How old should a car be before you wax it?

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering how old a car should be before it should be waxed.

Thanks

Brent

As soon as you pick it up and get it down professionally, spend upto $300 for a decent job and trust me you will never look back

DONT let the dealer detail it or apply that protective coat!

When done properly (like on a friends TE50) it comes up really well......

I use Dry Wash n Gaurd to protect my paint work, The advantage of this is no water is req to clean car, and scratches don't show as they do when you use a wax. DWnG is a polyma solution and put a bute shine on the paint wark, you can also use it on all windows and lights etc.

I live in Bundaberg QLD and have gotten it from my Supplier In town and he has a web sit at www.bundabergonline.com.au/waterless, My vehicle is featured on the site and if you look up DWnG on a search engine you should find the main distributor in Australia.

Cost is not to cheap as is about $60 for 600mL of DWnG

The problem with the protective coat is just that, if you can only see the amount of crap that sits on your car before its delivered from a build, the coat basically seals in everything.

I rather see a professional remove all imperfections, swirls, crap.. wax, polish and seal... and then youve got a top notch finish that can be maintained for a good twelve months with min of fuss!
