Nobody wants to be seen driving around in a beat-up old rust bucket. Your car is often an extension of your personality. It’s an outward sign to the world of who you are and what you’re all about. It’s pretty unlikely that the image that you want to project to the world is one that makes it seem like you don’t take care of yourself or the things that are important to you. But what can you do then? Let’s face it; it’s not very likely that you’re going to be in a position to upgrade to a newer model just because yours is looking a little worse for wear. Well, fortunately, you don’t have to go that far. In fact, there are a whole bunch of things that you can do to make your car looking almost as good as new!
Give it a new coat of paint
One of the most obvious ways that your car can end up showing it’s age is with its paint job. It’s only natural that, over time, the paint on your car is going to fade, chip and end up getting weather worn. By applying a fresh coat of paint to your vehicle, you really will be amazed at how much newer and more attractive it will be. Not only that but you can take this opportunity to mix things up. Why not find a new color for your car as well? A lot of the time a really nice paint job is enough to make even the oldest and cheapest vehicle seem far superior.
Keep it clean
Even the nicest car is going to end up looking like a hunk of junk if you let it get completely filthy. Make sure that you’re cleaning your car at least once every couple of weeks, if not even more often. Taking it through the car wash it great but there’s no substitute for doing the job yourself. That way you can be sure that you’re really getting into all the nooks and cranny. Not only that but if you’re lucky enough to have a pressure washer you can be sure that every single bit of dirt and grime is gone with ease. Then give the whole thing a wax and polish as well to bring it to a real shine. If you can see yourself in the body of the car, you know you’re onto a winner.
Reupholster the interior
Even if your car looks amazing from the outside, the interior can make a massive difference to how old and drab it looks. Few things tend to age worse than car upholstery, and unless you’re driving around in something truly vintage, it’s going to do nothing but make it look musty and gross. By reupholstering the car’s interior, you’ll be able to make the entire thing look far sleeker and more modern. You can choose exactly how you want it to look, whether you want sleek leather seats or something a little more subtle, it’s up to you.
