    New Car

    Iím posting this here because I really like WG products and have had a lot of great results from the DGPS. I have a new Toyota Tacoma magnetic grey color and am planning on sealing it with DGPS and top coating with Fuzion wax. Thoughts? Also, how long do I need to wait to do anything? It was manufactured about 3 weeks ago. Iíve heard everything from 1 month to 6 months to wait before you do anything to a new car. Finally, any product recommendations for rims?

    Do you have a Random Orbital Polisher?

    Just asking before recommending anything.

    OK.

    WG Total Swirl Remover and or Uber Compound.

    WG Finishing Glaze.

    Get some Clay, clay the car before starting to work on the paint.

    Then your DGPS and FUZION.

    it's a new car, it will need some work.



    This is my 2005 Dodge Ram, done last week.

    WG TSR then Finishing Glaze and DGPS.

    After the dealership gets done it with there are usually all kinds of rotary buffer marks from when they wax it then just the time you owned it etc. there will be swirls and water spots in the paint.

    Just normal really.

    Yeah, I figured if they touched it, it’d be a bad job. Paint doesn’t look too bad but I haven’t had a chance to really inspect it too much yet. I just picked it up.
    Your truck looks great!

    Let us know once you look at it on the direct sun, it will show everything, and it's dark grey?

    Yeah they normally use a rotary buffer with wool pads and just slap on the wax and use another one to buff it off. Just whatever is fastest and easiest to get them out the door. And that's after they do a whatever quick wash using who knows what.

    I am thinking you won't have to be too aggressive with it.

    Likely just WG TSM with a light cutting pad or polishing pad maybe, but that's without even seeing it so I could be wrong.

    Then follow up with WG Finishing Glaze and a polishing pad.

    Then the DGPS and Fuzion.


    Thanks for the comment.
