Old cars have the habit of making the owner feel run down and downtrodden. If this is the case, it might be time to take the time to boost an old car’s self esteem and create good habits to keep your car new and vibrant.
1. Clean even the darkest corners in the interior.
Take the extra time to care for the inside of your car. This means vacuuming, wiping the interior, and paying attention to the parts that probably haven’t been cleaned for years. The thing to remember with an old car is that it has lived many years for dust and waste to build up and go unnoticed.
2. Replace outdated electronics.
Your stereo system and speakers may be extremely outdated because of the age of your car. Maybe it is time to relieve that blown speaker and even replace your whole stereo system. Stereo systems do not have to cost an arm and a leg, and it is even a plus if you can install it yourself or have a friend who knows how.
3. Replace headlight lenses.
Most old cars have a type of foggy musk over the headlight lenses. If this is the case, a small purchase of new headlight lenses might make a big difference in the outer appearance of your old car.
4. Keep your internal air fresh.
Buying a cheap air freshener and getting your air filter replaced can make a world of difference in the freshness of your interior. An air filter replacement can not only save your gas and, in turn, save you money, but your air will come out strong and fresh.
5. Refresh your paint job.
Set out some money to detail your paint job. Most times, old cars are in need of a new paint job or detailing. Your car is the second highest expense in your life, so taking good care of it should not be out of the question.
These are just a few ideas to make a step in the right direction to revive your old car’s self esteem. There are many ways to give it a tune up, but every little bit helps.
