So the time has come. The dog has been painted for a few months now. As many of you have seen I had it painted semi-gloss (satin) black. The painter mixed black, clear, and flatner (uerethane) all into one, then shot the car twice. He said its the most hardcore toughest paint he's ever seen. My car really is near impossible to scratch. It does however show water spots and dust like you wouldnt belive. Think gloss black x 5. Its driving me nuts, so I think the time has come to put some protection on it. My garage no longer smells like fresh paint and its been a few months, so im assuming its done off-gasing. -Ive done a test spot of meguiars nt tech wax 2.0 and one of nu-polish. the megiuars is looks better as it has more shine. -I think im gonna go at it tomorrow, and I'll take a bunch of pics. Anyone have any thoughts/advice? --btw, unlike most of what youll find on the net waxing it hasnt resulted in a "gloss" finish. Judging by the test spots this is actually going to come out really nice...unless it becomes uneven.....i guess...maybe.
