Detailing a New Car

imageJust because a vehicle is new, doesn’t mean that it does not need to be detailed and preserved. By the time a car is produced, routed, transported and eventually sold to the end user, sometimes 8-16 weeks can pass by. So what’s so important about only 8-16 weeks? Well during this time the paint is subject to environmental fallout, rail dust (during transport) and other pollutants that if left untreated, will damage the paint on your new car. As illustrated in the photo, are contaminates removed from the hood of a 2016 Chevrolet Colorado with only 274 miles.

imageOnce the detailing clay is used to remove the contaminants, then it is important to protect the untreated paint with a quality carnauba wax. Carnauba wax is a simple to apply sacrificial coating that is designed to fill microscopic pours in the paint making it smoother and better at repelling water and future contaminates. The periodic use of a quality wax will ensure the long term life of the paint long after the new car smell is gone!
