      Here's a crazy idea. What if I spray the whole car with WD40 after a good car wash. Will it prevent dust from sticking and prevent rust as well? It gives that nice shiny look after a good WD40 wipe

      Well there goes the paint. have fun repainting it.

      NO ONE SHALL SPRAY THEIR CAR WITH WD40 UNLESS YOU WANT TO REPAINT THE WHOLE VEHICLE CAUSE OF DAMAGE BY A OIL BASED PRODUCT.

      as long as you clean that area your fine. car wax is made to not harm the paint on a car. One product is different from the other

      dip your car with spray on Plasti dip at dipyourcar.com. That's what I'm going to do!

      Will plastidip the hood protect rock chips?

      I'm thinking maybe I should add one layer of those underbody rubbercoating/truck bedliner on top plastidip paint. Would the thicker layer protect the paint from rock chips?
