Do you know what happens when the inside of your car gets as hot as a sauna?

WE LOVE:

  • Our car interior to look as beautiful, with all of its components’ colors to stay as deep and vibrant… as the day we bought it

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Intense light and heat make colors fade quicker… and faded seat covers make our car look old
  • Colors on fabrics and plastics are hard to match to each other… and they fade at different rates
