6 Ways To Make Your Old Car Look Brand New

You can save a lot of money and keep your favorite old car in good shape. Here are six tips to help you do that.

Cars are expensive these days, with the average new car costing $25,000 or more. Although you may not be able to afford a new car, there are some things you can do to spruce up your old car and make it last as long as possible. That way you can save a lot of money and keep your favorite old car in good shape. Here are six tips to help you do that.

 
Fix Small Dents and Scratches

Cars that have lots of years and miles on them tend to have a lot of dents, dings and scratches on them as well. One way to make your car look more like new is to fix those blemishes. You can pound out dents and buff out scratches. Add a little touch-up paint and your car will shed several years. It really is amazing how much of a difference just sprucing up the outside can make.

 
Replace The Tires

If you have original tires on your car, replacing them won't just make your car look new, it also can make it safer as well as improve your gas mileage. New tires can be expensive, so you might look at some slightly used tires with a few thousand miles on them. A parts place, like U Pull & Pay,is a good place to start with searches like this. Looking into the right resources is essential when it comes to find reasonably priced tires that are in good shape.

 

Get It Detailed

Detailing is essentially a thorough cleaning inside and out, with some added touches, which can do wonders for your old car. Most detailing services will wash and wax your car, while also polishing your headlights and taillights and thoroughly cleaning the under carriage. Inside, you will get carpets and fabrics shampooed, surfaces thoroughly cleaned and leather seating conditioned. This can really improve the interior of your car and at least make it feel brand new. Everyone will be super impressed with how neat and clean your car is.

 

Replace Accessories and Add New Ones

Even small touches like replacing your floor mats and windshield wipers can make your car look new, and these things don't cost a lot of money. Another way to make your old car look new is to get seat and steering wheel covers. Replacing the interior and accessories could trick anyone into thinking your car is brand new.

 

Get It Painted

If you are willing to spend a little money, one of the best ways to make your car feel like new is a new paint job. A new paint job allows you to change colors, which really will make your car feel new, although a new coat of the same color also will do the trick.

 

Replace Components

Not everything you do to make your car feel new has to be visible to the naked eye. Doing things to improve the ride, such as getting new brake pads or shocks and struts, can improve your enjoyment and make your car feel new.

 

Overall, you don’t ever have to feel stuck with your same old car. You can always be making improvements and cleaning it up pretty regularly. That way you can really help save yourself a lot of money and memories.
