Wash Me, Please

It's definitely time to clean your car if someone writes "wash me" on your vehicle. Even if your car hasn't reached that point, a good cleaning of the inside and outside prevents the buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, reduces the potential for rust from road salt and helps ensure proper visibility needed for safe driving, according to the non-profit Car Care Council.

To get started, remove any clutter from inside the car, including items that have accumulated in the trunk that can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency. The next step is to thoroughly clean and vacuum the interior and wash the windows.

When washing the outside, include the tires, wheels, underside and fenders to eliminate any road salt or grime. Wheels and tires should be cleaned with a mitt other than the one used to wash the body. This will avoid contaminating the vehicle's paint with debris from the wheels and tires.

The vehicle should be washed in the shade and with a product sold specifically for cars. The council recommends washing one section at a time, thoroughly rinsing away the soap as you go. Work your way down toward the front, sides and rear of the vehicle. Clean the fenders and bumpers last since they will have the most dirt and grime that can contaminate the wash mitt.

The car should get a final rinse by removing the spray nozzle from the hose and letting the water cascade down the surfaces of the vehicle. To avoid water spots, dry the vehicle with a chamois or other product made for drying.

The last step is to wax the car according to the manufacturer's instructions for application. Waxing should be done out of direct sunlight and every six months. It goes a long way toward protecting the vehicle's finish and makes subsequent washes easier.

If you identified any stone chips, rust or other problem spots while washing your vehicle, the council suggests having these taken care of immediately to prevent further damage.

    They were very courteous and knowledgeable. They even helped me out with a transfer case magnet that I had misplaced from my original housing. This was the only piece I was missing from putting my transfer case back together and Trail Boss was kind enough to provide one for me! Now I'm back on the road! Thanks guys!

    Installed a lift kit over the weened myself and had to get a 4x4 alignment. Not only were the guys at Trail Boss Off Road able to squeeze me in that Monday morning but got my Jeep done earlier than they said and was under the estimate quoted also. Great service and knowledge of all things off road. Thanks Jeremy, you have gained a customer for anything my Jeep needs.

    They did such an excellent job I couldn't have been more happier. I went back a second time to get more work done and not only did they again do a great job but fixed all the screw ups the place I had originally got work done did. If you want great, honest quality work done with great customer service this is the place for you. My hats off to you guys.
