I got the FC painted this week and I was so happy having a nice shiny car to drive around in, then today it rained and when the **** dried it left water spots all over the damn car. So after 4 days my questions are...
Am I allowed to wash it?
Am I allowed to rinse it off and chamois it?
What am I not allowed to use besides a wax or polish?
Any help is appreciated as going from washing the car every 3 days or so to not knowing what the hell to do is rather frustrating.
you can wash it, use a good quality car wash soap, no wash and wax stuff, just car wash.
Get yourself a nice soft wash mitt, wash from the top down, rinse often, dont drag the dirty mitt across the paint, wash the wheels last with a different mitt. Definitly dont lay the mitt on the floor.
you can wash all you want, its good to keep the paint clean.
Yea, dont use a pressure washer. I stripped the paint on my old 240 with mine (on purpose). I have had my car repainted twice. Both times I just kept the car very clean all the time by washing it with meguiars soft gel and a sponge, nothing too abrasive. Also for drying I never wanted to take the chance of scratching it so I just use the california water blade for most of the water, then a nice bath towell for hard to get places. They say you shouldnt wax it for 3 months, but my body shop told me not to do it for as long as possible. Something about the pores of the paint and the clearcoat not being able to breathe.
