Short term solution?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have just purchased a mk5 estate with original paint as a daily driver... it's a bit grotty but I'm a fan of the character it lends the vehicle.

It's been garaged for many years by the previous owner but I currently don't have that option.

The mid to long term plan is to get it properly protected and clear coated to try and protect it and "lock in" its current look, however I am going to need to use it as normal until then.

It looks like it's going to start getting wet this week so any suggestions to protect it in the short term?

Thanks.

Keeping it waxed will make a difference to the paint.

 

WD40, "Protect and Shine" or similar will help keep chrome from rusting.

 

Where you can't see - inside the wheel arches, on the underbody, a quick spray of schutz will help.
