How to repel dust?
« on: 20 May 2008, 20:33 »
So I paint cleaned, polished and waxed my car the other day. Looks the shiz lol! But after a day or two it's covered in dust, what's the best way to make the dust stay away?

keep it garaged and never drive it lol

i normally give the car a quick going over with some quik detailer and a microfibre cloth to bring back the shine.

don't think there is a sure fire way of repelling dust  :sad:

I keep a bottle of quick detailer and a microfibre cloth in the car. I guess that is the only way to do it then lol!

Whilst I'm here, when I washed the car, I use a drying towel for the drying process. Is that okay to use if there's wax on it?

Cool thank you. Last thing lol! I'm not sure how much wax you're meant to apply, I only put a thin layer on over the car, leave it for 20mins then rub off...?

sounds about right - what wax you using? i'm using Collinite 915 and apply in very thin layers - leave about 15 minutes then buff off; applied two coats on the weekend and looks superb  :cool:

this picture is with one coat

Ahh that's cool, just wanted to make sure I was doing it right. Is it ok to apply two coats?

yes but leave a few hours between the two - apply anymore and you're wasting your time IMO as you can end up removing the previous layer
