Q: After I pick up my vehicle, do I need to take any precautions with the new paint
A: Newly painted car care tips for first 60 days
Do not wash car with detergent within 30 days after your painted work is completed. When
necessary during these first thirty days, hose vehicle down with cool water only, wipe down
with cool water only, and wipe down with a soft cloth/shammy so as not to leave water spots.
After the initial 30-day period you may then wash your vehicle with a car wash detergent,
rinse well and wipe/dry with a soft cloth/shammy. Hand washing with a wash mittt is always
the best to keep finish looking new. Do not use dish soap or any other soap not designed for
automotive use. Only automotive/car soap is formulated so that it does not strip off the wax
and protective sealant from your vehicle's paint.
Wait 60 days for the new paint to cure before waxing. Avoid extreme heat or cold
temperature when waxing your car, and make sure no wax residue is left.
