It's time to put my first coat of wax on the Lightning. I did not opt for the $200 paint sealant option at the dealership. Any recommendations on a paint sealant or brand of wax I should use? I want to start this off right.
Its good you didnt fall for thge dealer paint sealent, its cheap wax that washes off after one car wash(used to work at a dealer). I would recomend Adams polishes, thats what i use on my lightning. I have tried just about everything else and I am happier with the adams results
Thanks. The Zaino Brothers polish sounds great. I'll order some. I must admit I am a little nervous about trying the clay bar. Doesn't it leave tiny scrathes from dragging the contaminants across the paint?
No it wont, when using the claybar you also use a lubricant like a quick detail type of spray, so it picks up the crud and will not scratch the paint....assuming its not big chunks of dirt!
wash the truck real good, then after it dries "Feel" the surface
then claybar a small section, and feel the difference! its amazing stuff! After you do a section, work the clay (knead it) so a fresh spot is used for the next section.
claybar also works well for removing paint overspray!
