Here are five quick and inexpensive ways to bring your car's appearance back to life: 1 - Nothing beats a simple, but thorough wash and wax. The results are worth the time and effort. 2 - Thoroughly clean the interior of your car. Use Armor All, or a similar product, on the dash, door panels, and even overhead or anywhere else it can be used. Use q-tips or cotton swabs to clean the air vents. Use a carpet cleaner on the floors, overhead if you have upholstery, and also on your cloth seats. Also, clean your windows inside as well as outside. 3 - Replace your steering wheel if you are able to. If you have an air bag, this could challenging and maybe expensive. However, anybody can add a leather steering wheel cover. Darker colors, such as black, look best in my opinion. But that's just my opinion! 4 - Replace your old and worn wheel covers or hub caps. 5 - Replace your old and faded emblems. Thanks for reading some of my ideas. What do you do to keep up your car's appearance? - Eric
Excellent guide. I wash my car in a similar way to how you wash your's, which is starting from the roof and working downward. However, you are much more thorough than me! How about cleaning the inside? What do you suggest for that job? Thanks, Eric
Red Diesel, I also have a 90's model Corolla, mine is a 93. The best way I've found to protect the body is simply to keep a layer of wax on it at all times. It's worth the extra effort in my opinion. Just like you, I don't want to get rid of mine. It's paid for, reliable, and gets great milage! Eric, in California
