If you’re traveling to an auto show this spring or summer to showcase your classic automobile, you may want to avoid actually exposing your vehicle to the road. Unfortunately, it is very easy to ruin your paintjob even if you take all the precautions you can. Let’s take a look at some of the things that can ruin your car’s paintjob and why having a trailer is so important.

Bugs: Bugs are not only annoying. They can do some serious damage to your paint job. That’s because of the acidity of the bugs. You can’t just scrub off the bugs. You need to get a specialty bug cleaner to get the acid off, but even then you risk damage if the bugs aren’t taken off right away.

Tree Sap: This is another problem that comes with the warmer months. As trees begin to come back during spring, the wax could manifest and fall on your parked car. Tree sap is notoriously difficult to get off and should only be attempted with a goo-off from an automotive shop. If you try to just wipe it off with a cloth, it will generally spread.

Bird Droppings: There’s no avoiding this unfortunately. Clean up for bird droppings can be difficult as they are acidic as well. You will have to act as soon as possible to get these off without damaging your paint.

These are just a few of the ways you can damage your paint on the road. From road debris to mischief or even water spots from automatic sprinklers, there are a million ways to damage the paint job of your collectible automobile as you transport it. The most prudent course of action to take is to put in an enclosed car trailer.
