New Auto Paint Care Recommendations for the First 30 Days
If washing the vehicle, only wash by hand with cool water and a very mild car
wash solution using a soft cloth or sponge.
Always use clean fresh water.
Wash your vehicle in the shade
Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish
and damage the surface.
Do not "dry wipe" your vehicle. Dry wiping can scratch the finish.
Do not drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days.
Avoid parking under trees and utility lines which are likely to attract birds. Bird
droppings have a high acid content and will damage a freshly painted surface.
Also, tree sap can mar or spot a freshly painted surface.
Do not spill gasoline, oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid, or windshield solvent on
the new finish. · Do not scrape ice or snow from the newly painted surface.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND PRECAUTIONS IN THE FIRST 90 DAYS
Do not wax or polish the vehicle. This will allow the finish to dry and harden
