Why a Paint Protection Vehicle Wrap May Be Just What Your Car Needs

Why a Paint Protection Vehicle Wrap May Be Just What Your Car Needs

There is nothing like driving a new car off the lot.  In addition to that patented “new car smell”, the exterior of your vehicle looks immaculate.  The fresh paint glistens in the sunlight and the car has nary a nick or smudge of dirt. Unfortunately, that only lasts so long.  The color fades over time after being in the sun day after day.  Winter weather takes its toll, whether it be snow, ice or salt from the road.  You’ll get a scratch here or there.  It could come from a pebble or rock bouncing up from the road or a car door banging into your vehicle in the parking lot.

What you don’t know can hurt you when taking a test. And, of course, when driving, we’re taught immediately that what we don’t know can hurt everyone. In other words, beware of the blind spot, the areas around your car that you can’t see despite looking out of all your side view and rear-view mirrors. For most of automotive history, the blind spot has been something drivers have had to contend and co-exist with. Drivers have always been able to try to do what they can to help their vision, but the options have never been great – like glancing over their shoulder before a lane change, wh ... read more
