When can I wash and wax my vehicle?


DO

Do use a mild detergent and cool clean water when washing.  Do wash away any bird droppings (high acid content can ruin fresh paint) or tree sap (can mar or spot fresh paint) right away. Wash in the shade. Do wipe dry with a damp soft cloth.

DON’T

Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface. Don’t wash in direct sunlight whenever possible. Don’t wax or polish the vehicle.  Do not drive on gravel roads, chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days.  Don’t spill gasoline, oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid or windshield solvent on the new finish.  If you do, DON’T WIPE!  Immediately rinse off with mild detergent and water.  Do not scrape ice or snow from the newly painted surface.
