Car Care Guidelines

In the first 90 days

…..Do not wax or polish the vehicle----this will allow the finish to harden completely.  Do not use waxes or polishes which contain silicone.

In the first 30 days:

  • Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or wheels 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 soft sponge. Wash it in the shade.
  • Do not "dry wipe" the vehicle-always use clean water. Dry wiping could scratch.
  • Do not drive on gravel roads to avoid chipping the finish prior to final hardening.
  • Do not park under trees as sap could drop on the paint.
  • Do not park near factories with industrial fallout.
  • Remove any bird droppings immediately as they have high acid content which will do damage to a painted surface.
  • Do not spill gasoline, oil. Antifreeze, transmission fluid, windshield solvent or other chemicals as they can cause damage to the paint surface.
  • Do not scrape ice or snow from the surface. Your ice scraper will act as a paint scraper.
  • Avoid extreme heat or cold wherever possible and keep the vehicle garaged or shaded.
