      Question Rubbing and Waxing new car

      Hi!

      I have my 1 month old red Swift at the service center's body shop, thanks to that unknown WagonR driver who "managed" force me to scratch the road divider. :-(

      The right running board is being replaced and painted. Also, right side doors are being dent-fixed and and painted. They will be polishing the right side doors and running board after painting.

      The service advisor said he can give a full body polishing and waxing for Rs. 1,000/- more as they are anyway polishing the right side.

      Should I go for it? Will rubbing be causing a "thin layer of paint being removed"?

      Is it necessary on a relatively new paint?

      Thanks in advance for response.

      Thanks for the reply. So, I am thinking of asking him to do a waxing of whole body, without rubbing.

      Do you think it is a good idea?

      I am no expert. There are better informed people to guide you on the GH.

      Whenever painting done for a panel, they have sand down the contamination's and apply rubbing compound to remove the sanding marks. Apart from the repainted panes, you can tell them to apply just wax. No rubbing compound on the non repainted panels.
