Modern car finishes offer a lot more protection with a lot less maintenance. 
Single coat finishes are now much more durable, and most new factory finishes
have a tough clearcoat which brings out the brilliance of the color while protecting
it against sun, water, wind and dirt.

DuPont refinishing systems offer this same outstanding performance, and with
a little care, your new DuPont finish will reward you with many years of
"eye-catching" beauty.

  • Park in a garage or under a roof whenever possible.

  • Avoid parking under trees, as sap and bird droppings may damage the
    finish.  Remove these substances as soon as possible by rinsing with water
    (use a mild soap if necessary).

  • Wash the vehicle frequently, preferably by hand.  Avoid car washes
    with hard brushes.  During the first 30 days, when the paint is especially
    fresh, clean the car with a water rinse only.  For heavy soils, use a mild
    liquid soap or specially designed car wash.  In winter, wash your car with
    warm water; in summer, wash in the shade with cold water.
