During This May Gray & June Gloom, Think Of Your Car

The weather is currently cloudy and gloomy during May Gray in San Diego, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take steps to protect your car.

For those unfamiliar, San Diego weather in May and June tends to be overcast and cloudy because of the marine layer, which generally persists until the afternoon. Contrast that to the generally warm and sunny days after July, which can wreak havoc on your car’s paint job if you park it outside.

During May Gray and June Gloom, the cloudy skies mean protection from the sun for your vehicle. Counterintuitively, this makes it the perfect time to look into local ceramic coating on your vehicle.

These types of ceramic coatings can help protect your car’s paint job, but they take time to do their best work. If you apply a coating when the weather is generally mild and cloudy, the protection will have more time to cure before the summer sun kicks in — meaning it’ll be more effective at defending your car’s paint.

It’s worth noting that the same goes for window tinting. The longer you let these aftermarket coatings cure, the better they’ll turn out.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so while the weather is mild and cool and cloudy, you should absolutely take steps to protect your vehicle! Luckily for those in America’s Finest City, San Diego is actually the best city in California for drivers, so maintaining your car should be easier than in other metro areas.
