Aside from mechanical maintenance, there are a lot of tips to help keep your Ford looking brand new. From protecting the exterior paint to cleaning the inside, there is no reason why your car, truck, van, or SUV should look old – even if it technically is!
First, you should always try to get covered parking for your automobile. Garages are best, followed closely by carports. However, sometimes neither are options. If you must park in the open, try to find shade. This will cut down on damage to the exterior coat from UV rays, and it will keep the cabin a bit cooler in the summer.
The key here is to find shade without using the cover of trees. Bird droppings and rogue branches can leave your vehicle dirty and even scratched. The final option for you here is to invest in a protective cover. There are many to choose from that are designed specifically for your Ford model.
You can also get window shades. There are two types – folded and pleated. The folded version is opened up and placed in the front and rear windows to deflect sunlight. The pleated type attaches to the windshield posts with adhesive, the window frames with Velcro, or to the actual glass via suction cups.
