1.17.6. Body


Winter – not the best season for the car, especially at movement on the streets which have been plentifully salted. During this period the body in the maximum degree is exposed to corrosion, and its anticorrosive processing is very desirable. However, according to employees of some authorized service centers, for a number of new foreign cars, especially – with the zinced body, is quite enough factory processing. But if at you, say, new Skoda (not to mention domestic cars), experts recommend to carry out complete anticorrosive processing of the bottom, wheel arches and the hidden cavities of a body.

Installation of podkrylok will be not out of place also.

Cost of a complex of these services on the average makes $250–300 and depends, generally from a type of applied protective preparations. Them in our market it is now presented much. But first of all it is necessary to pay attention, probably, on what are applied in the countries with the climate similar to ours. It can be the Finnish Mercasol AL with aluminum additives, the Swedish Noxudol on the metallized basis, the Canadian Rust stop or Tektyl.

Anticorrosive processing demands strict observance of technology and though practically all producers of protective materials let out them in packing for household application, after all it is more preferable to make processing in the specialized service center. It is necessary to find out in advance, on what technology it is made. In any case before sheeting drawing on the bottom and arches the car should be cleared of dirt, is washed up and dried carefully up.

As you do processing by an anticorrosive mixture for some years, it is better поприсутствовать near the car and personally to observe this process.

Winter – hard test and for a paint and varnish covering of a body. Sharp differences of temperatures, snow mixed up with salt, an ice crust – all this leads to emergence of microcracks on paint. The surface of a body can be protected the special structure suitable for use at low temperatures, for example, by Plus Teflon or Color Magic. Processing by these preparations carry out approximately once a month – after obligatory washing of the car and its drying.

Question of where to hold the car in the winter, actually usually it is not necessary – who has a garage, keep it in garage, at whom is not present – on the street. Strangely enough, from the point of view of safety of a body (from corrosion, not from theft), between trips and for the night it is better to leave the car on the street – at a cold body process of corrosion goes more slowly. In cold garage of heat allocated by the car suffices on that it a few to warm, and the melted snow with salt some time actively do the dirty work. Well, and in warm garage even if you carefully washed the car from salt from below, it will stand all night long the wet...
