Aftercare Instructions

 

Thank you for choosing Revive!

We hope you’re happy with your repair and the service you received from us.

Some things, like washing your car too soon, can damage your repair.  Read the Aftercare Instructions below to keep your vehicle looking great for as long as possible.

 

Bodywork Repairs

A minimum period of 5 days must be allowed immediately after completion of the work before applying any form of abrasive contact with the repaired area. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of any cleaning chemicals and automatic car washes.

The repaired area must therefore not be handled, washed or polished during this period

After this period, the vehicle paintwork should be cared for in accordance with the guidelines provide in the vehicle manufacturer’s aftercare handbook.

 

Alloy Wheel Repairs

Please be aware that the use of high power jet washes or automated car washes can have an aggressive effect on refurbished finishes and can potentially remove the paint surface from wheels around small chips. For best results and paint finish durability, please follow the guidelines in this document.

A minimum period of 5 days must be allowed immediately after completion of the work before applying any form of abrasive contact with the refurbished alloy wheel/s. (7 days in cold conditions when the paint may take longer to cure). This includes but is not limited to the use of any cleaning chemicals and automatic car washes.  Refurbished alloy wheels must therefore not be handled, washed or polished during this period, nor should tyres be changed within 7 days of the repair.

Any subsequent damage caused under these circumstances within this period is not covered by our guarantee of workmanship. After this period, we recommend that refurbished alloy wheels should be cleaned using warm water and a non-abrasive cloth or brush.

 

SPECIAL NOTICE ONLY WHERE WHEELS HAVE BEEN REMOVED: If your wheels have been removed during the repair please note that vehicle manufacturers recommend final wheel nut tightening after 20 miles of fitting. We recommend that this practice is observed.
