Although much easier to maintain, coatings are not a hands-off/maintenance free alternative to properly caring for your vehicle. I am frequently asked about the best way to care for a coated vehicle. The absolute best wash option is always a hand wash using swirl-free techniques & pH neutral car shampoo. The next best option would be a "touchless" car wash, with periodic hand washes. Definitely avoid any automatic "touch" washes with brushes, cloth strips, or anything moving across the paint. These abrasive washes take the dirt/grit from the cars before you, & then drag it across your paint (creating swirls/scratches & reducing coating life). The majority of paint corrections I do are the result of poor wash practices, or damage from a car wash (including the "free" dealer wash). A coated vehicle does not benefit from any wax/polymer infused products, in fact they are a step backwards in protection. They can also leave a unwanted residue/buildup on the coating, diminishing hydrophobic properties. I provide all my customers with detailed maintenance instructions/tips, and maintenance product suggestions! I typically bring an assortment of Adams/SB3 maintenance products with me on every detail job. From shampoo to towels, everything I sell is the highest quality & 100% safe for your coating. My ultimate goal is to help you preserve your Furious Shine!
