Top ten paint care tips

If you already have new windshield and a show winnng paint job and it is not especially chip resistant:

1.) Avoid high speed highway or heavy freeway traffic.
2.) When approaching an oncoming vehicle, brake or slow down and steer to the right as far as possible.
3.) Drive the vehcle only on Sunday mornings.
4.) Never tailgate.
5.) never drive in the "suicide lane" of a multi-lane freeway. (inside lane)
6.) Remove your belt, watch and rings when washing or working on the the car. Use fender covers. (I use furniture moving pads)
7.) Avoid truck routes.
8.) Avoid highway construction areas.
9.) Plan the route yu will take
10.) Check the weather radar and forecast to avoid rain showers along your route and at your destination. (for body off restorations)
