No one likes getting into a dirty car, and keeping your interior at showroom quality doesn’t have to involve expensive trips to a professional. You can do it right at home and all it’ll cost you is some time and a little elbow grease. Besides making your baby shine, detailing your car is a great way to get rid of hard to reach dirt, crumbs, and other debris left over from weeks (or sometimes years) of accumulation. Cleaning the inside of your windows and giving mats and carpets a deep vacuuming are other quick ways to drastically improve the overall appearance of your car’s interior. Taking the time to detail your car is a great final touch after a hard day’s work on the engine.
- New Seats/Upholstery
Think about this: ever get back in your car after sweating a lot? Where do you think most of that funk went? A lot of times it’s your car seats. Not only is this gross, but it can also lead to some pretty awful smells. As time goes on, your car seats are subjected spills, stains, fading, and normal wear and tear. Investing in some new seats or upholstery can completely change the appearance of your pride and joy. You can opt for the simple method of putting on some fresh covers, or, for the more ambitious DIY-ers, changing out the seats entirely. You can also accent your fresh new look by customizing your door panels or sun visors.
We’ve all heard that obnoxious rattling sound of a car’s old speakers, your favorite song forever tainted by the memory of a junky subwoofer. Even if you’ve upgraded your car’s stereo or head unit, it won’t make much of a difference if your sick beats are bumping through the same busted equipment thrown in on the assembly line. You can find car speakers, subwoofers, and amps pretty much anywhere in a wide array of styles and wattages, and they’re easier to install than you think. Upping your car’s audio game will surely lead to a much more enjoyable ride.
A car’s engine and drivability will always be the most important things to take care of in your vehicle. But, it’s just as crucial that your interior receives all the TLC it’s entitled to. You’ll be surprised by how much nicer your car will look by taking on any of these simple projects.
