    So i get my 316 out of having a respray on thursday.

    Is there anything i should or shouldnt do, interms of washing.

    Im gonna let it settle for a week first, but in terms of gettin the clay out and starting to detail, should i wait say a couple of months or do it straight away???
    Im guessing its down to the integrity of the paintwork and wether the job done is a good one? As to wether i detail it or not?


    thanks for any help. Joe

    How do Joe,

    Generally speaking, after a paint job you should leave it 2-3 months to let the paint cure/harden. There are lots of chemicals that need to realise from the paint over this time. Some say to leave it even longer if you can. This also depends on whether the paint has been baked or not. If not it will take longer.

    In this time frame the lacquer (presume its been lacquered?) will be very soft and will mar easily. For the first few months use a wax with more natural ingredients like dodo juice supernatural (with a foam or microfibre applicator)... rather than a solvent based wax. Or anything solvent for that matter, sealants glazes etc. Top this up once a month or as you see fit.

    Once this time period is up and you want to get cracking, use a very fine clay as there will be contaminates in the paint. Once clayed, use the least abrasive polish possible, as it will still be very soft relatively speaking. (compared to old German paint). You might find a finishing polish works to de-swirl.

    After this, i would still recommend just using the same natural wax so you can be sure all the chemicals can realise.

    Hard to give any more accurate advise as its down to how its painted... If you have any more questions.. just pm me.

    Out of interest how much did it cost and why arent you happy with it?
    Before you criticise a man walk a mile in his shoes, after that who cares? your a mile away and you have his shoes.
