What Causes The New Car Smell?

The new car smell is unforgettable. Do you remember buying a brand new car? No previous owner, low mileage, sparkling paint and that interior smell? Ahh! 

For many, the new car smell evokes a clean, fresh, unspoiled feeling. Years after that purchase, car owners are chase that new car scent. They buy air fresheners hoping to keep or recapture that feeling. 

The scent is produced by new plastics and vinyl releasing gas. All surfaces are bare: seats, dash, console, panels, and carpets. Nothing at the dealership has been added to the car creating this scent. There is no exact new car smell. The actual odor varies based on the interior makeup. It may include hints of leather and or metal. Once completely released, the scent goes away. 

Therefore, you will lose the new car smell. Remember, that odor you love so much is a mixture of gases. Instead of the new car scent, you should strive for a clean scent.

If have questions about interior odors or want a clean and fresh interior, please contact Red Clay Detailing at 404-419-6882. You will receive a clean odorless interior. If desired, you can add the “bottled” new car scent, afterwards

1986 BMW M6 Faded Paint

The owner wanted to bring the 1986 BMW M6 paint back to life. It had sat under a car port for years.

First, the car needed a bath. The BMW was cleaned of all the dirt, dust, debris, and leaves. This allowed for a better inspection of the paint.

Put mildly, the unpreserved 30 year old paint was in poor shape. It was dull and faded. It was covered in water spots and deep scratches. The BMW M6 required sanding and heavy compound polishing with wool pad.

After removing the scratches and water spots, the paint gloss was not at its best. It still need further refining. One more step was needed: polishing.

Polishing the paint removed any haze from compounding. It made the paint pop! The M6 hasn’t look this good in a long time. Who knows how long it sat without any real love and care?
