SCRATCHES

Does anyone have problems with the paint scratching too easy. I have scratches all over my car and it is brand new!

1. You have Black and Black shows scratches way more than any other paint job...
2. Chevy's paint on this car is crap just wait until you start getting the quarter panel gill chips everyone, that doesn't 3M, eventually gets.
3. Yes I find it a huge problem.

With a black car, you have to be very careful.

What you use to wash your car can scratch the paint, what you use to dry it can scratch the paint.

I always wash mine indoors with a microfiber wash mitt and 2 soap buckets. I hose it down like nobody's business, get all the big dirty spots off then I wash the very dirty areas with one soap bucket. Go inside and thoroughly clean my wash mitt, then wash the whole car with the other soap bucket. I use clean/ultra soft bathroom towels to dry it off and then go over the spots I missed with a microfiber cloth.

It seems like a lot of work but i get tons of compliments on how nice my paint is on my black car. To this day it barely has scratches on it and looks wicked even when its not even waxed.

A black car is a art when it comes to washing and detailing.

I agree with everyone. Black sucks for scratches, gm has shitty paint and at 29 I learned that I have no idea how to properly wash a car......
