We Recommend Following These Simple Precautions In The First Few Months Of Your New Paint Finish Life:

In The First 90 Days:

• Do not wax or polish the vehicle—this will allow the finish to dry and harden completely. (Do not use silicone-containing waxes or polishes.)

In The First 30 Days:

• Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface. Wash the vehicle by hand with cool water and a very mild car wash solution. Be sure to use a soft cloth or sponge.

• Wash the vehicle in the shade—never in the sun.

• Do no "dry wipe" the vehicle—always use clean water. Dry wiping could scratch the finish. 

• Extreme heat and cold are to be avoided. Keep the vehicle parked in the shade whenever possible.

• Do not drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days. 

• Do not park under trees which drop sap or near factories with heavy smoke fallout. Sap & industrial fallout will damage a freshly painted surface. 

• Trees are also likely to attract birds. Bird droppings have a high acid content and will damage a freshly painted surface. They should be washed off as soon as possible. 

• Do not spill gasoline, oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid or windshield solvent on the new finish. If you do…IMMEDIATELY rinse off with watery.


• Do not scrape ice or snow from the surface. Your snow scraper can act like a paint scraper if the finish is new. Brush off the loose material with a soft snow brush.
