Parts that wear out and need replacement with time and use (such as tires, batteries, and suspension parts), are commonly subject to betterment charges when they are replaced with new parts during the repair process.

• DO wash the vehicle by hand with cool water and a very mild car wash solution using a soft cloth or sponge.

• DO always use clean fresh water.

• DO wash your vehicle in the shade.

DON’T use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface.

DON’T “dry wipe” your vehicle. Dry wiping can scratch the finish.

DON’T drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days.

DON’T park under trees and utility lines which are likely to attract birds. Bird droppings have a high acid content and will damage a freshly painted surface. Also, tree sap can mar or spot a freshly painted surface.

DON’T spill gasoline, oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid, or windshield solvent on the new finish.

DON’T scrape ice or snow from the newly painted surface.


DON’T wax or polish the vehicle. This will allow the finish to dry and harden completely.
