What can I do to maintain the car’s factory paint job?

Technically, car paint can last as much as 15 years if looked after properly — and if local weather conditions are aggregable enough. As for what you can do to protect the paint, there’s a lot. But your two main concerns should be the sun and keeping the car clean.

Sunlight is the main reason car paint starts to fade over the years. And the best way to protect the paint — besides making sure the car is in the shade as much as possible — is to keep the car polished and waxed with treatments that offer UV protection.

As for why it’s important to keep the car clean, it’s to prevent scratches and corrosion. Plenty of stuff that gets on the vehicle can corrode the paint — with road salt being a common concern — and sand that sticks to the paint can scratch it over time. You can avoid these issues by washing the car regularly. Installing a clear bra Denver can also be helpful, as this website shows.
