Can I wash my car after repairs?

Recommendation and precautions in the first 30 days


-Wash the vehicle 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 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

-Avoid parking under trees and utility lines which are likely to attract birds. bird droppings have high acid content and will damage freshly painted surface

-Do not drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days

-Do not spill gasoline , oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid, or windshield solvent on the new finish

-Do not scrape ice or snow from newly painted surface. Scrapers can act like a paint scapers on a newly painted finish. 

-Do not wax or polish the vehicle at home.
