                      Care for your car's new paint job



1. For the first few nights after painting,We recommend that you keep the car in a garage or enclosed area this reduces the chance of acids from bird droppings or tree sap from damaging fresh paint.

2. Should bird droppings or tree sap fall on your car,remove immediatley with a soap formulated specifically for washing cars.The acids in these substances will damage your finish.

3. Wait a minimum of 30 days before using a car cover or a commercial car wash.

4. High-pressure hoses and brushes at a wash may damage your paint.We suggest using only soft cotton towels or sponges when washing your car. A brushless car wash is better for keeping your car looking new.

5. Do not wax or polish your car for at least 60 days.Use only a good quality car wax or polish that is free of abrasive cleaning agents.Abrasive materials can mar and dull your finish.   

6. Polish/wax  your car at least once every 4 months,with polish/wax  specifically for car finishes.
