How to fix up an old car on a dime

Whether you’re a high school student who was passed down an old car or a person enjoying the zero payments that come with your older model vehicle, perhaps you are hoping to spruce up your current ride without spending a bundle. You don’t have to do perform a car makeover like you see on television, the sort where LCD TVs are installed in the trunk, in order perform a vehicle facelift. A few simple updates can make a huge difference.

You don’t have to do perform a car makeover like you see on television, the sort where LCD TVs are installed in the trunk, in order perform a vehicle facelift. A few simple updates can make a huge difference.

If your car’s major flaw is the exterior, changes such as replacing the door handle covers will make for some improvement and cost you only around a hundred bucks. You could also consider replacing aspects such as the body side molding or hood vent. Vehicles with soft tops like Jeeps or convertibles can look brand new with new soft tops, plus they are a good investment, as they can prevent future or additional water damage to the interior.

Replacement parts can be purchased in order to improve your car’s functioning, and by buying the parts yourself you can save on dealership rates. From rotors or replacement brake pads, fuel injectors to pressure regulators, these parts are probably more cost-effective than you think.

The interior of a car is often easy and inexpensive to update. For example, new floor mats are fairly cheap and can have a big impact on the car’s overall attractiveness. Floor mats, as well seat covers, can even frequently be purchased to custom-suit your particular car. Another low-cost update could include a new steering wheel. New electronics such as a navigation system or an updated sound system would also bring a lot of pizazz to an older car. You could even install a multimedia station to play your favorite movies or video games. All of these additions can do a car wonders without breaking the bank.
