    Yes, I know a good product to protect your car from the hot sun. It's called a garage or carport and it does wonders protecting your paint from the burning sun. It even helps to preserve your dashboard(just kidding of course.... or perhaps not.... ) I just sold a 1996 corvette (I have a 2015 as well) and the paint and interior were in immaculate shape... I did replace the seat upholstery, but I think that had more to do with a big butt than the sun...

    I have been using Pinnacle Natural Brilliance for some time now. It spreads like warm butter and you wipe it off immediately. No residue, or buffing. says you a lot of time. Very deep wet look.

    I live in Louisiana-similar weather. I have had spectacular results with Zaino-takes all day but worth it. Can't wait to get it on my new Vette!

    I've used Zaino on my Vipers, Camaro ZL575, 350Z, my Charger SRT8 Superbee, and now on my C7. IMO, it is the best product out there. As mentioned previously, it takes some time but the results are very well worth it.

    Take all day? no thanks, you just dont have to do that anymore, if you like zaino, use their z-cs wipe on walk away.The gloss in the polish, not the last step product (LSP)

    I only use Garage One products (Speed Wax, Leather Conditioner, Tire Gel, etc. ) made right here in Tampa, Fl.
    I have A LRG M7 NPP coupe and win Best - In - Class alot.
    The Speed Wax can be applied to a hot (clean of course) car in direct sunlight. It doesn't leave a white chalk around seams.
    I can wax the car in about 40 minutes.

    Yes. Lime Rock Green was only available in 2014 then discontinued. Only 4% were produced in this color (probably ) making it the rarest color car. Very heavy metallic making it sparkle in the sun. Big hit at car shows.
