Not much.... but im sure the condition of the clear cloat is probably shaky. Just wash it with w/e car wash you use, claybar the car, wash agian, and then wax. I wouldnt worry too much. Now if you have been taking your car to the car wash and or not washing properly your clearcoat is also going to have swirls and such in it. Time to polish it then also.

i just did my first clay recently then i used a few other products as well. i have light surface mars but it is hard to tell. I also park outside and drive on salty winter roads. Just clay once or twice a year and wax also and you should be better than most. But if you want some of the professional looks like on here you will have to step up your game a bit

thanks guys! You know its funny I just had both dorrs and rear quarter panels painted so some of my clear coat is brand new lol...some shop massively put deep deep scratches in it when I was gettinh ail dents taken out :(
How long has it been since your re-paint?? And how much time passed from the re-paint to the dent repair? You should let your paint cure before you do ANYTHING. Otherwise, your paint will be in a condition where it will scratch extremely easy.

As far as parking outside, there is nothing wrong with your paint, even if you've only waxed it once. You should polish your paint at least once a year. A claybar will do you good. Don't worry about marring your paint. As long as you do it correctly, you will get great results. I find a good car soap is a great lubricant for the clay. I've used gold class and deep crystal from Meg. as lubricants.

I'm gonna tell you to read the stickies now because every question you have yet to ask has been covered already and there is no use in typing it all over again ;)
