Dressing Rubber Gaskets

Gaskets that aren’t maintained will lead to damage, either in the form of fading or cracks. As you let your gaskets get worse, they begin to exponentially wear down to the point where air and water will leak into your windows and doors. If you’ve ever driven through a carwash or raining weather and felt sprinkles of water hit your skin, you know how alarming a leaking gasket can be. In addition to water in your car being an unpleasant surprise, it can also lead to further interior damage.

Here at The Best Detail, we recommend that gaskets are detailed at least once a year. It will keep trim in the best condition possible as well as eliminate waxy residue that builds up over time from trees and car waxing.

Dressing Plastic Trim

Black plastic trip can become faded or stained with white spots very quickly without the proper care. In order to prevent this from happening, the plastic surfaces on your care have to be blocked off from oxidation in the same way that metal is covered with paint to keep it from rusting. Luckily, our professionals have a wide range of plastic trim products that are designed to restore plastic surfaces and protect them for years to come. Our team’s dressing techniques are also continuously improved, and we train our employees in new methods every year in order to stay up to date and provide cutting edge results.

Auto Vinyl Detailing

In the same way that plastic and rubber can become damaged by hot and cold temperatures, UV rays, and debris, so can vinyl that’s used in hundreds of car parts. Did you know that vinyl makes up the bumpers of some cars, wheel wells, weather seals, trim, and dozens of other parts? This is because vinyl polymers are very affordable and customizable. They are also strong, light, and can resist oxidation. However, they are not indestructible.

Vinyl will still wear down over time as it comes into contact with UV rays, air, heat, black snow, sand, tar, and other contaminants. These factors will then lead to weaker structure, fading, scratches, dull colors, cracking and various other problems. At The Best Detail we work hard to document the chemistry of all types of polymers and what the best products are to clean them, restore them, and protect them.

Our team is ready to help you protect your vinyl surfaces from degrading due to light, weathering, and various other reasons. To learn more about our services, give us a call at (702) 494-8097 and we will be more than happy to help.
