Mustang Car Care – Everything You Want to Know

Congratulations, you’re a proud Mustang owner! Maybe you’d dreamed of owning a Mustang for many years and now that you have your own, you want to make that Mustang shine like no other. Time to learn everything you can about Mustang car care and put that Mustang on display.

Mustang Car Care Tips

We recommend using Croftgate Products. Their car care products are top of the line, work great for Mustang care and contain non hazardous ingredients.

Shiny Mustang wheels are like flashing a bright white smile, it makes everyone feel good. We start with washing the rims, tires and body panels. Why? That’s where the most dirt and grime is, so its good to clear that away first (hold off on tire shine though, until you finish the rest of the car). We recommend using a soft brush or cloth to clean the wheels, like a flexible nylon brush. Rims may be durable but if you want to keep them gleaming, don’t use anything that could leave minor scratches. Be sure to rinse the soap off thoroughly with a hose.

Next, give your Mustang a good rinse and start washing from top to bottom. Its best to use a microfiber mitt and two buckets, one for washing the car and one for rinsing the dirt off the mitt. If you do this, you’ll likely be able to keep dirt swirls from forming as you clean. After rinsing off your Mustang, take the pressure nozzle off the hose and let the water stream over the entire vehicle. This will help you avoid waters spots. Dry your Mustang thoroughly using a chamois or microfiber cloth. If you have access to a compressor, you can blow air into grills and other areas to remove water.

Preventative Mustang Car Care

Now that you’ve learned the basics in exterior Mustang care, its good to think ahead. For preventative Mustang Car Care we recommend Front Bumper Mask and Mirror Covers from Novistretch. Check out the video below to learn why and be sure to contact Dallas Mustang if you have any questions.

About Tim Worlitz

I started working on cars when I was 13 years old and have spent the last 35 years in the automotive industry. After graduating from San Gorgonio High School in San Bernardino, CA, I was able to attend San Bernardino Valley College, Cal Poly Pomona, and USC earning Associate of Science, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and Master of Science in Systems Engineering Degrees. I have been fortunate to work in the OEM, OES, Aftermarket, and SEMA automotive segments focused primarily in design engineering, manufacturing, and operations management. I started my professional career at the Subaru of America Tech Center involved in HVAC, Cruise Control, and Accessory Development which allowed me to spend time working with engine and chassis dynometers, data acquisition in lab and field environments cold weather testing in places like International Falls, MN @-40F, hot weather testing in Death Valley, CA @+122F, and conducting vehicle test data acquisition for HVAC and NVH on various closed circuit test tracks in Arizona. While at Subaru I was driver and one of several team engineers involved in setting two Bonneville land speed records in I/Pro class at the 1988 & 1989 Speed Weeks...a record that still stands today. From Subaru, I went on to work stints as Director of Engineering at Thermal Dynamics and Fluidyne Racing Products, Director of Engineering at Wynn's Climate Systems, and General Manager at Standard Motor Products / Four Seasons Mfg Division with operations in US and Mexico. Seeking to exit the rigors of international travel and corporate politics, I became President of Tuskerstone, Inc dBA Dallas Mustang Parts & Accessories in 2015. I am a member of SAE, ASME, & ASQ professional organizations as well as Tau Beta Pi & Pi Tau Sigma national engineering honor societies.
