washed off automatically during movement. Try not to miss possibility and, taking an opportunity, make external survey of the components located under the car.

Completely having washed off a dirt from a paint and varnish covering, wipe surfaces кузовных panels soft suede, returning to polishing initial shine. Processing of surfaces by a polyrole containing wax provides additional protection of a paint and varnish covering against atmospheric influences and allows to restore locally lost polishing. Remember that tarnishing of a paint and varnish covering is connected with the scornful relation to a regular sink of the car more often.

Wax polishing кузовных panels should be made about time in half a year. Paint and varnish coverings of type "metallic" require special leaving with application of special, not containing abrasives of polyroles. Try to check regularly passableness of drainage and ventilating apertures кузовных panels. Do not forget to wipe from time to time some glass, by means of special cleaning structures deleting from their surface a road film. At all do not use for processing of glasses polyroles containing wax or means for care of the chromeplated elements of furnish.

Once a year, or through each 20 000 km of run it is necessary to make check of a condition of an anticorrosive covering of the bottom of the car. Preliminary it is necessary to subject the car bottom, including an impellent compartment, steam cleaning in which course multilayered oil adjournment, sticky шлам and a dense dirt especially well leave. If possibility of application of steam cleaning is absent, it is necessary to process by means of a brush surfaces of components subject to cleaning by one of set of solvents let out now.

Last method should not be applied on cars, the anticorrosive which covering of the bottom has a wax basis.

Such annual survey of the car should be made before the beginning of a winter season after good размачивания mud and oil adjournment in the conditions of the raised humidity, characteristic for an autumn season. The damaged anticorrosive covering should be immediately restored. In an ideal, once a year it is necessary to make full anticorrosive processing of the car, at which protective structure закачивается in a cavity of door panels, thresholds, box-shaped sections bearing кузовных elements and other accessible volumes.

The last does not concern panels and the sections subjected to full anticorrosive processing and загерметизированным industrially.

Remember that the constant finding of external and internal components of a body and car furnish concern number of the factors accelerating development of corrosion in the humidified condition; the raised relative humidity of air, especially at temperature above a freezing point and in districts with the raised level of pollution of atmosphere; the raised temperature of air (the raised temperature renders special influence on development of corrosion of badly ventilated elements); the raised impurity of air (saturation by salts and acids); application of salt for processing of a road covering in winter months (special attention give to regular cleaning of wheel arches and bottom elements.
