few maintenance tips:
wash: Avoid car washes! Hand wash your vehicle with a non-detergent
liquid soap, in the shade as much as possible. Then wipe it with a
clean cloth or a shammy. In Winter, wash with warm water.
maintenance: Immediately remove with water any trace of gasoline,
antifreeze or windshield washer liquid which might have spilled by
accident. Sap from trees and birds' droppings can also damage a car's
finish. They can be quickly removed with mild soap and water. Snow
and ice must be removed with a brush. Never use a scraper. It could
easily scratch the paint.
paint: If you notice scratches or chipping of the paint caused
by stones or other road hazards, you must immediately make the necessary
paint touch-up in order to prevent any damage and avoid rust formation.
and polishing: For single coat finishes, you must wait at least
thirty days before applying wax. Two step finishes with a clear coat
need less frequent polishing, only once or twice per year. Carefully
hand polishing using a mild and non-abresive cleaning wax.
