Wash it properly, use an SI02 sealant on top of it.

You will be surprised how easy your car will be to clean with the coating on the paint.

If you don't want to use a wipe on/wipe off SI02 product for your "sacrificial" layer on top of your coating, you can just use a soap infused with SI02 as well.

Adams Wash & Coat is very easy to use and leaves a layer of protection that lasted 9 weeks on my un-garaged daily driver.

After you wash the car, before you dry it, do 1 last rinse, a pooling rinse, this will remove 90% or more of the water on your car, leaving you very little to dry. It only takes a couple minutes, and the key to it's effectiveness is using a slow stream of water that doesn't splash as you go across the car.

Apply a booster product that is formulated to work with coatings.
