    I have a `69 Camaro. The paint is in pretty poor shape. I washed it and did a test wax on the roof of the car. This just led to alot of blue paint on my rag. So I stoped. I need to know what steps I need to do to protect and shine this thing up a bit till I get it repainted.

    I read the stickies. I am just unsure of the steps I need to go through to get it ready to wax.


    Thanks

    DACP would be the least abrasive starting point I would recommend. You are going to have to work small areas and refold the towel every time (you will see how dead paint will clog it up) and you will probably have to go over the whole vehicle twice, followed by SFP. If you have some Vanilla Moose, that would be a good final glaze and also use terry cloth towels with it as well. Top with a paste wax. Liquid waxes have solvent carriers that tend to streak on single stage paint that was allowed to oxidize. S100 or Meguiars #16 Pro Paste Wax are both good products.
