There are do’s and dont’s.
Preserving a finish requires different approach than restoring one.
The mentality of a person focused on preservation is quite the opposite of one who’s focus is to restore.
Preservationist understand the necessity of restoration products and their place.
They won’t care one way or the other that you wax your car, They understand some people need wax, Their paint is so bruised from past waxing, polishing and claying, it needs wax like a old woman needs makeup.
There is an understanding Preservationist have that makes it easy to determine when a product is designed to restore a finish and when one is designed to preserve one.
For example water will help preserve a finish polish will help restore a finish.
On the other hand people who use restoration products on everything don’t seem to have a clue.
They do not understand the concept of preserving the cars finish, They want to “fix it”, make it better.
The internet is a virtual frontier, where everything is accessible and the” cavemen auto detailers” run wild. For a short time the caveman dominated the Internet detail forums. Banned together in their natural quest for survival, their sells tactic is to attack and overwhelm as a group.
Cavemen are physical individuals and prefer doing than learning. Leaning new things is a challenge for them, so once they learn a trick they stick with it. In this case the trick was “How to wax a car”. Allied with sponsors from wax companies who stood to gain new business, the cavemen viewed the sponsorship as an endorsement and immediately proclaimed themselves to be “Automotive Detail Experts”.

We have since removed all links to autopia as a precautionary safety measure for our members and guests.
Autopia has long been suspected of using “malware” and has engaged in falsely accusing other sites of doing the same. Read more »
Unlike videos of cars taken immediately after they have been waxed, This VaporWax video was made well over a month after the paint on this FX35 has been conditioned with VaporWax acrylic paint conditioner
Contrary to popular rhetoric, buffing an organic wax onto new automotive acrylic paint will not preserve the color or shine of your paint.
In fact it is the beginning of the end of your factory shine.
Sadly enough misinformed people continue to pass on bad advice.
1. They say waxing won’t hurt your cars paint.
2. They will tell you that wax and polish are the same thing.
3. They will tell you: Here is what I do………( ultimately claying, abrasive polishing and waxing are involved )
4. These people are stuck in the past They haven’t a clue as to what they are talking about and none of their advice serves to preserve your paint.
Some people just don’t realize that things change, if they didn’t we would still have bias ply tires on our cars, but someone realized that radial tires were better. Read more »
Sandpaper wet or dry is the kiss of death for acrylic / plastic headlights.
You cannot restore something by grinding it away, what works for one problem does not work for all.
Unless some shade tree mechanic or professional caveman has previously used abrasives or sandpaper cleaners on your headlight lens, it can be restored to like new in seconds with an acrylic lens deoxidizer.
Classic caveman statement:
It’s ok to sand your headlight because the UV layer is already damaged.
FACT: A damaged UV layer is better than no UV layer at all.
The normal wear on an exposed headlight will not create the clouding and damage that an abrasive cleaning will do. The chips and scratches you get from normal driving is not enough to cloud your lens and effect light projection. Read more »
