Professional grade results achievable by the everyman. That's the idea that 3M is trying to convey with their new DIY Car Care Range, and it's certainly something that will appeal to a broad range of car owners - from those looking to achieve a perfect finish on their car, to someone just trying to clean up a couple of rough patches on their paint. Our cars are subject to a hostile environment, and it takes a certain level of effort to get your car looking factory new - but this is no longer something you need to hire a professional for.
The launch of its DIY Car Care Range includes a number of products that covers a variety of issues that car owners face. One that may appeal to those who have older cars in particular would be the headlight restoration kit, which comes in a variety of grades depending on how far gone the headlights are. Even for a cautious car owner who avoids scratches and scuffs, and cleans their car regularly, a yellowed, hazy, oxidized headlight is fairly unavoidable. The restoration kit includes both abrasive pads and polish, providing a four-step process that allows you to return your headlights to their original factory finish.
A scratch and scuff removal kit is also made available, one that aims to clean up rough spots on your paintwork that don’t break the clear coat or eat into the paint. The two step process first smoothens out the afflicted area, while the rubbing compound restores the shine and gloss. Again, it’s a full kit that includes the abrasive pads and the rubbing compound, allowing you to achieve professional grade results in a matter of minutes.
Other notable items are the Leather and Vinyl Restorer, Quick Wax, and Auto Car Rubbing Compound – the first two are fairly self-explanatory, while the latter is a bigger bottle of the compound used for the scratch and scuff removal kit. While it’s not a huge catalogue of items on the whole, these items are more than enough for some light work on your car.
But more than the products is the fact that 3M has added their DIY Car Car Range to their official 3M Automotive Flagship Store on Lazada. This means that it’s easier than ever to purchase the products you want with just a few clicks, and have it delivered right to your doorstep through this highly versatile e-commerce website. The online store also includes the 3M Complete Fuel System Cleaner, 3M Glass Cleaner, and the 3M Tire Restorer in addition to the aforementioned DIY Car Care products.
