Exterior Car Detailing
Classic car detailing for your vehicle’s exterior goes well beyond a simple car wash. It includes thoroughly cleaning and protecting the body of your vintage car, reaching all those hard-to-get-to places, such as under the wheel arches. Our services will help restore your vehicle to its showroom shine when providing the services listed below.
1. Caring for Your Vintage Rims & Tyres
When it comes to caring for classic rims and tyres, detailers take a different approach than they do with modern vehicles. Due to the age of the wheels, they may be more delicate and require gentler care. Our detailers may also use milder cleaning solutions to avoid damaging the rims and special protective coatings to keep the tyres looking great.
Regular care from a detailer can help maintain the appearance of your classic rims and tyres, as well as help prolong their life. Classic vehicle parts can be hard to find, so preserving them through regular maintenance and repair is even more important, which is the role of our professional detailers.
2. Keep Your Vintage Cars Exterior Safe with Paint Protection
Eightyeight Detailing uses graphene and ceramic coatings to protect a classic car’s exterior.
Graphene coatings are a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal pattern to become highly resistant to scratches and UV rays. A ceramic coating, on the other hand, is a liquid polymer that, when cured, forms a permanent bond with the vehicle’s paint, creating a protective layer that is also resistant to chemicals, UV rays, scratches, bird droppings and other environmental damages. These coatings provide long-term protection, making it easier to maintain and keeping the car paint looking new for an extended period. They also create a hydrophobic effect that makes it easier to clean cars.
Both coatings are applied professionally and typically require an experienced technician to ensure the best results.
3. Removing Unwanted Imperfections with Paint Correction
Paint correction is a process used for the treatment of unwanted imperfections from the paint surface of a classic car. It involves using specialised tools and techniques to remove swirl marks, scratches, oxidation, and other defects from the car paint.
The process typically includes a thorough washing and decontamination of the paintwork, followed by using hand polish and specialised compounds to gently remove the imperfections. The result is a smooth, glossy paint job that is free of defects and looks like new. In some cases, paintless dent removal is possible for paint corrections.
4. Window Tinting for UV Protection
UV rays can cause fading and discolouration of the car’s interior, including the dashboard, seats, and carpets. Window tinting can provide UV protection for your classic car by blocking harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun.
We can include window tinting as part of the classic car detailing process because we know it can block up to 99% of Australia’s harsh UV rays, helping to preserve the condition and appearance of the car. Additionally, it’s beneficial as it can provide privacy, reduce glare, and increase the car’s energy efficiency by keeping the interior cooler. It is important to note that different states have different laws regarding the level of tinting allowed on cars, and our technicians work to these regulations for those in the Sydney region.
