Prepare Your Vehicle for Sunny Weather & Road Trips

Despite the brief (and unexpected!) snow this past Saturday, the weather is finally changing to a more enjoyable temperature. It’s time for road trips, picnics, outdoor games and more, which means your vehicle will accumulate plenty of dirt, sand, trash and all sorts of grime over the next 5-6 months.
Capitol Shine offers many services to help prepare your vehicle for the nicer weather, but there are many simple items you can do yourself. The previous harsh winter weather – including rain, ice, snow and sleet – can wear down certain areas of your car, truck van or SUV, so start by taking care of these items:
  • Replace the windshield wipers – the salt and ice have probably worn them down
  • Get an oil change – colder weather tends to wear oil down quicker
  • Consider adding some fuel cleaner to your gas tank
  • Add some washer fluid – especially if you have been using it as a de-icer (we can help with this)
  • Check the tire pressure – warmer weather will make them expand
Now it’s time for some detailing. Capitol Shine offers many services to get your vehicle ready including:
