If it is a 90 mph per hour wind and you drive your car at 90mph downwind, if you stick your head outside would you feel the wind?

how long ago did you have it done?

this article on pistonheads provides good advice...

if i were you... I would just wash using the two bucket method and a waffle weave on a very regular basis until your 90 days are up....

then (imo - as everyone will tell you different) a bit of dodo juice lime prime, sealant and then wax... happy days  :cool:

guy is bang on with that advise dude,you should only really be washing it at the moment as your paint will still be soft and needs time to harden,once the paint is hard i would invest in some top notch waxes and sealents for ultra protection and shine, chemical guys have got some awsome glazes and sealents and collinite 845 insulator wax or poorboys nattys blue paiste wax is really good for dark coloured cars or as guy said......DODO JUICE,this stuff smells good enough to eat :grin: and is an easy wax to apply and remove, the deep glossy shine is to die for.
