LOL.....its not that bad...just get yourself a claybar...you'll be needing it! i honestly dont have trouble with my paint. I use meguilars gold class wax on a regular basis and i dont notice and surface scratches that often. when i do i use meguilars cleaner wax first then the gold class and it takes them out. if you have a really stuborn spot you can use rubbing compound to buff it out.
*edit* you should post this or maybe a moderator could move to car care. probably get more responses and more accurate info.
Let's just say I love black on cars but this is the first and will be the LAST black car that I own. Just be very cautious of how and what you wash your car with and try not to use a circular pattern while polishing and waxing to avoid swirl marks. Other than that advice... good luck.:biggrin:
Hell? Nahhhh...I love washing and waxxing my car, it's therapy I swear.
I wash my black car every 2-3 days, and wax once or twice a month. A clay bar is your best friend - GREAT for taking off the random things in your paint. The key to a clean black car is keeping up on your wax maintenance!
Keep up with the wax and your paint will be like mine...36,000 miles and goin strong
heh, you can come wash mine for 'therapy' too then Kel :biggrin:
I mean... im really good at keeping it clean, infact i lie - because my car is rarely dirty... even if i get caught out in the rain, i actually give it a quick wash INSIDE my garage :tongue:
but still, its just the principle that i have to be a hardcore nut about cleaning it to keep it looking awesome, where as my last car was red, and i could drive it though mud almost, and it would still look clean :tongue: now, i bust out the meguires quick-wipes if i drive through a puddle...
