^find some bug remover and let it soak on. You may have to do several applications. Don't scrub hard as that will damage the paint. You definitely don't need a repaint because of bugs. After you remove the bugs see the sticky above for how to care for your car. You'll want to prep it well, removing any scratches or swirls plus all polish or wax. Then apply a sealant to help protect the paint, making it easier to wash and offering more shine and gloss.

WHere can you find these sealants?

I tried autozone, walmart and target this weekend and couldnt find anything but wax.

I have diamond graphite, so i wanted to do the sealant.

Also do i need a buffer? Or can i just do wax on wax off like the karate kid, (hell it should help my fighting skills to right?)

jon!

detailed image is a sponsor on here and you can find out more on their site.

Re buffer see my post above for full info. If all you are doing is applying a sealant yes you can do multiple coats by hand.

A lot of great info! I have a couple questions though

I really appreciate this write up, I just bought my G35 and I want to keep it looking good! I kept my DD and only will use the G35 on occasion, keeping it in the garage. I wanted to ask though, how do I clean the door jambs? And do you have a write up on keeping the interior? I'm sure it'd be a great help, I have 2 kids and want it to look like I don't have 2 kids lol Thanks in advance!
