    My new car. This is where it will be parked, however a car cover is forthcoming. I work at a car dealership (not a detailer).. and so far (ive had the car a week), I have given it a mitt wash every day to get rid of the crap that falls from the trees beside my house. Should I be washing less... or more? It is so easy for me to wash it when I leave work, I usually end up doing it. Should I just rinse it?

    Product list:

    QEW wash
    claymagic.com Clay Bar
    DACP
    SFP (dacp and sfp also used for friends cars I will probably end up doing)
    Vanilla Moose
    EX-P sealant
    S100 or NXT
    clearkote quikshine QD
    eagle 20/20
    pakshak MF towels and applicators (mf and non mf)

    This kinda seems like overkill for a silver car, but I just want to make sure I keep the paint the way it is now for the 4 year lease. I will also probably do assorted friends cars in my spare time.

    I was thinking:

    Every day or 2: Quick wash at work

    Every weekend: QEW + clay if needed + vanilla moose + ex-p + NXT

    You only need to wax about every 3 months and VM every 6. Every week is way overkill.

    Once your paint is properly prepped, I'd wash/QD it weekly, and VM/EX-P every couple of months. I wouldn't put NXT over EX-P.
