Create Long Term Advertising With Custom Auto Sun Shades

Custom auto sun shades placed in cars are mainly used for 2 reasons. The first reason that a person would use these car sunshades is to help reduce the heat in the vehicle. The second reason to use auto sun shades is to prevent people from seeing into the car or vehicle. This is especially useful when shopping and when items purchased are left in the car. The old saying out-of-sight, out-of-mind comes into play here.

Businesses like to offer car sunshades that are custom printed with their logo or message. Just think of the advertising value created from handing out a useful promotional car sun shade with a company’s logo message in exchange for the receiver to use and promote the message by placing the custom auto sun shade on the windshield of their car.

The types of companies that use car sun shades in their marketing and advertising planning are: car dealers, insurance companies, auto parts stores, companies whose parking areas are in high sunlight areas.

Non-profit groups and associations who look for unique fund-raising methods, also look to promote their association or event by selling custom printed promotional sunshades. A unique way to help offset the cost of the imprinting cost and purchase of the sunshades is to look for a sponsor. The sponsor’s logo can be added to the imprint onto the car sunshades in exchange for advertising dollars spent. This will reduce the cost to the fundraiser group thus increasing the expenses and increasing profits. These car sunshades will actually reduce the overall heat in the vehicle by a few degrees as well as reduce the heat of the seats and steering.

Another reason to consider vehicle sunshades is that they have a long advertising life and are considered a valuable item by car owners. Seek out a promotional products distributor for the sunshade options available where a logo can be imprinted onto.

Custom Auto Painting Can Make Your Car Look Great

When deciding what car paint shop should paint your car there are a lot of things to think about. First of all you need to decide if your going to put a custom paint job on your car; then the hard work starts. After all, this is your car, your classic beauty, the perfect car for you.

If your not going to custom paint your car, all you need to know is what body shops will do a complete paint job. A collision shop makes a lot more money doing spot repair work on paint, or paintless dent removal. A lot of shops these days will not even consider doing a complete paint job, let alone a full on custom paint job. You really need to do your research about the different shops in your area. Most shops that do custom paint work are not the one that specialize in collision repair work.

You should also check out all of the shops that you research through the BBB, or your local Chamber Of Commerce. You should also ask the shops owners, or their managers for a list of references of people who have had car paint work done there in the past. If they refuse to provide you with a list of references, you should look deeper in to the shop’s history before you take your car there. It also pays to make sure that the shop has been in business for a long time, this will help do away with the fly by night shop owners.

Remember that the key idea here is to get exactly what you want in a paint job. You should never have to convince an owner of any shop that they should do your custom car paint work. I am a huge promoter of the automotive industry, but also a huge promoter of getting it done right.

Custom car paint, or a complete paint job will cost a lot of money; so you need to pay attention to every detail of the process. For just a complete repaint on your car it should take around 40 hours of work, most shops run at $60.00 – $75.00 per hour. In essence this works out to about $3,000 in just labor, and supplies can easily run from $1,000 – $3,000 so be ready for the pricing structure. This is the area where you can begin, and custom car paint will cost more due to masking, and application of the product, let alone the art work itself.

You can easily run a tab of $10,000 or more in custom auto paint work. Don’t be surprised if the bill looks like that either. Be ready for every event that might happen. If you pay attention to every detail you will get exactly what you want in a custom car paint job.

Custom Auto Interior – 3 Reasons to Consider Floorboard Re-Carpeting & Repair

Having your car’s floorboards re-carpeted is a moderate to large custom auto interior project, and one that you may want to consider having done, even before you undertake some other, more cosmetic projects. There are three primary reasons for having your car’s floorboards re-carpeted, and we’ll cover them in brief, below:

1 – To scout for and repair floorboard damage. Let’s face it, the parts of your car hidden beneath carpet are parts that are rarely seen, and this presents a rare opportunity to observe the condition of the metal beneath the carpet. A good custom auto interior specialist will not simply replace your carpet, but inform you of structural damage and repair that for you as well! This is especially important if you’ve bought the vehicle used, and are unaware of its history.

2 – If you’re restoring a classic car and want to return it to like-new condition. A great many classic cars have badly rusted floorboards. Undertaking this project not only reveals them so they can be repaired, but greatly enhances both the value and the overall soundness of your vehicle!

3 – Custom Auto Interior enthusiasts will definitely want to incorporate re-carpeting as part of an overall push toward remaking all the interior spaces of the vehicle, so for them, it would be on the “must have” list!

Unless you’re having work done on a car you’re very familiar with, or something like a kit car, you’re probably going to want to have those carpets replaced (or at least taken up) as part of a general sounding of the vehicle to check for underlying damage. And, if you’re doing a restoration or a general refurbishment, then a carpet replacement (sans floorboard repairs) can be a fairly inexpensive addition to your overall plan.

This is but one of a great number of services that a good custom auto interior specialist can perform for you.

Are You Looking Into Custom Auto Interiors?

When thinking of custom auto interiors, different things may come to mind. Being custom, each car that is modified is it’s own unique work of art. And what was true then, is still true today, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I think what most young people tend to think of is “tricking out” the car. These custom auto interiors tend to lean toward the lavish and extravagant. For instance, televisions in cars are a big thing now. Mini Vans and SUV’s are putting them in most of their vehicles now. But that is one tiny little screen up near the head of the car and all five to six people in the back have to all agree on the same show. So now you can put a TV screen in the back of each seat. Each TV can work independently from the other, allowing each child to watch what they will. Also, all those different shows running at once would make a heck of a racket, so each will come with it’s own jack for headsets so that the driver won’t be distracted, and the kids won’t have a volume war.

Another popular trend in custom auto interiors is to restore old classic cars. There can be such satisfaction in taking a fifty year old car and restoring it back to it’s original glory. Some people like to keep it exact. Don’t add a thing that wasn’t there when it rolled off the factory floor. Others like to make things a little more unique, like using colors in the interior that weren’t offered back when the car was made. Still others, are thinking the car is great, but air conditioning is just a wonderful invention and should be added. Or maybe they really want to play their iPod in the car, so they update the stereo.

Just about anything you can think of can be done to a car. There are enough shows on TV now-a-days to prove that. They do the most outlandish unpractical things to cars, just to prove they can.

But if you are thinking of doing an interior on your own car, take a look around at what is out there. You may be surprised at all the details and options there are out there for you to consider.
