Spruce Up Your Car
From getting rid of dents or those stubborn, stinky smells, get some tips from the car pros that will have you riding in style once again.
- Use baby wipes to wipe down the dashboard and all interior surfaces in the car
- Vacuum the car's ceiling at least once a month. Smoke and other smelly toxins can embed themselves in the headliner of your car.
- Use a mixture of white vinegar, a washing agent and warm water to take out the sweat stains.
Recipe For Car Wash:
- A bucket of water
- 1 cup of vinegar
- About 1 cup of washing powder
- Find a wheel repair shop. Experts can fix curb rash and scratched up wheels that don't look nice. They also repair bent wheels. Many times the damage comes from driver's tires brushing up against a curb or hitting a pot hole.
- You can refinish your existing wheel and save up to 75 percent of the cost of a new one.
- It may also be better to keep your factory wheel. Our expert says factory wheels get a lot more testing they have to come up to a lot more standards than an aftermarket wheel does which makes it a better.
- Repair prices range from $85 to $160. A new wheel is about $80.
- Consider buying used tires. Used Tire shops often carry hundreds of tires in every size and brand. Prices are $15 to $70.
Dents & Dings
- Check out a mobile car repair service. We had a dent in the passenger door fixed for $120. In the body shop that job would run about $500.
Paint Touch ups
- Dealerships carry paint touch up kits to match your car. Just bring your VIN number for an exact match. A small jar will cost about $30. Touch up work in a detail shop runs about $100-150.
