In the last issue we gave you some pro tips on how to get your Camaro’s paint shined up and swirl free, but all that hard work is wasted if you put those pesky scratches back into your car’s finish. The main culprit here is grit, and when it comes to washing and detailing your car, it’s critical that you keep anything abrasive away from your finish and use the correct tools during the process.

There are also quite a few products on the market to make the non-painted areas of your car look great as well. Plastic trim can be revitalized to look black again, aluminum polished to perfection, and tires given just the right amount of sheen. After all, a good lookin’ car involves more than just shiny paint.
