White body panel protection

The white paintwork on the SS seems like itís un lacquered, so whatís the best to protect it?

Does anyone use a wax or sealant on theirs?

Cheers.

Careful with wax or sealant on the White, it’s very possible could ruin the matte finish.

In addition to folks chiming in on this thread, lots of different opinions have been discussed on the Forum, and can hopefully be found using the Search function.

Personally, I’ve used this product below for coming-up on 3 years now, and the finish still look like new although it’s been through quite inclement weather.

I also use the Chemical Guys products designed for matte finishes and they work well.
