Flat Paint


Are there any products for flat paint? Since all the washes out there seem to have wax in them, will this get wax in the flat paint?

Are you talking about a single stage paint? No clear coat?

You won't wax it. You can just apply Quick Detailer. The wash "with wax" is nothing to worry about. That's not really adding wax.

Oh man that shouldnt be to hard, i thought it was your whole car lol.

Regular soap and a matte detailer should work fine. Check the link Perp posted.

Looks good man.

Should I also clay my matte paint. Before someone flames for the bump, it was bump or a new thread.

So, use the matte detailer, and don't clay, right?

yeah I don't see a problem using a fine clay, I might try something like iron-x first as the least abrasion possible would be best to stray from shining the flat paint

Ok, cool. I will make sure to test it out on the underside of my wing where it's hidden before I go and clay my entire hood.
Thanks
