Re: Paint protection is it worth getting it..

+1 with adamt

I try to wash every week (the car that is, I shower daily) and wax every 3 months. Meguairs NXT is what I'm currently using, but might try Mothers or Autoglym next.

A mate has applied nanolex to his and his wife's cars. Jury is still out as they were both new cars anyway and they are only 5 months old.

Bird strikes are what I've got a problem with at the moment as our area is full of lorikeets in the morning and mynahs all day. The GC has two small etch marks on the roof because I didnt spot and remove the bird poo nearly immediately. Its as though the birds wait for the GC to be brought out and then they unleash hell on it. I doubt any type of paint protection can stop them ... except maybe a big GC condom that can be peeled off and thrown away.

Re: Paint protection is it worth getting it..

i'm thinking about getting the 3m Paint protector, it's like that protective skin that you put on your iphone or something ... it would cost me roughly 1100$ to have my bumper mirrors and hood ... I would think it's a good idea since that kind of material does a good job on the phone... and well as for my jeep it would be impact mostly right instead of scratches ... what do you guy's think?

Re: Paint protection is it worth getting it..

I have it installed on our Golf.
We have had several stones hit the bonnet, and some of these have pierced the 3M material.
You have to ask yourself, which is cheaper? Repaint or 3M.

Applied mothers wax on the vehicle. Got some wax on the plastic bit like the wheel arch how do I get it off. Also how long are you supposed to leave the wax on the car before wiping it off.

Re: Paint protection is it worth getting it..

To remove wax from plastic try windex and a toothbrush.
Another solution is to use peanutbutter and a toothbrush. And, NO, you do not brush your teeth with the peanut butter.

For other solutions type "Remove car wax from plastic" into a Google search.
Follow the recommended time on the Mother's bottle. Usually, it is wait until the wax hazes.
