Many factors will effect how your paint will last over the years. For starters, you should get into the habit of correctly washing your car on a routine schedule. Products and techniques are really subjective, however, if you stick to the basic car washing techniques you will be in good shape. And as you develop greater experience through research and trial and error you will yield even greater results. For starters, any over the counter Clay Bar, and Carnuba wax product will enable you to keep your car's paint: clean, shiney, and protected. Just a word of caution, you may want to go easy on using any sort of abrasive paint cleaner on your vehicle excessively---using a Clay Bar is a safer techinique. The techinque I described is perfectly safe on a new car.slothorilla wrote:I posted this topic in another thread (caring-for-new-car-factory-paint-t525618.html), but I suppose this is a more appropriate place.
I want to keep my new car looking as new and shiny as possible, so aside from buying a clear bra, I'm wondering what's the best thing I can do to protect the paint? I am thinking about using some clay, then some Klasse All-In-One, followed by several applications of Klasse Sealant Glaze. Would this be prudent, or could I unintentionally be causing more harm than good?
