To protect the paint surfaces, please wash your vehicle as soon as you can.

● after a rainfall to prevent possible damage from acid rain.

● after driving on coastal roads.

● when contaminants such as soot, bird droppings, tree sap, metal particles or bugs get on the paint surface.

● when dust or mud builds up on the surface.

Whenever possible, store or park your vehicle inside a garage or in a covered area.

When it is necessary to park outside, park in a shady area or protect the vehicle with a body cover.

Be careful not to scratch the paint surface when putting on or removing the body cover.
