Spring looks to be here and yesterday I took Big Red for a bath to get the grit and grime off of her. When I got home I hit her with some quick detail to see just how much crap was embedded in the paint. Needless to say she needs a full claybar session as the amount of crap is horrific.
Pic's will come later but what really pissed me off is the amount of deep scratches and rock chips the front bumper has.
Being as only know the basics in paint, clearcoat and wax I'm hoping my brothers here can give me a hand. I will be touching up the chips with OEM touch up paint, but what is best to seal it with? A good coat of wax? How can I get my shine on again?

Lol, Warlock, somehow I just don't think that'll be happening.

As for the front end, make sure it's good and clean, and I mean q-tip the holes with rubbing alcohol before applying the new paint. Then touch up the paint with the brush-on, not the paint pen style. After that's done, give it a few days to cure properly, then use a light polishing compound to take the ridges off of the repairs and follow this up with a good sealer then wax. After all that, spare yourself this headache every year and pay the $$ for the clear 3M wrap.
