Default Post Painting Care

Hey guys, after being inspired by all of you guys painting your own carts, I decided to do it myself. Now that I have painted it and have started re-assembling the cart, what do I need to do to take care of the new paint job? Specifically, how long before it can be washed, waxed, etc. ? Any type of soap to avoid etc.?

Thanks,

Rich

Did you clear it or single stage the paint? I like to wait about 2weeks before I color sand the car or paint job, then buff it out with 3m perfect-it 3000, it has been a good product for me. For the washing part, I use a mild soap and let it dry, then put a good wax of your choice for a nice armor on your cart. I hope this helps.

Any automotive product will work for washing/waxing your new paint. If you are happy with the shine, keep up with it like you would on your favorite car. Keeping the cart out of the sun will help too, but that isn't fun so use a quality wax that has some type of UV protection.

Thanks for the response, I did the base coat and then clear on the cart. I am attaching pictures below, it turned out pretty good and I learned a lot in the process.
