    Sadly when you get a light rain or even just dampness it will bring some pollutants from the air with it.

    Having said that I live in a smoggy town, if your area is rural, you may get away with using say a quick detailler first rather than a full re wash...

    Problem is, especially with black, any contaminants on the paint, then polished in, will cause damage..

    What did you polish it with???? If you used something like SRP or another all in one you will be fine as it has its own protection. Therefore just dry it off and apply your wax.

    Morning ginge, lime prime is what i used, thought i'd use dodo juice for a change, car is dry , been round her no water marks from dampness on polish, thought i'd give her a light rub over with lambs wool buffing glove then start waxing once the temp rises a little.
    Toaffer need pics when finished, mines going black with either red or silver carriers.
