Ready to be equipped with some new or upgraded equipment?
Car expert Richard Binder from Caravans Australia has got you covered.
The expert says it is essential to ensure you keep your car looking its best and get the latest technology as soon as possible.
“If you don’t do that you are going to be spending money in the long run,” he says.
He says to avoid long-term damage to your car, it is best to get as much of the latest tech in as quickly as possible and avoid spending more money on upgrading later.
Mr Binder says that once you have upgraded your vehicle, you need to make sure it remains as it was before.
If you’ve got a new car, and you’ve upgraded to a newer model, you can buy a new battery, a new alternator and an engine rebuild kit to get it running again.
This means that the engine will work for another 10 to 15 years and the engine oil, spark plugs and seals will be replaced.
You also need to take care of the car’s engine bay, engine covers and tyres.
Binder recommends washing the vehicle before you put it into service and cleaning the inside of the vehicle.
Car care expert Richard says you should keep the vehicle in a dry place for the first few weeks after it has been upgraded.
It should then be stored in a cool, dry place and kept away from the elements for the next few years.
When it is ready to be serviced, the car needs to be cleaned and maintained to avoid damage to the vehicle and any rust that may be present.
Richard says that if you have any rust, you should wash it with a mixture of water, a mild soap and dish soap and leave it to dry.
After a year, if you’ve been using a new or older engine, it should be inspected to see if any damage has been caused to the engine or any parts.
As an example, if the engine is old and it has had rust removed, it can be used to replace the engine.
Then, you might also need a check to see how long it has sat on the engine bay.
And if the vehicle has had some wear and tear, Mr Binder recommends replacing the wheels and tyres with the latest tyres.
If you have bought a car before and want to keep it running, you may want to make some repairs to the body.
To do this, Mr Vickers recommends cleaning and replacing the air vents with a new air compressor.
Another option is to replace a cracked or worn window cover or any other damage to that part of the body that might have been caused by the engine running.
In a car that is not old, Mr Dettie says the most effective way to prevent damage is to have the engine in its original condition before you start servicing.
At the end of the day, you want to ensure that the vehicle you are getting is as new and new as possible, he says, but if you want the car to last a long time, the most important thing is to get the best possible service.
