I did my new truck the first time this week and had to Use Paint cleaner, polish then wax it becuse as you know when they sit on the lot they get pretty dirty over time. My truck was built late Nov 2004 so it had some grime on it for sure.
Now all I have to do is run it through a car wash then wax it again later this year. It's easy to keep up with it once you have a good coat of wax on it.
My 96 Sentra still looks like glass and it's almost 10 years old.
ive been doing some research and it looks like, for durabitlity they say to use a paint sealant. It applies similar to wax, but after you apply it you must let it sit overnight without dew getting on the paint.
I guess it doesnt give quite as deep of look as a good wax, but its very close- they say you cant even tell the difference. The big difference though is, it lasts 12 months! It sounds like the way to go, im gonna pick up a bottle today and i may get around to it tonite
well my dad showed me the problem. first off, i didnt have the hood completely dry and it hazed the entire hood! the second problem was i didnt switch rags and was using one soaked with wax which was just smearing it. please dont call me stupid, this was my first time. i do a good wash though...
to dry the paint, i have a 97 cent squeege that works for windows and body. it leaves no streaks, no scratches, just leaves a nice shine. man i do love the 97 cent sale at walmart! got a wash brush, bucket, 40 ounces of wash, interior detal brush, tire brush, and squeege all for 97 cents a piece lol.
yeah and have thousands of poverty sticken people work even longer hours to make up that sale I just watched a documentary about walmart's suppliers, it was pretty horrible the sort of work those people do, but then again you cant call it slave labor if theyre not forced to be doin it.
