Care and feeding of dp90?

Did a search, and about all I found were several threads about why I shouldn't have used dp90 to paint the car black... but having done so, I'm wondering if there are any preferred methods for taking care of this finish; should I just wash it on occasion, or is there any sort of polish/wax type products that would actually be benficial? I've already noticed a couple spots that look like stains, how can I remove those? Hopefully this hasn't been covered before, or if it has, someone can direct me to the thread. I guess at least now the car if primered and ready for another coat if I decide that the current black is as bad as some of those threads seem to indicate...
Thanks!

If I understand this right you used DP90 as a flat black paint?
If thats the case I would not worry about it.
The DP's have been degraded to the point now that they will not stick to bare metal but this should not be a concern in your case.
(if it starts coming off, its just less stripping you have to do.)
Epoxy exposed to UV's will start chalking maybe 6 months maybe 2 years. Chalking is nothing more than the top layer dieing and through washing the dead layer will fall off exposing the better layer underneath. Here again you can just scuff and recoat or its less product to sand off if and when you redo the car.
Wax with a uv in it would help but you may be killing the finish look that you now have or wanted, try a small lower spot to see.

Their latest tech sheet says must use an acid etch first. If your using it do check with jobber and make sure you have a current one. Better safe than sorry.
