Four Ways To Make Your Old Car Look Like New

If you have an older car, there is a good chance that it needs some TLC. However, you don’t need to break the bank to make your car look good. Here are some ideas that will make your car look shiny and new again.

Clean the interior

This might seem like an obvious one but the interior of the car can get really dirty after a while. Even if it looks clean, there is a chance that there is dirt in the fabric that is making it look dull. If you have fabric seats, it might be worth your while hiring a professional company to shampoo the seats. You will be surprised at how much better it looks afterwards. There is a good chance that the dashboard and vents need a clean too, so make sure that you give them a good clean every six months or so as well as the regular cleanings.

New wheels

When you get new tires, your car looks a little bit better. So imagine how good your car will look after an Alloy wheel refurbishment is carried out. Changing the wheel on your car can be expensive so you might want to consider all of your options before you take the plunge and invest in a new set of wheels. Getting the alloys on your car fixed up can completely change the look of your car, especially if they have suffered from some knocks. Even giving them a good clean can help bring them back to life.

Wax job

Over the course of your car’s lifetime, it will be exposed to the elements. This can make the paintwork dull and lifeless. Getting a good wax job can help bring it back to life and make it look good again. A good wax job can also make a big difference to the life of the paintwork. It won’t protect it from bangs and scraps but it will help with the overall look. Waxing is a tough job but if you have the time it can be a very relaxing way to spend a day.


This is a new one that people are picking up on but wrapping your car can make a big difference. This is the alternative to getting the car sprayed with paint. If you have scraps and paintwork damage, you can get your car wrapped to protect it from further damage. Wrapping it also allows you to cover it in any colour or design that you choose. Want a completely different colour, no problem. Want a crazy design up the side? Sure. If you can dream it, they can wrap it. 

As you can see, there are a few ways that you can update your car without having to buy a new one. If you are not sure that you can carry out these jobs by yourself, you could ask the help of local companies to help get your car looking as good as the day that you brought it.
