This is my first Vette and I need the thoughts/advice of those who have successfully kept their cars in 'showroom or near-showroom' condition, even in adverse conditions. During my 5 yr tenure in auto sales, it was common to sell an exterior/interior protection package designed to keep the clearcoat free from damage from acid rain, sea salt, road salt, etc. in the Northeast. For the most part, the exterior product was a powerful/"teflon"-like wax. Now that I live in Florida, about 2 blocks from the ocean, the salty air/humidity is my primary concern. Other than a best-available wax, any suggestions? I imagine that most experienced owners do their own detailing. I would love to do the same but am concerned about creating swirls, hairline streaks, etc. Any ideas/approaches are greatfully accepted.
