Stone Chips & Bugs
Insects are very acidic and contain
chemicals that can actually eat away at
your paint. What may look like stone chips
are actually bug residue that has been left
on the paint too long. Their chemical
composition actually eats away at your
vehicle's paint leaving holes in the paint
and clear coat.
Salt attaches itself to your car every winter and if left unnoticed, can damage the finish on your vehicle as well as remove car wax. The combination of road tar and hot sun can cause the tar to permanently attach to your paint.
The finish on your car can become dull due to a chemical reaction in the atmosphere with the pigment in your vehicle's paint called oxidation. This is primarily caused by direct exposure to sunlight for prolonged periods of time and can leave a white, chalky-looking residue. Unfortunately simple washing cannot remove oxidation.
