We all know that the sun can cause cracking and fading paint. Covering your car is the best way to protect it from the sun. However, if covering your car is not possible then you need to take extra precautions when protecting your vehicle. 

Windshield Sun Protector. Cover your entire windshield with a thick and heavy duty tarp. This will block out the heat from the sun and keep the inside of your car cooler. 

Use a Micofiber Cloth on the DashBoard. Dust, debris, and dirt will not only cause scratches but a build up that can cause heat. 

Use Seat Covers. A good quality seat cover will protect your seats from sunlight and heat. If your seats are leather the seat cover will protect it from cracking and burning. 

Wash Your Car Often. Long-term exposure to the sun will cause a lot of cracking and painting. When you wash your car frequently, you help remove the dirt and dust particles. This causes  micro scratches in the paint which will aid in the paint chipping. 

Wax Your Car Often. Waxing your car will not only make it shiny and smooth but it will also help protect your car  from the sun.
