Your car’s surface is under constant attack from mud, dust, dirty rain, water spots, unsightly brake dust and grime. Snow, ice, salted roads, tree gum and bird droppings add to the damage. Scratches, chips, and stains start to spread across your car’s exterior and the paint begins to dull & fade from the sun. Automatic car washes scratch and mar your paint, while the chemicals used are terrible for the surface. Wax adds a good level of shine and gloss, and a small amount of protection, but only lasts a few months at best.
