Caring for your new custom paint job

Paint Care Instructions

Now that you’ve invested in your new paint, here are some helpful tips to keep it looking like the day you got it. Whether it is factory paint or a new custom job, it is much easier and faster than you think. And your paint can last as long as you are willing to take care of it.

First, never wipe your paint dry. The dust is like fine sandpaper. Always wash or use a good spray detailer. Then wipe it down with 100% cotton towels. Be sure to cut those nasty tags off the towels so they don’t scratch your paint.

Keeping a good wax job on it makes keeping it clean much easier. Wax such as Zymol (included in my paint care package) works great and comes off areas you did not mean to get it on like plastic pieces.

After each driving/riding season, you may want to do some machine polishing. This will get out any minor scratches that you may have acquired. Don’t be afraid to try to polish light scratches out yourself. Always start with the least aggressive polishing compound first. I also recommend doing a thorough wax job before winter storage and keeping it covered with a breathable storage cover. If you are not comfortable polishing it yourself, bring it back in to me or a local detailer to give it the shine it deserves.
