Put a coating on it like opticoat

I've seen some guys put clear bra over it after having it professionally detailed to protect from swirls, and if there are any there itll generally hide them. Just make sure the guy doing the clear bra knows what he is doing.

Thought about that, but my goal is to keep this car as 'original' as possible. And, yes, the side graphic is also a sticker.

This would be my ideal solution, but I just can't afford it right now. I think eventually what I'll do is have it professionally detailed and then have the entire car wrapped, stickers and all..

Time for a reality check.

Unfortunately, there has been a long line of entitled pro detailers with chips on their shoulders that have come through TS.

They act like their detailing knowledge is a national secret or something and that we should be happy for any crumbs that fall from their table.

I remember when the detailing section of other forums was all DIY guys. Most of us used stuff like Meguiars and ZAINO and had a great time chatting about it and the various techniques we used. Barry and Sal used to join in and could not have been kinder.

Now these pro detailers act like they have the cure for cancer or something and they ain't sharing it.

It's really too bad.

My thoughts exactly.

Agreed, Dana. Hell, when someone asks me a question about my work I couldn't be happier to help them or at least point them in the right direction. And I'll never forget how helpful Dana was to me when I reached out to him a while back!

On other forums I'm on the vendors are quite helpful, I think a few of them may be on here. But detailersdomain has always been helpful in my experience and they stock a lot of good stuff.

Pete, I'm not sure what you need to keep the sticker in good shape, but give one of the vendors a call and maybe they can recommend/sell you the right stuff.

Besides charging way to much for their hose fittings, Phil at detailersdomain.com has always treated me well too.

Good point Pinned.

Dana is the MAN! Hope it turns out well PA. Also, does that mean exhaust is out of the picture?
