    Does drcolorchip stand up to washing and waxing? Years?

    How much prep-work is needed? i.e. do you have to clean out any wax, etc. residue in the chip?

    Thanks

    I've done a few chips now and so far so good. My oldest application of the product is about 5 months old now and it looks the same. The box has detailed instructions as far as application. I washed the car, applied some rubbing alcohol to remove any wax, then applied the product according to the instructions. Easy peasy.

    I have an SWP 13 WRX with a clear bra on the front of the hood, front of the front fenders and the entire bumper. You can tell in certain lighting that is has it, but mine hasn't yellowed a bit and still the front end looks like the day I got it.

    Depends on whether you constantly park outside in the sun I guess. I've had a clearbra for about 3 years. Car is mostly in the garage at home & parking garage at work. No fading at all. Looks just like the day it was installed.
