no after market paint sealer will prevent anything. truth me told it just helps lazy people to get away with not waxing there ride with the correct stuff every few months.

cuz the paint on new cars seem thin or they painted it wrong(contamination)




will waxing prevent the typical rust forming underneath the paint too?

It is probably too late to start doing preventive paint maintenance on your 1985 Fiero.

Make sure you clay the paint first. It will remove fine contaminants including surface rust from rail dust and brake dust.
There are diferent products that you can use for different types of color vehicles and for how much you want to spend.
I personally use Menzerna Power lock sealent and then top it with colinite 845.
Collinite 845 is one of the longest lasting waxes on the market, it is available in you local automotive stores as well. Its said to last at least 6 months.

its more efficient with appropriate thickness only to achieve the tonal properties. today's paints are higher in pigment then they use to be requiring less build up (good thing for many reason)


nothing stops from under the paint. the only reason that happens is rust from the metal through and though or a small chip turns into a rust spot, paint rubbing will wear it off and on metal parts it will rust if you dont have it touched up or repainted.

^^ what he said if you really wanna do a good job for superior protection and cleaning before a good wax job. go for it, the more shit you put on the longer the paint will last (looking good)

I'm gonna do the barclay stuff because I know I have some crap embedded in the paint. So I don't know how deep it went.

Not sure if this link will work because I am posting from my phone. If not, just look up opti-coat 2.0. You have to make sure that you prep the surface properly including swirl removal because if you decide you want it done later, you just wasted all that time and product.

Oh yeah and a good way to tell how contaminated the surface of your paint is, after you wash the car put a plastic bag around your hand and swipe it along your paint. You will be able to feel everything.

That's because more than one person has warned him that we think you want to wear his skin as a suit. And you don't have beer at your house.
