Just have Orieley's and Advanced. Will probably pick up some NXT because that is what everyone seems to be suggesting.

Edit: Is that the same stuff as the Tech Yellow/#26 wax?

Anyone got tips on washing/care/upkeep for a satin black paint? Technically it's PPG DP primer If it matters.

you're only asking for trouble washing it. primer is porous.

I'm aware of this, really just looking more for care and upkeep ideas.

Autoglym HD if you're lucky. Walmart might still have a box or two sitting on the shelf marked down significantly if you want to give that a shot.

Because airbags.

I kinda wanted to finish all the bodywork proper, then get it sprayed gloss black towards next fall, I didn't have the money or time this year but it was in two colors with a primer *** when i got it so something had to be done, we scuffed it up real good, degreased and tacked and just shot the whole thing. Only cost was materials which came out being probably what rattlecans would have costed.

This sort of falls under this thread.. but I recently got my hood and fenders painted. The body shop just wet sanded everything and will buff it when its all bolted back on the car(being that its alot easier for them.) Not a big deal since Im waiting for my bumper and some other plastics to get painted too.

I recently noticed this imperfection on my hood. It almost looks like something got on it and ate through the clear coat or something. Or im not sure if its just from the wetsanding.







I know its really hard to tell from a picture but will this blend when the body shop buffs the car?

That looks like a paint imperfection, not something that comes from wetsanding. I'd take it back to the body shop

Hopefully they can do something when I take the car there to have it buffed and finished.

It's hard to tell from just pictures, but if they can't buff it out I'd make them fix it.
