While paint is still fresh (first 60 days) avoid parking your vehicle anywhere that substances could come in contact with it. This includes under trees, where bird droppings or sap could fall on the new pint. If droppings sap or bug splatters do get on your vehicle, they should be washed off as soon as possible due to the acidic effect. Be careful when adding fluid (gas, oil, etc.,) to your vehicle. The chemicals in the fluids could damage the new paint. Do no use a scraper on any of the paint.

When washing your vehicle within the first 60 days, do not use a commercial car wash. Their equipment can cause damage. Using mild car wash soap (NOT household detergent) and clean fresh water, hand-wash your vehicle with a clean, soft wash cloth or sponge. Make sure your vehicle’s surface is cool to the touch and in the shade to avoid water spots. Waxing is not recommended within these fist 60 days, but should become a regular part of your vehicle maintenance after this period. We suggest waxing your vehicle at least 3 times per year.
