    Add Longevity to Your Audi's Paintjob with Clear Bra Paint Protection

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Auto body shops such as Dave’s offer more than just collision repair. Services range from dent removal, to paint job refinishing, to completely custom pain jobs, and a number of other options. After getting a new vehicle, having collision repair done, or even having a finish refreshed, protecting that new paint is important. These are some of the reasons that make Clear Bra protection such a smart idea. Read on to learn about some of these services, and how they will help your vehicle’s paint stay fresh.

    Refinishing

    • Just like a normal vehicle bra, these paint-protecting products are able to be applied to any vehicle. This includes vehicles with old paint, fading paint, and even damaged paint. The obvious problem with this is that protecting paint that is already fading or damaged seems counter-intuitive. For this reason, having a paint job refinished before applying these protective layers will make the best use of them. Of course, if a vehicle was recently refinished, either from collision repair, or simply to restore appearance, now is the perfect time to make use of these products.

    Clear Bra

    • 3M—the makers of Clear Bra—originally designed their Paint Protection Film to protect helicopter blades for the military, according to Motor Trend. The product has since become available for use in the automotive industry. The 3M Venture-Shield is actually a clear film. It acts as a layer of protection between the outside world’s contaminants—bugs, rocks, sand, etc.—and a vehicle’s most exposed surfaces. Dave’s Body Shop will use it to protect everything from a vehicle’s hood to headlights.

    Spray-On

    • The alternative to the Clear Bra is the Spray-On Paint Protector. This product offers the same level of protection as 3M’s product, and will blend in seamlessly with the vehicle’s paint job. The Paint Protector’s ability to leave a finish with a perfect shine sets it a step above standard film protections. As an added bonus, it comes with a lifetime warranty covering aspects such as fading and delamination.

    Want to Live Your Off-Road Dreams? Here's How!

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Nothing excites off-road enthusiasts like winding trails and rough terrain. Off-roading draws many drivers to purchase their Jeeps or high-performance SUVs in the first place. Most SUVs built to drive off-road will handle the bumps of basic trails without issue, but this guide to off-road performance shows drivers how off-road vehicle maintenance and upgrades can take their adventures to the next level.

    Regular Maintenance:

    • Your SUV is designed to handle tough road conditions and high-speed driving. However, even the best off-roading machine will begin to underperform without regular maintenance. The high-horsepower engine of your Jeep, for example, won’t be able to conquer a steep incline when it’s overheated—even relatively small repair issues can cause a problem out on the trail. Be sure to keep your machine in good repair to ensure next off journey ends with success.

    Off-Road Modifications:

    • SUV owners can make further enhancements to their off-road machine with professional vehicle improvements. Body lifts, for example, make it easier for large vehicles with big wheels to tackle a variety of challenges. Auto body shops can also do work to upgrade the vehicle’s limited differential for improve traction. Lastly, most SUV owners upgrade their off-road machine by adding skid plates or rocker panel protection. These enhancements make off-roading safer for the driver and the vehicle.

    Conditional Maintenance:

    • Drivers can also prep their SUVs for off-road driving with weather-specific adjustments. For example, “airing down” is a popular technique used for off-roading in heavy snow. This small air pressure decrease helps tires to get better traction on ice-packed turns. Drivers should also be diligent in cleaning their vehicles after muddy trips to avoid off-road problems. Grime-packed suspension components, for example, can cause a loss of control and handling issues.

    Dave's Body Shop does more than expert collision repair. We can also help off-road champions get their SUV in great shape for the trail. Contact us at (801) 566-3906 for more information on our off-road modification crew.

    Angie Talks About Tire Safety and Performance

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Good tires do more than protect against flats. In fact, the quality of your tires actually impacts the performance of your vehicle in many ways. This video from Angie’s list shows you everything you need to know about keeping your tires healthy.

    Drivers can learn a lot about tire maintenance from Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks. Your tires influence the handling, traction, and fuel economy of the vehicle. Keep your tire maintenance up to date to ensure your vehicle stays out of the repair shop and far from the gas pump.

    Tire performance checks are especially important after an accident. That’s why so many customers trust their post-impact inspection to Dave’s Body Shop. Contact our collision repair shop at (801) 566-3906 to learn how we can get your entire vehicle back into perfect shape.
