My paint is dull and blotchy. How should I look after my exterior paintwork so the vehicle keeps its ‘as new’ look?

Wash your vehicle at least once a month and keep treating the panel work with a good brand of UV-resistant wax and polish. Keep the vehicle under cover and away from UV light and weather extremes as much as possible. Do not park your vehicle under trees that produce sap (this mostly applies to Australian native flora) or plants that attract a lot of birds. If the vehicle is exposed to salt water, salt air, mud or red dirt, wash and polish it as soon as you can, or at least give it a rinse down with clean, fresh water.
