It is finally time to pick up your truck from the body shop and admire its new paint job. It looks shiny and fresh and you want to keep it looking that way for as long as possible. There are certain steps that you can take in order to properly care for your truck to keep its paint job looking as new as possible.
A newly painted truck will require a good washing and waxing. However do not run out to the car wash on your way home from the body shop. Give the paint two weeks to cure before you wash and wax the truck.
After the two week waiting period, it is time to wash the truck. If you have a local car wash that you trust to wash your newly painted truck, than take it there. Otherwise wash your truck at home. You will need a five gallon bucket and a Ph balanced cleaner. Do not use dish soap on your truck. It will quickly dull the new paint. Wet the truck and apply the cleaner with a scratch fee washcloth. Start at the top of the truck and work down. Rinsing is very important. Even though it may look like your cleaner is not leaving any residue, a thorough rinse will get rid of anything left behind.
Once the truck has been thoroughly rinsed, it needs to be thoroughly dry. Use a scratch fee, lint free towel to completely dry the truck. Any water left behind can leave permanent water marks in the paint. The newly painted truck needs to be washed weekly in order to maintain its appearance.
It is important to apply wax to the new paint; however, you need to wait two months before you wax. Follow the instructions on a can of carnauba wax and apply to your truck. A newly painted truck needs to be waxed at least every two to six months. By following these steps, your new truck will stay looking beautiful for years to come.
