General cleaning query
I bought a black 159 a few months back that has been some what neglegted on the bodywork front
- The bonnet is full of stone chips and on the back doors at the wheel arch, the paint is almost white ... not to montion the odd scratch
The car was bought as a daily driver, so this doesn't overly bother me and is low priority to get fixed, however, I have spent some time getting the body work back to as good a state as I can given the above issues
The car got de-tarred, clay bar'd, polished with a paint restorer polish, a general srp polish and waxed, so she's looking as good as she car
Having done all this though, it got me thinking about general weekly and monthly washes and how to do this best
I see no need to clay the car, or polish the car again any time soon, as long as I keep some protection on it ... and on that basis, what should that protection be?
The clay bar is great for removing contaminents on the paint and this is a good thing ... but surely after a wax, these same contaminents get trapped in the wax, so would we not want these removed before we put on any new coating
That would result in a clar almost every wash, but thats a lot of work
Assuming this is not an issue and we look to re-appy wax every month, is it OK just to apply further wax on top of whatever uneven wax coating is left on the car from the previous waxing?
