After Respray

Hi, my white bmw gt is going in for a respray soon due to previous owner. Wanted to know what could I use to protect the new paint work ...

The bodyshop said after dried, he will be polishing it with Meguiar's 205.

Would Gtechniq exo or c1 be the best protection without being way to expensive or would a different brand be better?

Thanks

Ask the bodyshop, how long you should wait before you can seal the paint. I had to wait 6 weeks before i could wax my freshly painted car. The paint has to gas. It maybe dry but it still needs to vent.

Can I ask if the same applies to a spoiler being fitted? It's been sprayed a day ago and will be fitted tomorrow. When will I be able to put some Col. 845 on it?

So I can't touch the spoiler at all? What about when I'm cleaning the car? Is it OK to clean with shampoo, as long as I don't use any other product on it?

(Sorry OP for butting in )

If the paint has been baked in an oven, then it is cured and you can wax or seal it right away.

If its the main body of the car, and/or hasn't been in the oven then you will have to wait 4 weeks or so.

You can shampoo it and polish it if you need to, but just hang fire with the sealant.

I've got Polish Angel Master Sealant on mine at the moment, been on since last July and holding up really well in terms of protection and beading.
Topped up once a month (if that) with Polish Angel Rapidwaxx.

You'll only need a small bottle of Master Sealant (I bought a 200ml bottle and there's well over half a bottle left and I've done 2 coats on 2 cars with it)

C1 and EXO are great coatings, really need to be applied indoors at correct temperatures and humidity to get best results.

I'll have to find out then. It's been done by the main SEAT dealer but I've no idea if it's been oven baked or not. I suppose I'm best asking them...
