Auto Gutter

The Auto Gutter , provides protection for automobiles in multiple ways. It covers the gap between the hood and windshield. This is where your vehicle's cowl is located and where leaves, twigs, pine needles , and debris settles when parked near trees. Leaf debris can block windshield drain tubes that are located beneath the cowl. This can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs from rain water backing into the passenger cabin because of blocked drain tubes. Leaves retain moisture which can contribute to rust to the body of your vehicle and mold to the filters such as your cabin air filter. When you allow debris to stay in your cowl you are at risk for expensive repairs , because every time you start your motor the debris in your cowl gets sucked into the engine compartment and deeper into engine parts like air conditioning casings and evaporators. The Auto Gutter will also add life to windshield wipers and wiper blades.
