parking under the sun
« on: October 17, 2012, 09:46:26 AM »
we have a big parking lot sa company namin kaya lang it's not covered.
lahat kami dun lang nakapark, even yung mga boss.

may long term harmful effect ba yun sa car? sa paint, sa wheels?

saka yung wiper ba tinataas nyo rin? most of the people here ginagawa yun, ginagaya ko na lang din.  :)

mas mabilis mag fade ang paint ng car pag laging nakabilad sis.

The paint fades faster pag lageng babad sa init. At the same time, mas prone sa rust pag init-ulan.

One thing i have learned from my A1 lecture.

never ever park your car under the sun, for long hours.

kasi mabilis daw magdry o maubos tubig? correct me if i'm wrong.

Cars come with clear coat from the factory, its a sacrificial layer before the paint. However, to maintain the shiny appearance, you need to apply wax at least once a month. Also apply protectant to the plastic parts to avoid cracking and fading.

With regards to the interior, just install a quality tint like 3M and protectant for the dash.

Try optiguard, it should be applied by experts. Once a year to protect your paint from fading, rust and all. Once a year is good enough for one year protection..

Sayang naman pala car ko now, I don't do waxing for the car.  No time din kasi for me to leave it there and hangout in the tea place, wala naman wifi.

Had my new car installed with Huper Optik Ceramic 40 film all around (except the windshield) so it doesn't
get as hot after my car sits in the sun all day.  Will use windshield sun shades too so that the interior and dash
do not get too much of a beating sitting under the sun.  The bamboo steering wheel and remote touch controller
also got hot the first week when my car did not have films installed.

yes, hassle talaga to leave your car under the sun. kahit 30 minutes lang super asar na pagsakay.

we use sun shades for the wind shield para di masyado mainit pagsakay.

the wipers are lifted up para di matunaw ang rubber sa init ng windshield. i do that too - if i remember it. otherwise, mas madalas ako magpalit ng wipers kasi di na sya malinaw mag-wipe.

^very minimal naman siguro ang effect ng araw sa pagkaubos ng tubig. besides, madali lang naman palitan ang tubig and dapat rin palagi nichecheck para di mag-overheat.

i read something before about the fumes of the hot dashboard - dapat daw pasingawin muna when it's really hot. before isara lahat ng windows and turn the ac on. something about fumes of melting plastic.

sometimes when i have to park my car under the sun for long, i leave my four windows slightly open so as to avoid too much heat build up inside. BUT i make sure its in a secure spot first
