Came across some news today that may make the automotive detailing industry, and the car wash industry lose some sleep. It turns out that paint manufactures are improving upon automotive paint to the point where it doesn’t require cleaning nearly as often as today’s paint jobs.
It appears to be pretty remarkable stuff. In the photo above, you can clearly see how clean the right side of the vehicle is in comparison to the left. Nissan is currently testing the stuff. It looks like it is either going to be available as a Dealer added option, or an option applied by a 3rd party. Lifespan is said to be about a year.
Keep an eye out for it probably with the next 18 months.
