And, Now that your car looks like new again...
We recommend that you follow these simple precautions

allow the finish to dry and harden completely.
(Do not use silicone containing waxes or
In the first 30 days...
- Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes
or sponges could mar the finish and damage the
surface. Wash the vehicle by hand with cool water
and a very mild wash solution. Be sure to use a
soft cloth or sponge.
- Wash the vehicle in the shade - never in the sun.

transmission fluid or windshield solvent on the
new finish. If you do...immediately rinse off
with water. Do not wipe.

snow scraper can act like a paint scraper if the
finish is new. Brush off the loose material with
a soft snow brush.

you should wash it off as soon as possible. It
will damage the fresh paint job.
