IMO; the clay did not cause those hairline scratchesjamesmyboy said:It looked super from the right angle, but from the wrong angle, there were horrible hairline scratches. I thought I followed the directions properly, but after that, I'll never do clay again!
100% correct.RedhotGTO said:Yes, you should Clay a new car.
There are rail shavings in the paint from the ride your car took to get to you. Plus, the wash monkeys, that washed & dried your car while it sat on the lot, used the same towel for all the cars they dried. You need to get those impurities out of the paint. Plus you need to use a slight polish to remove the fine scratches they put in your new paint, and then you need to protect it with a wax and/or sealant.
No Reason to feel guilty, you're paint will forgive you. You are in no way doing a dis-service to your paint by not waxing right away, as GM uses a good hard clear coat, and you will more than likely have great protection through the winter on factory paint only. Just get the Traverse a good Spa day in the Spring. ;D :happy:staciesbaby said:thanks, weasel, now i feel guilty
Absolutely correct. My dealer indicated that they had waxed my car. When I asked them how, they said they hydroshined it. Pressed further, it's something they add to the water, aka car wash 'polish'.GXPWeasel said:100% correct.
The wax a dealerhship uses is just like the car wash.
