Aftercare Guidelines for Your Vehicle

To ensure the longevity and quality of your vehicle's repairs, please follow these aftercare instructions:

  • Bodywork and Alloy Repairs: Do not wash or polish your vehicle for at least 5-7 days after the repair.
  • Cold Weather Consideration: Exercise additional caution if repairs were conducted in cold conditions.
  • Post-Initial Period: After the initial 5-7 days, be cautious with high-power jet washers or automated car washes. They may aggressively affect refurbished finishes and might strip paint from wheels, especially around minor chips.
  • Avoid Abrasive Contact: Do not apply overly abrasive contact or chemical cleaning products to the repaired areas, as this can damage the repair.
  • Alloy Wheel Repairs: Avoid changing tyres within 7 days of an alloy wheel repair.
  • Wheel Reinstallation: If the wheel was removed during the repair process, ensure that the wheel nuts are retightened after 20 miles of driving, as per the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Maintenance of Refurbished Alloy Wheels: After the initial period, clean, refurbished alloy wheels with warm water and a non-abrasive cloth or brush.
  • General Paintwork Care: Follow the vehicle manufacturer's aftercare handbook guidelines for overall paint maintenance if available.
