Custom Bubble Sun Shade

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

With summer almost here, blue skies and bright sun are just around the corner.  While we enjoy these days, the bright sun can damage your car.   Years of UV rays and intense heat can cause permanent damage to leather, upholstery, steering wheels, shift knobs and dashboards.  Left unprotected, these items can cost thousands to replace or refurbish.

One of the best ways to protect the interior of your car is with a custom bubble sun shade.  The custom bubble sun shade fits into the front window of your car and will shield the interior from the blazing hot sun.  It can also reduce interior temperatures of your car by 35 degrees Fahrenheit.  Not only will this keep the interior materials in better shape over time, but it will also reduce instances of  burning your legs, hands and elbows on the scorching hot leather after your car has been sitting in the sun all day.

Some features of the custom bubble shade include:

  • Multi-layered double bubble material with a metalized outer film which reflects UV rays
  • Reduces inside temperatures up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Protects leather seats from becoming hot and cracking
  • Keeps steering wheel and shift knob comfortable to the touch
  • Easy to roll up and with an attached Velcro strap makes item easy to stow
  • Finished with a UV resistant, non-abrasive velour binding
  • Lifetime Warranty

Spring Car Protection

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

As spring approaches, when April showers bring May flowers, the rain can produce more treacherous elements for your car’s interior.  The resulting dirt and mud can wreck havoc on a car, with most of the damage occurring to the floor area.  Stock OEM floor mats get dirty when wet and will eventually start to smell.  Over time, the water and dirt left behind can soak in and break down the materials.  Thus making them less effective at protecting the carpet beneath.

Now is the time to protect your car’s interior floor area before it gets permanently damaged.  Purchasing customized protective floor mats is a great way to ensure that your car’s interior floor area continues to look factory new.  Custom Auto Accessories provides many types of all-weather floor mats to fit your vehicle.  Each style is custom patterned to fit the make, model and year of your vehicle.  This is far better than the “off the shelf” types that are generic patterned and don’t specific fit your vehicle; leaving floor areas susceptible to dirt, grit and water.

All of our custom floor mats come with a lifetime warranty and a money back guarantee; so you can rest assured you are getting a great product.  Order today and you will also receive free shipping.

Safety Tips for Installing Auto Accessories

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

When purchasing accessories for your car, you want to make sure they are properly installed for safety reasons.  All of our products are rigorously tested to ensure high quality and safety.  However, if not properly used or installed, any product purchased from any supplier can be considered unsafe.  To help you get the most out of your products, we have compiled a list of things to do, to make sure you are as safe as you can be when installing custom auto accessories.

  • Before installing your new floor mats, remove the old ones. If you place your new mats on top of the old ones, this may not leave enough room for you to move the gas and brake pedals effectively.
  • Secure your floor mats to the floor.  Many vehicles have special hooks that secure the mat.  These hooks are there for your safety. If you do not use these hooks, your mat may slide into an unsafe position.  If your vehicle does not have hooks, place your floor mats securely and be certain that they do not  interfere with your pedals.
  • Only use mats that are designed for your car’s make and model.  If you buy the wrong mats, the fit could make it more difficult to reach and operate the pedals.

When you purchase any accessory for your car, it is important that you test it out before you take the car on the road.  Try driving around in an open area to ensure that the car is running smoothly. As always, safety is the highest priority.
