Automobile Vehicle detailing: adding parade-ready snap!

Vehicle detailing: adding parade-ready snap!


Have you ever had the experience of washing and waxing your vehicle for a special function such as a parade or family reunion only to be left feeling like your vehicle lacked that little extra “flash” you were looking for? Even though you took the extra steps of cleaning between the grille slats, using dressing on the tires and silicone on the window seals, did it still lack that extra snap? There’s a special little trick that I learned which will give your vehicle a subtle appearance boost. It’s easy to do but you must take a cautious approach. This trick works especially nice on SUV’s and pickup trucks.

wheel cleaning

After all your exterior cleaning is done, get yourself a can of flat black spray paint. Being very careful not to get any over-spray on the finish of your vehicle, lightly spray the insides of the wheel wells in behind the tires. It doesn’t take much, you’re just adding a nice uniform blackening in behind those tires. The flat black will quickly mask all the stains and road wear that occur behind your tires.

Wheel paining

Unspoiled wheel wells are one of the details that make a brand new vehicle look so sharp. After you do the first one, step back and take a look at how that bit of increased contrast makes your cleaned wheels and tires stand out. After doing all the wheel wells, take a few extra moments to lightly spray the under-body areas which are exposed to view from the side. Again, it is incredibly important that you don’t get over-spray on the finish of your vehicle.

The whole process will take less than 10 minutes and the results can be absolutely astounding. When you are all done you will surely be delighted with the extra snap this trick will give to your vehicle. All the extra cleaning and polishing that you have done will be given an extra boost due to the extra dark contrast within those wheel wells. This trick can also be used to make a vehicle you are trying to sell look just a bit more appealing!
