Matte Grey 1969 Camaro

Hi there,

I have a 1969 Camaro with a fresh matte grey paint job, it doesn’t have a matte lacquer, what’s best for caring for this? I need products best for making it easier to clean and keep dirt and water marks off! Currently I’m using “Autoglym - Fast Glass” with micro fibre clothes, that works well for cleaning but not for protection.

Thanks in advance,

Kieran

There are some manufacturers who make a matte finish wax, Swissvax is one i think but a quick call to any of the suppliers who advertise on this site will give you the answers you want

Just up my street your car

Fast glass is great for getting them unwanted finger prints off but offers no protection.

You can get a ceramic coating applied but that won't stop it from getting swirls and other particles attaching themselves to the surface or the other route you could go down is get the full car or partly done with stealth self healing PPF film by LLUMAR. This will still give your matt effect but also protect the car for up to 5-10 years but it is expensive but if you keep the car it will only benefit it's value in the future

Hello fellow yank owner.

My advice, get it coated with a coating that wont gloss up the finish. Then maintain easily with ONR (optimum no rinse)
It will be quicker, easier, eliminate water spotting and the less excessive water you use around a classic the better
