Re: Paint Protection
Well, my experience with paint protection was crap. I paid for it, sort of. And they made all the guarantees (but no warranty) but mine ended up getting half resprayed, so it turned out to be a waste anyway. I heard (from Ford) that all dealers just hire some company (whatever one they choose) to come and slap the stuff on - no better than turtle wax etc....and you could do it yourself.
They told some chic that it would protect her car against bird shit, and a few months later, she came in with all these marks on the paint from bird shit, and it had to be resprayed - they did it to shut her up in the end.... I was told none of the stuff they use does this, it is just wax/polish.
And they got mine all over the black plastic areas of the car, ie around the mirrors, and now there is all this white stuff I cant get off....
However, you may have had some kind of different protection, l like an actual protective coat like Armaglaze, where you get that kind of warranty for years. Either way, you should be able to wax it if you want.
The Meguiars Soft Wash Gel is good, as mentioned above - I use that - pretty good cleaner. And I use other Meguiars stuff too, like the Quick Detailer - that works well if the car is dry and cool. Also the Meguiars chamois is the best one I have ever used, for those who are interested!
If you have any questions, just ask the person that sold it to you. However, the Ford chic that sold it to me told me to only wash the car in Baby Shampoo - what a crock! I asked some non Ford paint guys and they said NEVER do that!
I hope the warranty you got is from Ford and the manufacturer of the stuff as well!!!!
