How to keep AW stay white ([email protected]etailersdomain)

Hi Phil,

I need some help on how to keep my AW to stay white. It turns a little yellow very fast since I live in a very polluted country. I wash the car regularly after used.

Any recommendation and what products to use? I am willing to give it a try and purchase it from you. Please let me know

thanks

I am no Phil

but, it all depends on your expectation as far as how good you want to make it looks.
I'll do the usual, wash, clay, pre-wax clean, seal/wax. Most of the time the car would look very nice by then.
If not enough then you'll need to get polisher but check with Phil if he can get you anything that 220V/50Hz else you'll need step-down converter. (not sure if Flex with micro controller is OK cause it expect 60Hz while Asia is 50Hz even if you can step the volatge down to 110v w/ converter).

Just be careful this detailing thing is addictive.

I am also no Phil but I always use a glaze then sealant on AW, seem's to add more depth and gloss than just wax. Hope this helps
