Care of a varnish covering


So often, as far as it is required, absolutely washed up and dried-up varnish covering should become covered by preserving means for protection of a surface against influences of the atmospheric phenomena closing a time and a water-repellent layer of wax.

Being poured fuel, oil, greasing or brake liquid should be removed at once, differently it will lead to shade change. Preservation should be repeated, if water is not reflected from a varnish, and flows down big drops. Regular preservation provides preservation of initial shine long time.

Other possibility of preservation of a varnish — this use of preservatives at a sink. Washing preservatives protect a varnish covering if they are used at each sink, and the sink is made not less often than once in 2-3 weeks. To use only the preservatives containing synthetic wax or Carnauba wax.


Polishing is required only if the varnish owing to insufficient leaving took an ordinary-looking form because of influence of a dust, industrial gases, sunshine or a rain. And shine is not reached by more application of preservatives. It is necessary to warn against use of strongly abrasive or chemically strong polishing means even if the first experience of use appeared successful. Before each polishing the car should be washed absolutely up and dried carefully up. For the rest it is necessary to be guided by the instruction on application of polishing means.

Processing should be made small sites in order to avoid premature drying of polishing paste. Some polishing means should be preserved. Not to polish under open sunshine! Opaque surfaces should not be preserved or polished.

Car elements from easy alloys do not demand special leaving.

Removal of spots of pitch

Pitch spots for a short time corrode a varnish and then cannot be completely removed. It is possible to remove fresh spots with flushing gasoline and a soft rag. As a last resort it is possible to use gasoline from a tank, kerosene or turpentine. Very well clears pitch spots varnish preservative. When using this means there is no need for the subsequent sink.

Removal of insects

Traces from insects contain the substances, capable to damage a varnish film if them quickly not to remove. Having densely pasted, they do not leave only water and a sponge, and should be washed away by weak soap solution. Also there are special means for removal of traces from insects.

Removal of drops of building materials

Drops of any construction materials to wash away weak solution of neutral detergent. To rub slightly, differently it is possible to scratch a varnish. After a sink carefully to rinse with pure water.

Care of polymeric details

Polymeric details, imitation leather of seats, ceiling, glasses of lamps and also black opaque details to clear water with shampoo addition, not to wet a ceiling. If necessary to process polymeric details polymeric cleaners. Not to apply at all such solvents, as a nitrothinner, a cold cleaner or gasoline.

Purification of glasses

To wipe glasses of windows outside and from within a pure, soft rag. At strong pollution alcohol and warm water or a special cleaner for glasses will help. When cleaning a windscreen to cast away screen wipers forward. When cleaning a windscreen it is necessary to clear also and brushes of screen wipers.

When using silikonosoderzhashchy means of a brush, a sponge and the rags used for a sink of a varnish covering, should not be applied to purification of glasses. At a varnish covering silikonosoderzhashchy means of glass should be closed by a cardboard or other material.

Care of rubber consolidations

From time to time rubber consolidations should be powdered talc or to cover with silicone spray. Thus, scratches and noise when closing doors are eliminated. Noise also eliminates a natiraniye of the corresponding surfaces with soap.

Legkometallichesky disks of wheels to process a special cleaner especially in the winter, however, not to use aggressive, kislotosoderzhashchy cleaners at temperature above +60°С.

Seat belts to clear only weak soap solution in the established condition, not to subject to dry cleaning as the basis thus collapses. Automatic belts to pull out only in a dry condition and if necessary to process special spray for simplification of their ubiraniye. Not to dry a belt at temperature above +80°С or under direct sunshine.
