    How do I prepare a new car for Crystal Serum Light ?

    I'm picking up a car next week and would like suggestions for new car CS Light preparation steps. We live in the high desert of central Oregon.

    Thanks

    "To apply CSL your vehicle must be indoors and it must remain indoors for at least 12 hours after application

    •Ambient conditions must be above 3 degrees C and below 25 C
    •Wash and then decontaminate your vehicle’s paintwork with Gtechniq W5 Citrus All Purpose Cleaner and W6 Iron and General Fallout Remover. If required, clay your paintwork to remove other bonded contaminants
    •If needed, polish your paintwork, either by machine or by hand, to remove any imperfections
    •Spray Gtechniq Panel Wipe onto a Gtechniq MF1 ZeroR Microfibre Buff Cloth
    •With your panel fully cooled after polishing, taking care to avoid any paint protection film or other types of vinyl film, buff away all polish residues. This process ensures you will get the maximum number of chemical bonds between the coating and your vehicle’s paintwork"

    Pretty much as mentioned by itsgn.

    You can use other products to decontaminate, polish and prep wipe other than GTechniq.

    If this is your personal car then I would consider adding Exo as it just adds that extra hydrophobic water behavior compared to what CSL offers.
