1.17.6. A body

Winter – not the best season for the car, especially at movement on the streets plentifully strewed by salt. During this period the body in the maximum degree is exposed to corrosion, and its anticorrosive processing is rather desirable. However, according to employees of some authorised services-centres, for a number of new foreign cars, especially – with the zinced body, it is quite enough factory processing. But if at you, say, new Skoda (not to mention domestic легковушках) experts recommend to spend full anticorrosive processing of the bottom, wheel arches and the latent cavities of a body.

Not out of place will be also installation подкрылков.

Cost of a complex of these services on the average makes $250-300 and depends, basically, from a kind 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 a climate similar to ours. It can be Finnish Mercasol AL with aluminium additives, Swedish Noxudol on the metallized basis, Canadian Rust stop or Tektyl.

Anticorrosive processing demands technology strict observance and though almost all manufacturers of protective materials let out them in packing for household application, all the same it is more preferable to make processing in the specialised service centre. 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 a 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 it leads to occurrence of microcracks on a paint. The body surface can be protected special structure, suitable for use at low temperatures, for example, Plus Teflon or Color Magic. Processing by these preparations spend to once a month – after obligatory washing of the car and its drying.

Question on where to hold the car in the winter, actually usually it is not necessary – at whom the garage is, at whom is not present – in the street hold it in garage. 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 in the street – at a cold body corrosion process goes more slowly. In cold garage of heat allocated with the car suffices on that it a few to warm, and the melted snow with salt some time actively do the dirty deed. Well, and in warm garage even if you have carefully washed the car from salt from below, it will stand all night long the wet...
