Post-Collision Repair: How to Care for New Automotive Paintcollision repair

After receiving auto body repair, your instinct may be to protect the new paint job by immediately getting your car washed or waxed. However, the paint actually needs two weeks to cure. Once the two weeks have passed, you should take your vehicle to your trusted, local car wash. You can also complete the job yourself with a pH balanced cleaner. Don’t use dish soap and other diluted cleaners as they may dull your paint over time.

After you’ve thoroughly rinsed your car or truck, it’s time to try it with a scratch-free, lint-free towel. Finally, repeat this process once a week to keep the new paint in top condition.
