Protecting the Body Work
Let us start of by taking care of the body work. It is a good idea to give the car’s exteriors a through wax-polish every weekend as opposed to a usual monthly polish. The rain has a tendency to wash away the polish / coat that necessitate the shorter periodicity. The wax polish / coat will, to an extent, prevent the car’s paintwork from getting scratched and torn due to the sharp particles in the muck that gets splattered on the bodywork.
If your paint already has cuts in it due to dings and dents, it is recommended that you get the blemished part treated. Rain water can enter these cuts and the constant presence of moisture can lead to rusting. If you stay in a sea-side place like Mumbai, then the presence of road salts can also lead to corrosion of the metal under such paint cuts. It is also recommended that the car be washed thoroughly every now and then to clean out any road salts that may be piling up in the nooks and corners of your car.

He is called "Rash" for a reason. He loves his toys, this boy. If it's cool, he's either got it or most probably gotten tired of it by the time you've discovered it. His one dear aim is to convert every Windows and Android user into a customer for Apple.
