11 Jul Genius Hacks for Making Your Old Car Look Brand New

Not everyone has the money to drop on a new car, but that doesn’t mean your old ride can’t look brand new! There are so many different ways you can give an old car new life. With a little time and a lot of love, you can have your vehicle looking it’s best.

Cleaned and Detailed

Taking the time to thoroughly clean both the inside and outside of your car can go a long way. If you don’t have that kind of time, there are plenty of places that will professionally detail your car. Organize the inside of your car, vacuum and throughly clean the interior, thoroughly clean your cup-holders, etc. For the outside there are tons of tricks to help you get your car sparkling again. Try the toothpaste hack to clean your headlights, or wipe your windshield wipers with rubbing alcohol to prevent smudges.

New Wheels

Not only are new wheels much safer, they go a long way towards making your car look sporty and new. If your vehicle already has new tires, you can try using a tire-storing product like Forever Black Tire Gel Dye. It paints your tires to make them look new, and also creates a barrier against damage from debris, dust, and UV rays.

Window Tint

Nothing says sleek and modern like well done window tints. New window tints will cover any blemishes, fading, or chips, while also creating a cooler interior. Having your windows tinted professionally is recommended, but there are options for doing it yourself.

Vinyl Wrap

If you want to go a step further than window tints, why not go for a custom vinyl wrap? Way less expensive than a brand new paint job, a vinyl wrap will give you tons of color and pattern options for a fraction of the cost. This is a great inexpensive way to cover up any superficial damage that has happened to your vehicle over time. The color choices are almost limitless, including color-shifting wraps, carbon fiber, and tons of different patterns.

Steering Wheel

For less than $100 you can replace your car’s steering wheel. If you have a dirty and worn down steering wheel, consider replacing it with a new unit. Whether you go with a different color, something slick, or a unique shape, it’ll be a fantastic upgrade. If you don’t want to splurge on a new wheel, you could always get a new cover too.

Seat Covers

By now your seat covers are probably at least a little worn down. There’s a huge array of custom seat covers on the market, with tons of colors, patterns, and textures to choose from.  And all you have to do is slip them over your seat for a brand new look.
