    New Car Care Questions

    I just brought home a brand new car a few days ago and from the beading it's obvious that the dealership applied something on the paint.

    So right now, I would like to focus on the trim, glass, headlights, wheels, UNPAINTED plastic front bumper and mirrors before they fade, yellow and get water spot etching.

    This South Florida sun and rain is brutal in the summer and did I mention the damn love bugs.

    I am looking for something that's quick and easy due to the weather and lack of time. I was thinking D156, 845 and BFTTTS on the bumper, mirrors, and trim.

    Is D156 and 845 safe to use on the UNPAINTED mirrors and bumper? How should I prep the surfaces I mentioned?

    Also, McKee's Hydro looks like it could be another choice...looks so simple and too good to be true.

    What would you guys recommend with all the choices we have today?

    Thanks.

    Normally you don’t put wax on plastic trim - even if it won’t stain it’s still not a good practice.

    Thanks Mike for the editing and tip. So do not use D156 or 845 on the any unpainted plastic / trim...correct?
