Car Care-Girl Speak
The above ugly assed picture is of the bottom of my car. My screws are rusting. Damn it.
A few easy maintenance steps will keep your car or van going strong for much longer.
Run the lovely vehicle through the car wash and pay for the wax. They also sell a super easy spray on wax. Just spray and wipe. I would recommend that too.
Clean the tires and look for any damage. And don't forget the wet shine. I buy the spray on that doesn't need to be wiped off. This is all about being lazy. Yes, I vote for that.
Look for any rust spots. I buy the cheap touch up paint. And I'll even sand small rust spots if it seems to be too bad. For the ugly bolts, I'll paint them and then spray them with a clear coat just to make sure that its sealed. I would only do this in areas that you can't see.
Any black rubber parts have the tendency to turn grey. Yup, ugly and it makes your car/van look old. No one wants to show there age, especially my van, Ol' Girl.
I also give the inside of my van a good once over. Shhhh, don't tell anyone but I keep a dust rag in the cup holder in case I see any dust.
